The last time measurable rainfall occurred at downtown Los Angeles was April 17th when (.01) inches was recorded.  As a result the 181 consecutive days of no rainfall at downtown Los Angeles will likely come to an end.  This would be the sixth longest time period of consecutive dry days dating back to 1921.  For more significant rainfall at downtown Los Angeles one would have to go back to March 2nd when (.27) inches of rain was recorded.
