Was It Snow In Sacramento Today? Experts Say No ... Yet 'Snowball' Fights Went Down.

Northern California experienced some wild weather this afternoon.

Hail pelted the Sacramento region beginning just before noon:


There were long stretches of roaring thunder — and even reports that "snow" was falling.


Reports of funnel clouds, due to the thunderstorms, surfaced on social media.

The unusual weather led to accidents and traffic incidents throughout the area.


But some Sacramentans went out and made the best of the unexpected iciness: snowmen, snowball fights.

California's First Dog even got in on some of the fun. 


But ... for the record: The National Weather Service confirmed that there was no snow in Sacramento on Monday.
