From hail to funnel clouds to snow, Southern California saw a range of wild weather on Sunday, May 7, 2017.

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A winter-like storm hit Southern California quickly on a spring Sunday, bringing hail, lightning and even snow to mountain communities.

Hail fell inland from West Covina and Chino Hills to further east areas of San Bernardino County.

A funnel cloud was spotted in the San Dimas area, and a land spout was seen in Victorville Sunday afternoon. Residents were warned to stay inside if possible.

A land spout was seen touching down near the Victorville airport on Sunday, May 7, 2017.

A funnel cloud was spotted over San Dimas, but no damage was reported on Sunday, May 7, 2017.

Lightning was also seen in some areas, while snow fell at the 4,500-foot level in the mountains.

Some Southern Californians enjoyed the wild winter weather that hit on Sunday, with one girl jumping around on her trampoline after the hail fell.

The storms came just days after the region saw more typical summer-like conditions in the 80-degree range.
