Patchy storms lashed the region on Thursday afternoon, with some parts drenched by torrential downpours while others enjoyed around the 10-millimetre mark.
The Blayney Golf Course was flooded for a period, with close to 50mm falling in an hour at the course at lunchtime, filling up the club's dam.
Officially, Orange recorded 13.8mm of rain in just over an hour from 3pm at its weather station at the airport, the mid-afternoon storm bringing some relief to a region that's seemingly gone without any significant rain for months.
Thursday's storm brought with it the most meaningful rain this month following 8.8mm on January 7 and the best since 18.6mm fell on November 4.
The only other day in double figures was on December 2, last year, when 10.4mm.
It came after the Bureau of Meteorology issued a severe weather warning for the region, with flash flooding and strong winds predicted to arrive in the afternoon.
That warning was extended into Thursday evening, as well, with more flash flooding and damaging winds on the cards for the city, and large parts of the state.
There's an 80 per cent chance of more rain on Friday, with as much as 10mm predicted to fall again while Monday looms as the city's next best chance of meaningful rain, with a 90 per cent chance of rain. Between 6mm and 20mm is forecast.
