July 9 - July 15, 2007


Afternoon high temperatures on Monday through Wednesday climbed into the middle 90's. Some relief from the heat was found following localized thundershowers. A frontal boundary on Wednesday caused episodes of severe weather. Thunderstorm cloud tops of sixty thousand feet during the afternoon contributed to one-inch hail in Sumter, damaging straight-line winds across the southern midlands and short-path tornadoes in Florence and Horry counties. Orangeburg AP recorded a surface wind gust of 54 mph. Lower humidity values on Thursday came with the clearing skies. Friday's weather included a slow increase in clouds and showers across the Upstate. Heavy rains fell near the central coast Saturday associated with a nearly stationary boundary positioned west to east across South Carolina. Little change was observed Sunday with overcast skies and passing thundershowers drifting east. The state average temperature for the period was two degrees below normal.

The highest official temperature reported was 99 degrees at Jamestown on July 10 and 11. The lowest official temperature reported was 57 degrees at Lake Bowen and Caesars Head on the morning of July 14. The heaviest official 24-hour rainfall reported was 2.02 inches at Georgetown AP ending at 7:00 a.m. on July 15. The state average rainfall for the period was 1.2 inches.
