A historically cool weekend in Columbia

Sep 19, 2011 12:28:00 PM - thestate.com
The weekend weather in South Carolina wasn't just cool, it was historically cool.

But with fall officially arriving on Friday, summer-like temperatures are forecast to return.

Records were set Saturday for the lowest high temperature for Sept. 17 in Columbia and Florence, according to the National Weather Service. The temperature in Columbia on Saturday rose only to 66, two degrees cooler than the previous record lowest high of 68 in 1946. Florence only got to 63, compared to the previous record of 71 set in 1984.

Charlotte (64) and Asheville (57) also set similar records. And in Charleston, Saturday's low of 60 tied a record set in 1984.

Temperatures are forecast to rise throughout the week, again hitting near 90 by Friday.
