COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina’s short sleeves and flip-flops Christmas Eve includes several record highs for the day.

By noon, Columbia was at 77 degrees, breaking the record of 76. Charleston was at 78 degrees, breaking the record of 76. Florence had already hit 77 degrees on Christmas Eve, breaking the record of 76.

Greenville was at 70 degrees, not far from the record of 71 degrees even with heavy rain in the area.

It isn’t getting cooler anytime soon. Temperatures across the state will stay in the 60s overnight, and could approach 80 in the Midlands and along the coast on Christmas Day.
