Hail Obscures Rainbow in Scenic Montana Valley

A man admiring a rainbow in Montana’s Flathead Valley was surprised at the speedy turn the weather took as hail pelted the area on Thursday, July 7.

The footage shows a towering rainbow in the distance seen through moderate hail. As the video pans out, a dramatic increase in the intensity of hail and wind is visible.
