We put out the call on Facebook and Twitter for pictures and video of the storm that blew through our area Monday afternoon.

And you responded. We’ve put together some of the best video and photos we received from viewers of hail, storm clouds and lightning.

KATU Meteorologist Dave Salesky says the most intensive showers came through between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. Things settled down after that.

It reached 61 degrees at Portland International Airport on Monday, which is a little over 10 degrees below the average high temperature.

Better weather is ahead, Salesky says. High pressure builds up over the area by midweek and Salesky says temperatures should reach into the mid-70s.

This is just a selection. More viewers posted their pictures on our Facebook page. Like us on Facebook and post yours too!
