September 10 - September 16, 2007


On both Monday and Tuesday, afternoon high temperatures were recorded in the middle to upper 90's. A weak frontal boundary dropped southeast Tuesday evening with a few welcomed thundershowers. The nearly stationary feature became the avenue for increased rainfall coverage for central counties eastward to the coast through Thursday. On Friday, the remnants of once Hurricane Humberto, which had made landfall near the Texas-Louisiana border early Thursday morning, combined with the boundary over the Upstate to produce heavy thunderstorms. Anderson received 3.50 inches of rain and there was a tornado report from Clinton in Laurens County. Over the weekend, a modified Canadian airmass slowly replaced the longstanding summer heat with much cooler weather. By Sunday afternoon, high temperatures were peaking in the lower 80's. The state average temperature for the period was four degrees above normal.

The highest official temperature reported was 99 degrees at Darlington AP on September 11. The lowest official temperature reported was 50 degrees at Lake Bowen on the morning of September 16. The heaviest official 24-hour rainfall reported was 3.53 inches at Georgetown AP ending at 7:00 a.m. on September 13. The state average rainfall for the period was 1.2 inches.
