System Brings Some Severe Weather, Mostly Rain

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - A cold front brought some severe weather but mostly wind and rain to the Midlands Wednesday night.

The storms began rolling into the area just before 7 p.m. The worst of the weather was in the northern Midlands (Newberry, Fairfield, and Kershaw Counties), but by about 10 p.m, the threat of severe storms had diminished.

There were reports of at least quarter sized hail in parts of Newberry County, and some trees came down in Fairfield County. 

Some warnings were issued for the area, but those are now over. (For the latest alerts, check the News19 Severe Weather Page.)

Before the system arrived, there has been a lot of heating. We set an all-time high for this date in history of 84 degrees, breaking the old mark of 83.

The clouds will move out Thursday morning and cooler air will filter in. High temperatures Thursday will be in the middle 60s.

Over the next several days, we'll see relatively warm temperatures in the afternoon, but the morning will be a different story. On Saturday and Sunday, the low will flirt with the freezing line, and we could even see a frost.
