April 23 - April 29, 2007


Spring warming was observed most of the workweek with 80-degree afternoon high temperatures reported from the coast to near the mountains. On both Wednesday and Thursday, the thermometer neared 90 degrees. Open pan evaporation losses of 0.43 inches during the 24-hour period increased stress on drying topsoils. A boundary of cooler air swept through the state late Thursday and into Friday morning with just a few scattered thundershowers. Although Orangeburg AP reported a period of heavy rain during passing storms on Friday morning, amounts were generally less than one-quarter of an inch. Clearing blue skies followed through the weekend. Cedar Creek measured 43 degrees for a Sunday morning low temperature before a full day of sunshine sent the mercury up into the middle 80's across most locations. The state average temperature for the period was five degrees above normal.

The highest official temperature reported was 90 degrees at Jamestown on April 25. The lowest official temperature reported was 39 degrees at Cedar Creek on the morning of April 23. The heaviest official 24-hour rainfall reported was 0.52 inches at Clinton ending at 7:00 a.m. on April 27. The state average rainfall for the period was 0.1 inches.
