WEEKLY SOUTH CAROLINA WEATHER 2007
February 12 - February 18, 2007
On both Monday and Tuesday, a general east to south surface wind helped moisten and warm South Carolina's weather. Afternoon high temperatures peaked in the lower 70's althrough central and coastal counties. Thunderstorms with high winds began developing Tuesday evening in response to a sharp cold front entering the state from the west. Minor property damage was caused by confirmed, short path, tornadoes in Allendale, McCormick and Bamberg counties. Booming claps of thunder accompanied areas of intense rain. Cold air advection followed late in the day on Wednesday. On Thursday, most sites reported high temperatures in the 40's. More freezing air arrived on a wave over the weekend. Snow flurries over the Upstate were observed at Table Rock and Greer on Saturday. Clearing skies elsewhere and full sun did little to offset the weekend's biting winds, gusting at 30 mph, and temperatures of around 50 degrees. The state average temperature was five degrees below normal.
The highest official temperature reported was 73 degrees at Jamestown and Hilda on February 13. The lowest official temperature reported was 11 degrees at Caesars Head on the morning of February 17.
