Was there any tornadic activity? I've witnessed some pretty strong thunderstorms but never a supercell.


The storm did produce a tornado, but not until after it passed my location since it was still maturing upon arrival.

The hail core and microburst smacked us good though. Hail was grape-sized, and I recorded a wind gust to 62mph through the trees (so it was probably stronger in reality). Downed a bunch of limbs and messed up my neighbor's siding and awning.

Sounds like a fun experience. Can grape-size hail damage car surfaces?

I took this one in my yard last week, so technically it's a spring photo:

Usually not, but when it's wind blasted it can do mild damage to siding and trees, at least based on what I've seen. Also seems like the physical nature of the hailstones matters, as I've noticed that the spiky hailstones are usually lighter, while the solid/round ones are heavier and don't shatter as easily.

In June of 2010, a stronger storm dropped lacrosse ball sized hail, in solid/round form, and it did moderate damage to cars, trees, and roofing.

A short video of our snowfall on December 8th last winter. This was the "opening shot" of our winter, the first frozen precip event for Portland. Video shot at the beginning of the event at noon (you can hear the church bell at the start of the video).

I thought I would share some pics from last winter. I took these at my friend's apartment complex in Troutdale on December 10th. That's his neighbor's car.

Thanks wx_statman for the reminder of a great winter. There's sort of a contest going on a California site over when the Tioga Pass will be cleared. Here are photos of recent conditions in Yosemite.
