Here's the latest estimate on how much rain we'll see this weekend - ending early Monday morning. I wish I could bring you better news. Don't focus on specific rain totals for specific cities. (These rain totals will almost certainly not come in exactly as you see.) What IS important is that nearly all of us in South Carolina will see somewhere between 6 and 12 inches of rain in a very short time. This will cause flooding. So please take every precaution you can. And never drive into a flooded road. I'll be here all weekend keeping you updated. Please be safe!

SNOWING IN SALUDAJim Gandy: An intense upper-level system will be passing over the Midlands this morning. The dynamic nature of this system will produce rain from much of the Midlands. This may combine with a cold pool of air aloft to produce a mix of snow or sleet with the rain as shown in the late night run of our computer model.
The precipitation will begin to develop early this morning and continue intermittently until early afternoon. The best chance for a wintry mix will be between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. This most likely areas to be affected will be in the piedmont areas and possibly some of the Midlands.
Surface temperatures will be too warm for this to last and no travel problems are expected. All of the precipitation will move out of the area by late afternoon.
This computer model performed well Friday evening and there is good confidence in its projection. This is a dynamic situation which will change rapidly this morning.

For the next week................BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGet ready for a Marvelous Monday! High pressure will be in control of the weather the next several days. Look for mostly sunny skies with highs today in the upper 70s, warming to the low 80s as we move through the week.

Temperature record setPosted: Dec 18, 2012 3:25 PM EST
Updated: Dec 18, 2012 3:25 PM EST
By Jeremy Turnage - email
The state's Climatology Office revealed Tuesday that South Carolina broke the all-time record high for temperature this past summer with 113 degrees on June 29.
That record high was reached at the University of South Carolina.
Forecasters have been keeping records in Columbia since 1887, but never in 126 years of record keeping has the temperature been that high in the Palmetto State.
A temperature gauge at Columbia Metropolitan Airport reached 109 degrees in the days before the official record was smashed.
Florence set a record at 104 degrees, and the Greenville-Spartanburg Airport also set a record for June 30 at 103 degrees.
The hottest temperature ever recorded in South Carolina was 111 degrees in Camden in June 1954.
Most of the state was blasted with heat during the first few weeks of summer this year.

Dry OctoberExceptionally dry October. Less than 1/2 inch rain for month.
"While precipitation is abundant the entire year in almost the entire state, the coastline tends to have a slightly wetter summer, while inland March tends to be the wettest month.
During the cold season, extratropical cyclones is the main cause of precipitation, while during the summer, tropical cyclones and thunderstorms forming due to afternoon heating are the main causes of precipitation.
A lee side rain shadow from the Appalachian Mountains lowers annual precipitation across central portions of the state.
Inland sections average 40 inches (1,000 mm) to 50 inches (1,300 mm) of rainfall,
while near the coast 50 inches (1,300 mm) to 60 inches (1,500 mm),
the Piedmont receives 70 inches (1,800 mm) to 80 inches (2,000 mm) of precipitation.
Saluda is considered to be one of the Midland counties of SC

Record High Temp should cool after todayColumbia, SC (WLTX) - Columbia has set another record high temperature.
The high for April 6, 2010 was 92 degrees, which was set at 3:24 p.m. The old record was 89 degrees, which was set in 1967.
The average high temperature for this day is 73. Last year, the high was just 69 degrees.
This was the 3rd day in the 90's in just the first six days of April. The record for the most number of days in the 90's for April is 8, which happened more than a century ago, in 1896.
Our average temperature is just slightly above 70 so far this month, just over 10 degrees above normal. This is the 4th warmest start ever for the month of April in Columbia.
April 2002 was the warmest on record with an average tempreature of 68.97 degrees for the entire month. The temperature reached over 90 degrees only 4 times during that month, however.
The pollen index for Saluda area has been hi to very high since April 1. The pollen is so thick, everything is coated yellow. Almost everybody agrees it is worst they remember. Linda just washed this car day before.

Winter 2009 - 2010Weather this winter can only be described as extremely different. Here in Saluda my yard area has been like a swamp for at least 2 months from constant rain. We have had 2 heavy snow storms (but beautiful fluffy snow each time) and very cold nights.
Tonight the forecast low is 26 degrees; after that at least through next Sun (Mar 14) the lowest is suppose to be 38 degrees. Starting Wed (3/10) showers are forecast for 4 straight days!
Wednesday, April 8, 2009
Near freeze with frost warningsPast 2 night well below the frost point. Had warnings both nights. I think everything survived; unless the forecast are completely wrong should have had last freeze. I hope.
Thursday, June 5, 2008

Monday, April 28, 2008
RAIN! RAIN!!Yesterday and last night it has literally flooded. I don't know what the official figure is but Linda says it is suppose to be around 4 inches before it is all over today. I still have about a tray of plants to put out but the ones that I have planted surely are watered in nowl
