A Stormy Start... But What About the Rest of Summer?

1 hour ago

It was a stormy start to summer with a severe weather outbreak threatening the Palmetto state on the first night of summer.

An "enhanced risk" of severe thunderstorms was issued for two-thirds of the state on June 22 with multiple severe thunderstorm warnings across the state. Another round of severe weather threatened the state last weekend and then on June 24 for the Piedmont.

As June is winding down, the 7-Day rainfall forecast from the National Weather Service Weather Prediction Center is showing generally dry conditions.

However, the Three-Month Outlook from NOAA's Climate Prediction Center indicate that South Carolina along with the rest of the Eastern Seaboard will have above normal temperatures with well above normal temperatures in south Florida and the Pacific Northwest. Well below average temperatures are expected in the Plains states.
