Weather Report: January 9, 2012

It’s winter on Edisto Beach, but tell that to the forecast.

Today’s high of around 70 seems more like spring than early January, but nobody’s complaining. There’s a 30% chance of rain, but something tells me it will blow out to sea and leave the beach dry and sunny. Tonight temps will drop down into the 50s, so if your house has a fireplace or at the very least some snuggly blankets, it’s the perfect time to open the windows for the cool breeze and hide out under covers.

Tomorrow the weather will be much like it is today, but cloudy with a 20% chance of rain showers.

Wednesday’s the day to stay indoors. The forecast calls for a chance of severe thunderstorms midweek which means the palm fronds will be slapping up against the houses and lightning will illuminate the shore. It’s all something to see from a safe distance so drag the rockers out onto the porch and watch the storm. The high for Wednesday is 66, but it will get down into the 40s after the storm.

Thursday will be another cloudy day with highs in the upper 60s and lows in the 40s. There’s only a 10% chance of rain so don’t let the cold weather keep you off the beach or from exploring the island.

Friday is forecasted to be the coldest day of the week with highs in the upper 50s and lows just around freezing. However, it should be a perfectly sunny day.

Visiting Edisto this week? Take advantage of the sunny skies and warm temps and drive down Yacht Club Road (right off of Palmetto Boulevard about two blocks before the marina) and park where the road dead ends.

Walk to the beach via the beach access point and explore the bottommost tip of the beach. The sand is flat and soft and during low tide much of the beach is uncovered making it a hotspot for shells and sharks teeth. Also go down just about an hour before sunset and watch the dolphin pods swim, play, and feed. Stay for awhile and make a memory of the sun setting over the water.
