jholleman@thestate.comFebruary 18, 2013 

— Some of the coldest temperatures of the season were registered in the Midlands Monday morning.

The typically coolest spots among National Weather Service volunteer observers made it to the teens — 18 in Cedar Creek and Pelion, and 19 in Winnsboro.

The official temperature at Columbia Metropolitan Airport was 23, and it was 26 at Hamilton-Owens Airport in downtown Columbia. That’s the second coldest day in Columbia — it hit 22 on Feb. 2 — and only the second low below 25 this winter.

A warming trend will have high temperatures in the 50s and lows in the 30s.
