Thunderstorm Cells Pound Mountains Around Banning Pass, Coachella Valley


Severe thunderstorm warnings expired in Riverside County, the National Weather Service reported Thursday, but rain and lightning strikes are expected to continue throughout the day.

Thunderstorm cells dumped heavy rain Wednesday in parts of the San Bernardino National Forest and caused roadway flooding in the San Gorgonio Pass and east of the Coachella Valley, while lightning strikes caused damage in at least one location, amid the first monsoonal activity of summer.

The storm prompted the NWS to issue a severe thunderstorm warning, but it expired at 6 p.m. Wednesday. The storm weakened below severe limits and did not pose a threat to life or property. Periods of moderate rain, lightning and gusty winds were expected to continue in the area Thursday.
