There Was a Drought in South Carolina?

Whether you know it or not, there has been a drought plaguing South Carolina for about three years now. But, there's good news...the South Carolina drought is officially OVER! Officials say much of South Carolina received 150% to 300% of normal rainfall over the past 30 to 60 days, which was just enough to get our state out of its dry, well…state.

"The current El Nino pattern has established an active, productive storm track over the southern U.S. that will continue to deliver rainfall events to South Carolina every four to five days," said State Climatology Office Severe Weather Liaison, Mark Malsick. "The long range computer models continue to advertise this wet early winter trend through January."
