A late season freeze struck several places across South Carolina, but the freezing temperatures lasted only an hour or two, lessening the threat to crops.

Temperatures dipped to 32 or below in seven of South Carolina's 17 official reporting stations this morning, including 29 degrees at Rock Hill and McEntire Joint National Guard Base east of Columbia.

Other sites that fell to freezing or below by 8 a.m. were Anderson, Columbia's airport, Florence, Orangeburg and Sumter.

Temperatures will quickly warm, reaching the 60s by this afternoon. The National Weather Service says there isn't another chance for a freeze in the next seven days.
