-8; Cedar Creek, March 3, 1980

The NCDC and xmACIS publicized the minimum low temperature in South Carolina for March as -3 degrees in Chesnee 7 WSW. However, John Purvis, the Meteorologist in Charge at Columbia’s National Weather Service, wrote in a NCDC publication that Cedar Creek reached a low temperature of -8 on March 3, 1980. Since it was not an official station at the time, it was not considered when looking at the state’s lowest temperatures.
