October 8 - October 14, 2007


Summer-like heat ignored the October calendar with the mercury reaching 90 degrees or higher on both Monday and Tuesday. The Columbia AP set a date record 94 degrees on October 9. This was also their highest temperature ever recorded for so late in the season. Instability ahead of a slow-moving cold front produced a few lone thundershowers overnight Tuesday into Wednesday but the coverage was isolated at best. On Thursday morning, Barnwell's 48 degrees represented a temperature drop of 43 degrees from a high of 91 degrees on Wednesday. The season's coolest airmass spread over the state Friday morning with several locations chilling into the 30's. Sunny, clear weather was observed through the weekend. The state average temperature for the period was four degrees above normal.

The highest official temperature reported was 94 degrees at Bennettsville, Cades, Orangeburg, Mullins, and Columbia AP on October 9. The lowest official temperature reported was 35 degrees at Cedar Creek on the morning of October 13. The heaviest official 24-hour rainfall reported was 0.75 inches at Bennettsville ending at 7:00 a.m. on October 10. The state average rainfall for the period was 0.0 inches.
