Weather Report: April 21, 2012

It’s a stormy and warm weekend here on Edisto, but the sun is coming.

Tonight will continue to be rainy or stormy. Some of the storms could even be severe. If you’re visiting this week and have a view of the beach from your house, check out the ocean during the storms. Watch as the waves get larger and pound against the shore. Just make sure to stay indoors if there is lightning.

The low for tonight will be 65 degrees.

The showers and thunderstorms will probably hang around Sunday, but could give way to some sun here and there. The high Sunday will be 70 degrees with a low of 51 degrees.

By Monday, the sun will be shining all day long and the high will be in the upper 60s with a low down around 50 degrees.

The cooler spring temperatures will remain along with the sun on Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the upper 60s and lows right around 50 degrees.

Clouds could roll in on Thursday, but it will be warm with a high in the 80s and lows in the lower 60s.

Storms might be in the area on Friday and the warmth of Thursday will lessen by Friday with a high of just 73 degrees and a low of 62 degrees.

Now that April is on its way out, the water is also getting warmer and warmer by the day. It’s now hovering at around 70 degrees – still chilly for most, but definitely on its way to becoming the warm water we all know and love during the summer months.

If you’re visiting Edisto this week, take advantage of the bright sunny days of the early week and go out for a kayak trip.

The gentle creeks make kayaking easy even for beginners. Guided tours are available as well as independent trips through the creeks.

Depending on one’s path through the creek, some historical sites can be seen from the water. The Shell Midden left over from the Oristo Indians is visible right off of Big Bay Creek.

Or travel down creeks and see abandoned fish shacks for decades and even centuries ago. The ruins of old plantations also can be seen and give the adventurous a look back into the old south.
