A body of cool, Canadian-origin air overspread the state on Monday. As June ended, the Greenville-Spartanburg's rainfall total of 0.13 inches was the least amount ever measured for the month. Bright blue skies were observed on both Tuesday and Wednesday with early morning low temperatures more like those in late September. At 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, Columbia AP recorded a relative humidity value of 17 percent. The dry air was replaced Thursday with more summer-like heat and humidity. Afternoon thunderstorm coverage increased Friday causing brief interruptions to the scheduled July 4th activities. Strong storms on Saturday produced golf ball-sized hail at Pawleys Island in Georgetown County. Another round of thunderstorms on Sunday left pockets of drenching rains across the Midlands to the Pee Dee. The state average temperature for the period was two degrees below normal.
