Graham Onions claimed the final wicket of the innings when Simon Kerrigan was caught by Scott Borthwick without scoring.
The Durham openers faced three deliveries before play was brought to halt by more rain.
The hosts resume on day three 68 runs behind Lancashire’s first innings total.
At the close of play Durhamccc.co.uk spoke to Ben Stokes, “It’s very frustrating losing so much cricket to the bad weather, it just seems to have followed us this season and on top of that we haven’t performed as well as would have liked to.
“We need to take our opportunities when we’re on the pitch and capitalise on any conditions that are favourable, whether we’re batting or bowling. If we get out there tomorrow we’ll be trying our best to get the runs on the board and get a good lead, something that our bowlers can bowl to.
“We know 62 could be a crucial lead for them but we have to go out there with a positive mentality and not worry so much about the lead and pile on as many runs and stay at the crease for as long as we can.”
