It all amounted to just a trace of precipitation — a barely measurable amount, less than one-hundredth of an inch — at both the Palm Springs and Thermal airports, according to the National Weather Service.

The rain and hail should be over now that afternoon has arrived, said Mike Watkins, a NWS forecaster in San Diego.
