WEEKLY SOUTH CAROLINA WEATHER 2007
February 19 - February 25, 2007
After a cold sunrise on Monday, mild conditions settled across the state. Light showers fell over the Pee Dee Tuesday and many locations recorded afternoon temperatures in the 60's. Wednesday's thunderstorms in Tigerville produced near half-inch hail that the public reported "as covering the ground." Sunny blue skies returned Thursday on west winds gusting as high as 33 mph at Anderson AP. Those same down slope surface winds warmed South Carolina into the middle 70's. Increased cloudiness on Friday lowered temperatures a few degrees. Pleasant weather continued for Saturday into Sunday before an eastward moving boundary of thundershowers exited the coast. Areas of dense fog were observed developing during the evening hours following the rain. The state average temperature was three degrees above normal.
The highest official temperature reported was 77 degrees at Givhans on February 22. The lowest official temperature reported was 17 degrees at Pageland on the morning of February 19. The heaviest official 24-hour rainfall reported was 1.11 inches at Greer NWS on February 25. The average statewide rainfall for the period was 0.7 inches.
