That translates to 0.51 inches of precipitation, according to data an eight-network set of weather stations from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Department of Meteorology gathered in the tri-city area.
Area snowfall compares to 7.6 inches in Flagstaff, a NWS meteorologist said.
While Prescott Valley had six snowplows working the streets until 2:30 p.m., the PV Arizona Department of Transportation maintenance division had seven of its snowplows moving snow off the major highways all day Saturday, an ADOT spokesman said.
Stanton said they had the town's major roadways operable by 10:30 a.m. and the rest by 2:30 p.m. This was the first measurable storm, in a while, they had to plow the streets out in the neighborhoods, as well, he said.
By getting four to five inches in snow, instead of rain, the town's streets didn't suffer any bad situations, only a few potholes. The Public Works Department did not close any streets, he said.
Recent temperatures of 45 to 48 degrees have been slightly below the normal of around 51 degrees, according to the ERAU information on the Weather Underground Website: wwww.wunderground.com.
Prescott Valley residents can expect mostly sunny days and clear nights through Saturday. Winds may increase to 15 m.p.h. today and tomorrow afternoon, with high temperatures in the 46- to 55-degree range, and lows from 14 to 29. Sunday should be partly cloudy, as the temperature creeps up again, and Monday's high could be near 60 degrees.
