The storm that hit the central San Joaquin Valley on Sunday brought rain and hail to the Valley, snow to the Sierra, and will be all but gone on Monday.
In Fresno, the storm dropped 0.2 of an inch of rain as of 4:30 p.m. and hail by 7 p.m. on Sunday. The storm was expected to continue through the night and end Monday morning, said meteorologist Jim Andersen with the National Weather Service in Hanford.
“We should be clearing out tomorrow with few clouds hanging,” Andersen said Sunday evening.
Temperatures will be brisk, though. Monday’s high in Fresno is expected to reach 50, and the overnight low will dip to 30. Sunday’s high topped out at 53 degrees.
Snow levels in the Sierra fell to nearly 5,000 feet and the high temperature in Shaver Lake reached only 37, Andersen said.
Grant Grove’s annual Trek to the Nation’s Christmas Tree ceremony took place on Sunday despite the weather.
Grant Grove reached a high of 35 degrees and dropped to 28 degrees by 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Andersen said.
