It’s been an evening of unusual weather. The large hailstones in the photo above came down around 7 p.m. in the Willow Creek area. Two different people described 90-degree weather, hail, and weirdly twisted clouds.

In addition, we had multiple reports of lightning in northern Mendocino and some reports in Southern Humboldt.

What have you seen?



  • Lightning strikes about 2 hours ago south west of Garberville…

  • Some more from wc

  • Lightening strikes in Redway.

  • Lightning visible south of Briceland. About an hour ago it was lighting up once to twice a minute.

  • Nice, dont let it strike you in the head, youll never be the same!

  • we are having lighting and thunder storms 9 miles north of willits

  • Lightening strikes for the last three hours north-west of Willits. Just stopped. Mega clouds coming from the north east. Opposite of usual.

    • There is nothing on about this. all has is warnings for Humboldt and trinity county. You would think after 3 hours they would update their website.

      • I agree, and it definitely feeds the idea that there are tests being done to control the weather!
        Which doesnt seem like something that needs to be hidden unless the contents of what theyre using to shift weather patterns is toxic or something.
        The cover of nat geo years ago showed scientists in japan launching cylindars to the sky in attempt to seed clouds.

        Hey NWS folk, if your reading this can you comment on hail during 90° weather?

  • There’s no way hail fell that big in WC. You’re pulling my leg. Sorry. Not buying it.

  • I noticed the strange clouds earlier in the day, but still didn’t expect to see this news.

  • I saw thunderhead clouds at 4pm going into redway.

    God’s judgment on devil’s lettuce addicts and associated production facilities….

    • Hermit of Livry

      Through spiritualism, Satan appears as a benefactor of the race, healing the diseases of the people, and professing to present a new and more exalted system of religious faith; but at the same time he works as a destroyer. His temptations are leading multitudes to ruin. Intemperance dethrones reason; sensual indulgence, strife, and bloodshed follow. Satan delights in war, for it excites the worst passions of the soul and then sweeps into eternity its victims steeped in vice and blood. It is his object to incite the nations to war against one another, for he can thus divert the minds of the people from the work of preparation to stand in the day of God.
      Satan works through the elements also to garner his harvest of unprepared souls. He has studied the secrets of the laboratories of nature, and he uses all his power to control the elements as far as God allows. When he was suffered to afflict Job, how quickly flocks and herds, servants, houses, children, were swept away, one trouble succeeding another as in a moment. It is God that shields His creatures and hedges them in from the power of the destroyer. But the Christian world have shown contempt for the law of Jehovah; and the Lord will do just what He has declared that He would—He will withdraw His blessings from the earth and remove His protecting care from those who are rebelling against His law and teaching and forcing others to do the same. Satan has control of all whom God does not especially guard. He will favor and prosper some in order to further his own designs, and he will bring trouble upon others and lead men to believe that it is God who is afflicting them.

      • Are you saying the CHUMP is satan?

      • Mr. Hermit dude, did you write that all by yourself? ‘Cause if you did, you are working WAY above your pay-grade. I mean if that came out of the little handful of magic beans that you use by way of a brain, then BY CRACKY, that is some seriously awesome shit!

        But, of course, if it was written by another… well, no attribution, that’s like, plagiarism. Know what I mean? And Almighty Bog does not fancy people who plagiarize the works of others.

    • So, does Bog and all his holy angels make a distinction between thy righteous, permitted and approved growers of sacred lettuce and thy great unwashed filthy hordes of evil “unregulated ones”? Or is lettuce all the same in his infinite wisdoms?

  • Between Laytonville and Leggett

  • Between Laytonville and Leggett again

    a lot of people think we’re crazy saying those things! Were not! Get off that darn phone…get off face book for more than 5 minutes and just look up! The planes, drones fly a few times a week. I know this becuz I look up! I even take pictures and video…tben time lapse the chemtrails….as guess what a thick haze develops and man made clouds develope….its not rocket science people…..2+2 is not 5….but a lot of us are consumed by the next big movie…tbe nicest house on the block…wutever it might be….And guess wut….all sorts of things happening around right now and has been the last 20 years and we chop it up as a phenomenon…giess wut people we are at war and we don’t even know it….call me crazy call me paranoid…i don’t care wut u say….just put that dam smart phone away and look wuts going on. So u think it’s normal to have hail in 90° weather or to have a double rainbow halo around the sun! Hmmm
    If u can’t explain it just say it’s a phenomenon right!! I have a test for you…can u say screw it and not go without yur smart phone for over a a week…how about a day….pretty real right. So the next time you may look up and see a plain leaving a contrail….its really a chemtrails poisoning every one of us…but u can call me crazy, loony or off his walker….wutever u want to call me…i know wuts going on and don’t take my word for it..look in the news…read the bible…and yes if u think I can make hail in 90° weather all I can say is I can’t do it but HARRP got u covered!
    Just love me some MONSANTO’S seeds!!

    • “ me crazy call me paranoid..”

      Um, O.K. I would be happy to. Seek help son.

      BTW- I dont even own a cell phone.

    • Do you even science?

    • Most of us have lived w/o Cel phones for a long time or at least a while before they became commonplace. And summertime thunderstorms and hail are not that uncommon around here. Ok maybe hail is uncommon in late July but thunderstorms and lightning are pretty reliable.

      Let’s just hope not too many big fires start from this. I saw forest service fire rig heading east on 299 this morning.

    • I thought Trump put a halt on the weather chemtrails.
      Those who don’t believe this crazy stuff can go to… google and search for the companies that specialize in doing it. Also, listen to the scientists who aren’t into the ridiculous consensus for profit science.

    • NO MATTER THE CAPS-LOCK! THE SHEEPLE WILL NOT AWAKE FROM THEIR SOMA-INDUCED SLUMBER! What thickness of foil do you use? I think mine’s stopped working. Brainwave interference.

    • It seem like the people that say “wake up people”… slept during science class…

  • i just had to…

  • This is all happening after Trump pulled the US out of the Paris Accords.

    Coincidence? I think not.

  • Here in Fortuna yesterday afternoon we saw huge weird white cloud formation up over the ridge looking North East… At first it was a pyramid shape looked like maybe some kind of thunder lightening clouds… It stayed there for hours just flattening some but looked like maybe it could strike or blow anytime…it kinda looked like “bomb” clouds rising but it remained in place…the wind currents seemed minimal as it rose and fell in place…We worried about fires of course… Could have taken photos here it was way before dark, clear blue sky with sun in west shining and no other clouds in sight. We saw also a tiny white silent air vehicle cruising across the sky overhead… Was coming from North to South no sound just headed in a beeline until it disappeared.

  • Wicked awsome photos!!! I hope everyone is safe and we are having strange weather. Nothing new for Humboldt. Listen to AL Gore,he has been telling people for well over a decade to stop killing our planet before it’s too late. Huh

  • Catch Some Waves!

    Was surfing camel rock / moonstone zone in front of Trump house last night & it started to rain. Was raining lightly in parking lot as I was leaving. Got down the road a bit and no rain. The fog was thick last night like pea soup. The water was glassy and the waves were actually pretty good. Long rides all the way to the beach. The lineup was empty. Everyone was out the 2 nights before, because it was sunny and a bit windy. The rookies don’t realize the surf is actually better here when it is foggy. Means no wind and glassy surf 🏄

  • I, how did you make that picture of Trump? That is so awesome. Thank you that made my week.

  • People that think large hail formation is impossible at high temps should actually understand how hail is formed…
