From 20" of snow to hail the size of golf balls

Posted: Updated:
TULARE COUNTY, California -

The storm system that is driving Monday's cold front into Ohio has already left a legacy across the western and central United States.  An EF-0 tornado touched down in California on Friday.  It lasted 3-4 minutes, damaging a building at a dairy farm, according to a report filed by the National Weather Service.  Then, more than 20" of snow fell in Livingston, Montana as the storm crossed the Rockies and moved into the Great Plains.  On Saturday as the storm slid farther east, law enforcement officials in Nebraska reported hail to the size of golf balls.  Golf ball size hail was also reported in Kansas.  A cluster of reports of damaging wind followed one of the thunderstorms farther north, in Minnesota on Saturday.  This Veterans Day, heavy rain is soaking areas from Chicago to eastern Arkansas, and thunderstorms are producing wind damage in the ArkLaTex area, where Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas come together.

Locally, we are not expecting severe weather.  Soaking rain will arrive around daybreak on Monday, initially to the west of I-75, and then overspreading the rest of the area.  It will be breezy, with winds gusting to near 30 or 35 mph on Monday, as a cold rain falls through the morning.  Before precipitation entirely exits, a few snow flurries may occur on Monday evening, but no accumulations are expected.  In the wake of the front, highs on Tuesday will struggle to reach 40°.

Due to the increasing wind and wave heights on Lake Erie, a Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the Ohio lakeshore, beginning at 10 PM this Sunday night.

    An old, abandoned, overgrown factory field near Milroy Street is changing for the better day by day.
