On Wednesday afternoon around 2:30pm, a thunderstorm produced heavy rain and copious amounts of hail just east of Russell. Several accidents were reported on Interstate 70 near the 189th and Pioneer Exit. Cookie Prosser emailed pictures of the hail at her residence.
The rain switched to light snow Wednesday night and left a dusting by Thursday morning.
