A powerful thunderstorm was rumbling across the Antelope Valley on Monday afternoon, dropping heavy rain and dime-sized pieces of hail, officials said.

The California Highway Patrol urged motorists to use caution while navigating roads. 

The National Weather Service issued a thunderstorm warning through Monday evening for the Lancaster area.

"There's lots of lightning and rains and some accidents out there," said Stuart Seto, a weather specialist with the agency's Oxnard office.

The thunderstrom activity was being sparked by a low pressure system clashing with monsoonal moisture. 

Seto said hail the size of dimes had fallen in the area. Winds up to 60 mph were also expected,.
