Mike Davis and climatologist Corey Davis discuss the weather in North and South Carolina for the month of January. While the final numbers are not yet in, it appears that the overall temperatures for the month were fairly warm, with monthly averages two to four degrees above normal. The western parts of the states experienced more rainfall, with areas like Asheville and Greenville, South Carolina having their second wettest January on record, while eastern coastal areas like Charleston and Wilmington saw below normal rainfall. This contrast in rainfall has led to some areas being wetter than normal, while others have been drier. However, the drier areas are not at risk of slipping back into drought due to the previous month’s ample rainfall. Overall, the month of January has been characterized by warmer than normal temperatures and varying levels of rainfall across North and South Carolina.
