Golf-ball hail was reported in Sun City earlier today; these reports weren’t far from where there are a lot of new car dealerships out along Highway 278. Ouch.
The Ravenel continues to be a rough ride this evening thanks to a tight pressure gradient between high pressure to the northeast and a stationary front (the front that’s cooled us off back to the upper 60s) to the south.
Gusts to 62 and 50 MPH recorded within the past hour on the Ravenel Bridge — still a really tough go of it up there.

Further proof that falling asleep in high school geography & social studies can come back to bite you, hard.
