A Winter Anomaly: South Carolina Now The Only State in America Without Snowfall in 2024


South Carolina is now officially the only state in the U.S. yet to experience snowfall this year – even considering Hawaii’s volcanic peaks and the Florida panhandle, which have both already seen snow in 2024.

According to the National Weather Service, our state last witnessed snow on January 16, 2022, and is now on the verge of setting a new record for the longest period without snowfall. Should this winter conclude without any snow, South Carolina will face an unprecedented scenario of consecutive winters without snow for the first time.

The weather forecast suggests a continuation of above-average temperatures into March, with some days expected to reach near 70 degrees. Although there remains a slim possibility of snow, the likelihood diminishes as we move further into March, with rising sun angles and a significant increase in temperatures reducing the chances of any late-season snow events.
