CALIFORNIA BRIEFING / LOS ANGELES
Scattered showers that cooled temperatures in Southern California over the weekend turned into pea-sized hail Sunday night and early Monday in foothill communities lining the San Gabriel Mountains.
About 11:30 p.m. Sunday, officials started receiving reports of hail, which blanketed streets and accumulated up to half an inch in some areas, said Stuart Seto of the National Weather Service. The hailstorm appeared to have moved east, starting in Altadena and passing through Sierra Madre and Duarte, with the last reports coming about 12:40 Monday morning from Glendora.
Temperatures in downtown L.A. are expected to reach a high of 63 degrees before climbing to 67 Tuesday and into the mid-70s for the rest of the week.
