Snow on the sand? Hail brings rare sight on the sand in South California

It’s not often the sandy beaches turn into a winter wonderland in Southern California.
A cold storm that blew through Sunday night and into early Monday morning brought a rare sight to South Bay beaches on Monday: hail that pelted down and created what looked like a blanket of snow on the sand.
Pono Barnes, spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department Lifeguards, noticed the icy sand early morning in Manhattan Beach and El Segundo, taking images and posting them on social media.

“It wasn’t technically snow, but it’s snow to us at the beach,” he said.
It wasn’t the first time Southern California’s coastline has turned into a winter scene. Back in 2015, a cold winter storm in March blanked the sand in areas such as Huntington Beach and the South Bay with hail, which stuck around for hours, long enough that beachgoers made snowmen just steps away from the ocean.
By late Monday morning, the clouds were parting for blue skies and the “snow” on the sand quickly melted away.
