Severe weather occurs in South Carolina occasionally in the form of violent thunderstorms and tornadoes. Although less
frequent than surrounding states, thunderstorms are common in the summer months. The more violent storms generally
accompany squall lines and active
cold fronts of late-winter or spring. Strong thunderstorms usually bring high winds, hail,
considerable lightning, and rarely spawn a tornado. Quite often there's more to the sky than we think we already know.

Despite the landfall average of once in every four to five year, hurricanes and tropical storms are irregular visitors to coastal
South Carolina. In the period, 1901-1985, only 22 tropical cyclones (tropical storms or hurricanes) have made landfall on
the South Carolina coast. Of these, only eight were of Category 2 to Category 4 intensity.
