A double rainbow appeared over Vancouver Monday afternoon after a brief yet intense hail storm pelted the city.

Pictures and video captured on social media show large pebbles of hail falling in East Vancouver to Olympic Village and West Vancouver.

The region has a mixed bag of weather in store, including several days of snow expected for later in the week.

Although Environment Canada had issued a snowfall warning for parts of Metro Vancouver, expecting up to 15 cm of flurries, the alert was called off earlier this morning.

The intense storm quickly gave way to a burst of sunshine, and a rare double rainbow, over the city skyline.
