WEEKLY SOUTH CAROLINA WEATHER 2007
September 24 - September 30, 2007
Hot, dry weather continued Monday with afternoon high temperatures in the 90's. A seasonal cooling trend started on Tuesday as high pressure began overspreading the state southward along the eastern seaboard. Surface winds from the ocean to the shore held high temperatures for Myrtle Beach to 82 degrees and for Charleston City at 81 degrees. Wednesday's afternoon seabreeze boundary contributed to a few isolated thundershowers away from the coast but most of South Carolina was rain free. A secondary push of continental air arrived for the weekend. On both Saturday and Sunday there was a noticeable drop in temperatures, accompanied by brisk northeast winds and bright, blue skies. At 10:00 a.m. Sunday, Greer NWS reported a barometric pressure of 30.47 inches. The state average temperature for the period was four degrees above normal.
