A thunderstorm brought heavy rain and hail to the Phoenix metropolitan area on Monday, December 9, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.
The NWS issued a series of weather warnings for the area, including a flood advisory and a severe thunderstorm warning. The Arizona Department of Transportation said hail was accumulating on roadways.
This video shows a mound of hail building up in the front yard of a home in Mesa, about 20 miles east of Phoenix. Will Ray, who filmed the video, later referred to the accumulation as a “little Mount Fuji.” Credit: @thirdageamps via Storyful
