Weather in December

December is the beginning of the winter season in South Carolina with moderate rainfall between 3" (76mm) to 4" (102mm). The average high temperatures are in the mild 46°F (7.8°C) to 60°F (15.6°C) range, while the average low temperatures are between a cold 29°F (-1.7°C) to 39°F (3.9°C).
Snowfall is moderate in the Midlands and Upstate regions and light elsewhere. The days receive up to 7 hours of sunlight even in the coldest season in much of the state. Cold fronts occasionally travel to the interior, but temperatures rarely drop to extreme levels for extended periods. Snowstorms are rare, but even minor snowfall is enough to stall everyday life.
Log cabins are popular in the mountains and offer comfort and scenic views of the valleys below. A jacket or sweater is generally sufficient for people used to cold conditions. Snowbirds from the north migrate to the south in search of warm weather. Expect temperatures to drop steadily with each passing day in December in South Carolina.
