Stormy weather is expected this weekend and throughout the week on Edisto Beach. That’s not the best news for all the people that poured onto the island Friday (and gathered at the Piggly Wiggly to stock up on groceries).
Isolated storms might crop up today along with a 30 percent chance of rain. The high for today should be right around 80 degrees with a low of 71 degrees.
Temperatures will drop slightly Sunday and Monday to the high 70s. Scattered storms are expected for both days. There is a 50 percent chance of rain Sunday and Monday.
Isolated storms and clouds will pop in and out of the area throughout the rest of the week. The highs will hover right around 80 while lows will remain in the 70s. There is a 30-40 percent chance of rain throughout the week.
If you’re in the area this weekend, check out the Legacy Live Oak Dedication and Conservation Celebration from 3-5 p.m. Sunday at Indigo Hill Farms located on Highway 174. This event is sponsored by the Edisto Island Open Land Trust.
Each year the EIOLT invites individuals to dedicate (with a $500 contribution) a Live Oak along Highway 174 to honor a loved one. The goal behind the dedication is not only to honor loved ones, but to restore the many live oaks that used to be plentiful in the area.
Since the program began more than 100 trees have been planted along the scenic byway between the Dawhoo Bridge and Russell Creek. The trees are maintained by a landscaper so that they thrive after being planted.
