My fiancé and I have a trip planned for October (6-11). I was wondering how the weather is that time of year.
The published average daytime high is 73 degrees for October, and the same (73) for water temp. Warmer early and cooler later in the month.
Consider purchasing trip insurance, the SC coast has had weather 'events' in October for the last 3 years (1,000 year flood, Hurricane Matthew and Hurricane/Tropical Storm Irma).
