Almost a Foot of Rain has fallen in OC in May

It has been a very wet month of May in the Golden Corner of South Carolina. Official U.S. Weather Observer Barbara Wilson gives rainfall amounts from her station in Walhalla. “Saturday was fine, there was just a tad and Sunday like .23, but from 7am yesterday to 7am this morning over two inches, which will give us over eleven inches so far for May and we do expect more rain. The high yesterday was only 73 and the low was 68.” Rainfall amounts and temperature readings may differ where you live; Wilson recorded these figures from her weather station in Walhalla, which is about one-mile from the county seat. Wilson and her family, the Brandts, have been recording the weather from Walhalla for the National Weather Service for over 100 years. They are the longest active weather watchers and volunteer reporters for the National Weather Service.
