Columbia AP cooled to a date record 58 degrees on Monday morning. Johnston's 52 degrees Monday was their coolest July temperature in over 50 years and N. Myrtle set date records of 62 degrees Monday and 64 degrees on Tuesday. Florence tied their July 23 record low with 59 degrees and set a new date record on July 24 with 63 degrees. The rare and welcomed cool July weather was short lived and was quickly replaced Thursday with more drying heat and afternoon temperatures climbing back into the middle 90's. Strong thunderstorms on Friday produced 2-inch hailstones and a wind gust of 63 mph at Shaw AFB in Sumter. Saturday's storms near the West Ashley community in Charleston County dropped hail the size of golf balls. Wet weather coverage was scattered into Saturday, diminishing to just isolated on a mostly cloudy Sunday. The state average temperature for the period was four degrees below normal.
