New Year’s Eve Weather Report

Perhaps Bono was referring to Edisto’s winter weather in the 1983-U2 hit “New Year’s Day.” Whippersnappers and anyone else not hip to the ’80s music scene might not remember the song, but the lyric that bears mentioning is this “nothing changes on New Year’s Day.”

The winter season has officially been upon us for more than a week now, but the temperatures are still in the 50s and 60s as they have been for much of November and December. With January on the horizon, it doesn’t appear as though that pattern will change.

The high for the last day of 2012 should be right around 60 degrees with a low of 46 degrees. There is a 10 percent chance of rain and skies should be partly cloudy. Temperatures will warm slightly on New Year’s Day with a high of 64 degrees and a low of 53 degrees. There is a 20 percent chance of rain. Skies will be partly cloudy throughout the day.

Temperatures will drop slightly Wednesday as a storm front moves in. The high should be around 56 degrees with a low of 46 degrees. There is a 20 percent chance of rain and skies will be mostly cloudy. Rain will move into the area on Thursday and temperatures will drop to 50 degrees with a low of 40 degrees.

The rain will continue Friday, but should not be as heavy. The high Friday should be in the low 50s with a low in the high 30s.

By the time the weekend rolls around expect sunny skies and highs in the upper 50s.

If you’re visiting Edisto for New Year’s Day, remember that fireworks are illegal in the town of the beach, but you might be able to spot some off in the distance. Check out some of the area bars like Whaley’s, Dockside, The Thirsty Fish, or the Pavilion for some cocktails as the New Year rings in.
