Wild mix of rain, hail, snow hits Bay Area
OAKLAND, Calif. (KTVU) - Over the last 24 hours, it's been a mixed bag of wind, rain, snow and hail.
Snow fell on Bay Area peaks including Mt. Diablo. It also hit areas that don't usually see snow like Saratoga in the Santa Cruz Mountains. There's even reports of snow in Napa County. CHP Napa tweeted photos of snow along Mt. St. Helena.
The hail hit especially hard in South San Francisco last night. There were also reports of hail Monday morning in the East Bay and Sonoma.
There are no reports of damage from the hail.
As of Monday morning the storm continued to move through the area with scattered heavy rain.
About a dozen big trees have also fallen in Marin County's Muir Woods - including six giant redwoods. The trees fell due to the soggy ground. No one was hurt.
Park officials say that , while they're sad to see trees fall down, it's actually good for the forest because they create an opening for sunlight, and allow nourishment for other plants and animals.
KTVU meteorologist Steve Paulson says we'll see scattered rain throughout the day before it clears tonight. He says it will become very cold tonight before it warms up later this week.
