Remembering the May 24, 2019 Tornado-Like Storm that Brought Golf-Ball Sized Hail to NorCal

The Memorial Day weekend of 2019 was just getting started when the National Weather Service issued a rare tornado warning for Northern California. It was widely reported that the storm was going to wash-out the many people looking for outdoor recreation during the 3-day weekend, but we had no idea that a tornado was getting ready to slam NorCal with incredible cloud formations and golf-ball sized hail.

It was the night of Friday, May 24th, 2019, when the clouds began to build over Shasta County in an eery fashion. While the smart took shelter from the rare-May storm, some brave photographers headed outside to see the golf ball-sized hail and insane cloud cell that looked more like Mordor than NorCal.

The size of the hail was absolutely shocking:

In the 24 hours following the storm, a wave of incredible photos and videos began to circulate the internet, showing every angle of the beautiful super cell cloud that formed over the area. Let’s take a look at some of the best from that night:

This time-lapse was captured in the outskirts of Redding California. Where an unusual storm appeared. Northern California is known for its fires, but on Friday of May 24, 2019 there was a tornado warning as well as baseball sized hail falling from the sky. Mother Nature is amazing to witness, and sometimes it’s when we aren’t looking for her that she makes her grand entrance. . . . . . . #redding #reddingca #reddingcalifornia #northerncalifornia #northerncali #northerncal #landscapephotography #lamdscape #storms #nature #naturelovers #nature_good #landscape_love #tornado #tornadowarning #tornadohunters #timelapse #timelapsed #nature_brilliance #natures#californialandscape #landscape_love #storms #storm #stormy #clouds #cloudscapes
