Less than a week after the worst winter storm South Carolina has seen in almost a decade, springlike weather is on the horizon.
By Tuesday, the National Weather Service predicts temperatures will top 60 degrees and by Thursday, could reach into the 70s – a welcome change for most over the arctic temperatures and back-to-back winter storms that kept emergency crews and utility companies scrambling the past two weeks.
The next few days will feature a number of community events that indicate that winter is on its way out, including the start of the Winthrop University baseball season and the playoffs for high school wrestling and basketball.
Rock Hill’s Come-See-Me festival will reveal its logo on Feb. 20 in anticipation of the annual event that will run April 3-12.
And on March 1, just two weeks away, it will be time for the Joy of Gardening Symposium at York Technical College’s Baxter Hood Center.
So while what’s left of the ice and snow might be creating a hassle for drivers and pedestrians, it won’t be long before everyone’s back to talking about warmer weather and the start of spring.
