HELLO SPRINGTIME!: Lightning, heavy rain, hail greet Whitley County

Staff Writer

Lightning, heavy rain and pea-sized hail greeted the first day of spring early Monday in Whitley County. The wicked lightning, booming thunder and rat-tat-tat small hail started about 4:30 a.m. and was to continue off and on through 8 a.m., with a wet Monday in store but moderating temperatures in the 50s.
After a cold spell Wednesday with a high in the 30s, the daytime highs will continue to swell into the upper 50s thereafter.
Hello, springtime?
