Whether you're planning a visit or moving to Prosper, it's nice to know what to expect when it comes to weather.
Here we will look at the climate of Prosper, Texas, which indicates the weather conditions over a longer duration. However, keep in mind there are certainly heat and cool waves that cause the weather to fall outside of these average temperatures.
Spring temperatures are quite comfortable, with average March temperatures in the mid 50's, April in the low 60's, and May in the low 70's.
During these Spring months, the average precipitation is three to five-and-a-half inches, with May being the wettest month of the year.
Weather in Prosper averages highs in the 90s during the summer but certainly creeps up toward the high 90s from time to time or even 100.
On average, June has temperatures in the high 80's, July has temperatures in the low 90's and August remains in the high 90's.
During these three summer months, there is only an average of two to three inches of precipitation each month, making for a rather dry summer.
In the Fall months, temperatures begin to slowly drop again. September has an average temperature in the mid-'80s, while October drops to the mid-'70s and then November cools to the low 60s.
There is not a great rise in precipitation, as the average rainfall continues to range from three to four-and-a-half inches during these Fall months. However, even with relatively low precipitation, October is the second wettest month behind May.
Winter months bring the coolest temperatures with the December and January averages in the low 40s, oftentimes dropping to freezing at night. February warms up ever so subtly to the mid-'40s before ushering in more comfortable Spring temperatures.

Throughout the year, daytime and nighttime averages are within twenty degrees, allowing for some evening cooling during the summer months and some light freezes during the winter.
Low Hurricane Risk
The best news besides the weather is the very low risk of hurricanes in this area. There have only been 16 hurricanes recorded in Prosper since 1930, with the most recent being in 2015. We never really see any damage just lots of rain.
Higher Tornado Risk
Prosper does rank as high risk for tornadoes. With an average of 132 tornadoes per year hitting Texas, it is not surprising that Prosper and the Collin County area see an average of three per year.
Most residents have a "safe room" designated for these events, and tornado sirens are used to warn the public of major storm events headed toward the area.
