There were only two overs possible at Headingley between Surrey and Yorkshire, the hosts moving to 212 for 8.
Durham's second day against Hampshire at Chester-le-Street was washed out.
Cameron White took 4 for 28 to help Somerset dismiss Essex for 282 on the second day at Taunton. Essex lost Grant Flower, shortly followed by James Foster, but Mark Pettini, their mainstay yesterday, dropped anchor to defy the Somerset bowlers. However when White bowled him for 73 the Essex lower-middle order offered little of substance, especially against White's turn. Essex hit back - Tony Palladino trapped Neil Edwards leg-before - before rain curtailed the day's play with Somerset on 28 for 1.
Derbyshire's second day against Glamorgan at Derby was also washed out.
Leicestershire's match against Middlesex at Grace Road still has yet to get underway due to rain.
