Hailstorm Hits Southern California; Huntington Beach And Long Beach Turn White

No that’s not snowfall in Long Beach,and Huntington, CA Beaches. A massive hailstorm struck the area late Monday morning, stunning residents who quickly ran outside to get a picture or play in the unusual weather. Hail was reported in areas like Huntington Beach and Long Beach – areas that have seen little precipitation of any kind in recent months due to a long-term drought that has gripped the West. “Upper-level energy associated with Winter Storm Thor has been triggering thunderstorms along the California coast since this past weekend,” said weather.com meteorologist Chris Dolce. “These thunderstorms produced small hail that whitened the ground in parts of the Bay Area on Saturday and did the same in Southern California on Monday.”
