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.

The highest official temperature reported was 95 degrees at Columbia AP and at Columbia Owens AP on September 24. The lowest official temperature reported was 39 degrees at Lake Bowen on the morning of September 30. The heaviest official 24-hour rainfall reported was 1.05 inches at Ridgeville ending at 7:00 a.m. on September 27. The state average rainfall for the period was 0.0 inches.
