Rain and hail fell hard on parts of Pasadena and throughout the L.A. County.
By News Desk
Residents posted on social media photos and videos of hail covering their backyards and streets.
The National Weather Service cautioned against driving, as scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to affect portions of L.A. County, with potential for strong gusty and erratic winds, hail and/or graupel and heavy downpours throughout the evening.
The full brunt of the storm is expected early Friday morning into Saturday. Greater hourly rain rates and possible snowfall are expected north of Pasadena in the foothills.
