Here’s how much rain fell in the Coachella Valley yesterday


Monday was a day filled with surprise thunderstorms in the Coachella Valley. This led to some great photos and something pretty rare in the desert: precipitation.

Things will clear out today, but, according to the forecast, there is a 40% chance of some more showers hitting Palm Springs on Thursday.
