WEEKLY SOUTH CAROLINA WEATHER 2007
October 22 - October 28, 2007
An upper level low-pressure feature, parked over Mississippi, was responsible for an extended period of warm and wet weather Monday through Friday. Florence set date record high temperatures on Monday, 86 degrees, and Tuesday, 88 degrees. Southerly surface winds became the avenue for showers and thundershowers from the mountains to the coast. Although most locations reported rainfall, the heaviest amounts fell over eastern South Carolina. Between Monday afternoon and Saturday morning, Witherbee in Berkeley County measured 4.91 inches while Greeleyville in nearby Williamsburg County measured 4.45 inches. A surface boundary of dry and colder air helped clear inland locations over the weekend. On Sunday, sites away from the coast observed mostly sunny skies and high temperatures in the middle and upper 60's. Cloudy skies and chilling north to northeast winds were observed along the beaches. The state average temperature for the period was seven degrees above normal.
The highest official temperature reported was 90 degrees at Columbia AP, Columbia Owens AP, Orangeburg AP, and Barnwell on October 23. The lowest official temperature reported was 38 degrees at Lake Bowen on the morning of October 28. The heaviest official 24-hour rainfall reported was 2.90 inches at N Myrtle Beach AP ending at 7:00 a.m. on October 27. The state average rainfall for the period was 1.7 inches.
