The sky around Orange was lit up by hundreds of lightning strikes on Wednesday night.
There were 488 lightning strikes recorded within a 30 kilometre radius of Orange, with 85 of those hitting the ground.
However, Canobolas Zone Rural Fire Service operational services coordinator Brett Bowden said those lightning strikes did not result in fire due to the amount of rain the region has recently had.
He said there may be some smouldering but it was too wet to ignite.
"It's not a bad time for us to get a bit of a storm," Inspector Bowden said.
Orange SES unit commander Inspector Rob Stevens said the SES also had no call outs overnight.
"It was fairly short and sharp," Inspector Stevens said.
He said it was surprising not to have any call outs compared to a storm last Friday that resulted in 100 call outs for downed trees and damaged roofs.
"On the first day we had 92 call outs, we manage to wrap a good portion of those by midnight but the guys were out all weekend," Inspector Stevens said.
"Last night, not a peep."
Inspector Stevens said more storms are predicted for the weekend.
"We will expect to see storms become more frequent from now," he said.
As a result of Wednesday night's storm the Bureau of Meteorology recorded 6.2 millimetres of rainfall at Orange Airport by 9am on Thursday.
Most of that rain fell between 11pm and 2am.
The strongest windgust was 48km/h at 11.07pm and the wind speed reached 20km/h.
NSW Fire and Rescue also did not report any storm related call outs.
The bureau is also forecasting a 95 per cent chance of rain from the late morning on Friday and the chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoon and evening with the temperature to range from 3 degrees to 13 degrees.
On Saturday the temperature is predicted to range from 3 to 11 degrees with a 70 per cent change of showers and a late thunderstorm.
More showers are expected on Sunday through to Wednesday.
