Columbia â?? (WACH) It may be mid-May, but it`s felt more like March in the Midlands.

Unseasonably cool temps were the story Tuesday morning with a tied record low temperature of 44 degrees at Columbia Metropolitan Airport, and a new record low of 40 degrees in Augusta, GA at Bush Field.

Southwesterly winds will be in control Wednesday and you will notice that by the temperatures.
