    Not true. They actually said the opposite.

    1/30-2/2 event

    Why does someone in Orangeburg get to start a thread about a snow event?

    Is there such a thing as sustainable cold in the south?

    2018 Year End Stats

    Interesting rain totals from Walhalla State Fish Hatchery in Oconee County. http://digital.olivesoftware.com/Olive/ODN/PostCourier/TranslateArticle.aspx?doc=POCO%2F2019%2F01%2F03&entity=ar00305&ts=20190103063911&uq=20181102125203 Corner of SC received 10 feet of rain last year BY BO PETERSEN [email protected] 2018 might not have been the rainiest year in Charleston, but a year of downpours left a possible record in a corner of South Carolina. More than 123 inches — 10 feet — fell at the Walhalla State Fish Hatchery near Lake Jocassee, according to preliminary data by the National Weather Service office in Greenville. That would be more rain than ever fell in the state at a station of record. Weather Service personnel could not comment on the possible record Wednesday because of the federal shutdown. The former record apparently was a little more than 119 inches, recorded at Hogback Mountain near the state line with North Carolina, north of Landrum, according to Melissa Griffin, the assistant state climatologist. A federal committee will review the Jocassee data and, if approved, it becomes the new record, she said in a tweet. In Charleston, the official rainfall for the year was 57.69 inches, well short of the 78.89 inches record set in the flood year of 2015. The mountains tend to be the rainiest part of the state, with an average 70 to 80 inches falling year to year, according to the S.C. Climate Office. Caesars Head is the rainiest spot, with an average of nearly 80 inches. In the coastal plain, the average is 50 to 52 inches, so 2018 was a rainier year.

    December 8-10 Winter Storm Obs

    Local Mets saying future radar shows snow in the Upstate tonight around 9:00. Temps need to drop drastically for that to happen.

    Don’t feel bad for the Upstate. It was a good storm especially for early December. Greenville County has 2 to 10 inches of snow and sleet. I ended with 6 inches at my house. I’ll take that kind of snow storm any day of the winter!

    5” snow now reduced to 4.5” because of the sleet.
