Severe Weather Alerts in South CarolinaSouth Carolina Frequent Weather Alerts:
Severe thunderstorms, tropical storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods

South Carolina has several instances of severe weather, and when it doesn’t it mostly has hot summers and relatively warm winters. Heavy rainfall appears in the state throughout the year, mostly due to tropical cyclones and large thunderstorms.

Tropical cyclones, which often form in the Atlantic Ocean, will move up the coast and often bring heavy rain to South Carolina. This can happen from August to October, and the cyclones can easily become hurricanes. The hurricanes can come ashore and batter the coastline with floods, damaging winds, and heavy rainfall.

Hurricanes are the most dangerous forms of severe weather for those in South Carolina, with many hurricanes and tropical storms moving up the coastline or even inland, blanketing the entire state in storms and high winds.

Thunderstorms are also very common across the state, with averages being around 64 thunderstorm days in a year. Tornadoes can also happen, most of them around the lower levels of strength and there is an average of 14 in a year.

So South Carolina has a bit of everything in terms of weather, but it also boasts a good temperature range depending on where you live in the state. If you stay connected to the weather alert forecasts and prepare for the hurricane season it can be a really nice place to live.
