According to the National Weather Service in Phoenix, 2.24 inches of rain was recorded west of Bouse and observers reported dime-sized hail as a series of storms made their way through La Paz and Mohave counties Monday.
The storm that hit that area enhanced the chance of tornadoes, although none were reported. A brief tornado was spotted in Cave Creek, near Phoenix.
Highway 72 was shut down for more than four hours near Bouse after storms went through Monday morning. Motorists were forced to wait for the water to recede as flash flooding quickly took over washes.
Another storm rolled through an area north of Lake Havasu City near the Interstate 40-State Route 95 intersection at Pilot. The National Weather Service in Las Vegas, Nev., reported heavy rain throughout that area, including in Kingman.
Golf ball-sized hail was reported by observers at the Shops at Lake Havasu, north of town.
According to the forecast for Lake Havasu City, there is no precipitation predicted in the area for the next couple of days with a 40 percent chance of rain Thursday.
