COLUMBIA, S.C. — Post-Tropical Storm Nestor's rains have come to an end throughout the Midlands, but the storm did bring some much-needed rain to our area, which is struggling through a drought.
What remains of the storm finished moving through the state early Sunday morning. At one point before it made landfall, Nestor was a tropical storm with 60 MPH winds, but the storm has weakened dramatically since then and has lost its tropical characteristics.
The heaviest rain happened Saturday night into early Sunday morning. We did not see severe weather from the storm.
The cloud cover will continue to clear throughout the day, and we should see some sunshine. We're looking for a high of 76.
On Monday it will be mostly sunny, but we'll have another chance of a few storms by Tuesday.
Tropical systems occurring in mid to late October are not uncommon. Hurricane season does not officially end until November 30.
