November 1992

In November 1992, cold fronts from the west repeatedly moved through the state bringing heavier than usual precipitation. On the 2nd-5th, thunderstorms brought heavy rain to the Upstate. Some mountain stations received their usual 30-day November rain in this one event. On the 22nd-24th, a cold front that stretched from an intense low pressure area in Ohio Valley created heavy rains and widespread severe thunderstorms. It produced the state’s worst tornado outbreak since 1975. From November 24th-28th, a frontal boundary oscillated across Georgia and the Carolinas and brought showers to the Coastal Plain and Upstate. This month, the state received above normal average precipitation with the greatest occurring in areas like Jocassee in the Upstate.
