WEEKLY SOUTH CAROLINA WEATHER 2007
June 25 - July 1, 2007
Afternoon thunderstorms, driven by fourteen-hour days of heating from the sun, were observed Monday through Friday. Multi-cell storms on Monday produced hail that covered the ground near Nesmith in Williamsburg County and Anderson AP measured a wind gust of 60 mph. High temperatures during the workweek climbed into the middle 90's. Locations along the immediate beaches were able to enjoy a sea breeze and its associated cooler air temperatures. On Friday, forcing from an approaching and unseasonable cold front furthered the unstable conditions and formed strong evening thunderstorms. Rainfall rates, estimated near two inches per hour, caused street flooding in downtown Columbia late Friday night. On Saturday, the state was divided west to east across the Midlands by a boundary of cooler and drier air. Thundershowers continued to develop south of the front into Sunday. At week's end, cloudy skies and lowering temperatures had replaced the stretch of tropical weather. The state average temperature for the period was one degree above normal.
