Weather Report: September 29, 2012

If you’re in the area today, be sure to stop by the second annual Edisto Shrimp Festival down at Bay Creek Park.

The festival pays respect to the fishing industry and highlights how that industry has impacted Edisto. There will be food, drinks, arts and crafts vendors, and dogs up for adoption at the event, which will run from noon to 5 p.m.

The cooler weather we’ve been experiencing won’t be on hand though this week (or the rest of the week), so you’ll definitely want to dress accordingly. According to the National Weather Service, the high today should be around 86 degrees with a chance for some isolated thunderstorms. So it is sure to be muggy out there at the Shrimp Fest, but at least it will give visitors a nice taste of summer once again.

The warmer weather will last throughout Thursday as temperatures hover around 83 degrees for the high and in the upper 60s to low 70s at night. A 30 percent chance of rain will threaten each day, but any precipitation that could fall on the area will generally be light and short lived.

Dry fall weather will return to the area Friday and through the weekend with highs in the upper 70s and lows in the low 60s.

Take advantage of the amazing weather and trek out to one of the trails at the state park located right off of Highway 174. This is the perfect time of year to walk around the island and experience the beauty of the maritime forest. It’s also possible to spot a deer (or several) in the woods especially during the twilight hours.

Remember that Loggerhead nests can still be found on the beach this time of year, so be sure to keep lights off on front beach so that the hatchlings don’t lose their way.
