Prescott finds itself in the higher terrain of the Bradshaw mountains, and is officially in a “Mediterranean” climate. That means, every once in a while, it rains. The splash of rain from a thunderstorm on Tuesday was really only particularly surprising because nearly all thought that dry air was on its way, with an end to the periodic afternoon thunderstorms following suit. Nope! The Weather Service and their acolytes at Weatherbug were wary of the potential clearing, giving them the victory, predicting a very slight chance of rain very close to the Mojave.
Actuals: Monday – High 88, Low 63
