Was wondering when the last time it snowed in Aiken? How much did it
snow and how long did it last?

Columbia has slightly more snow than Aiken, on average so I will try to answer this question for you. We usually have at least a dusting of snow every winter with an accumulating snow every 2-3 winters. We probably have a 4+ inch snowfall, on average, twice a decade and 6" or more, on average, once a decade. I'm including snow and sleet in these amounts. I've lived here for almost 35 years and I can only think of 3 or 4 storms during that time where the snow remained on the ground longer than 3 days. We get just enough to get an occasional taste, but not enough anyone could ever get tired of it. Aiken would be similar.

In Aiken, you can go 5-6 years without seeing even a dusting of snow. I recall one good snow over the last 10 years and maybe a couple light snows. Most years you will never see ANY snow and columbia does get a little more than Aiken. Greenville and Spartanburg would be the cities that average a little snow each year. In simpsonville we had about 5" in one snow this year.

Yeah, if you're looking for snow you'll want to head farther upstate...although you still wouldn't find too much. A few years ago it snowed enough that I rolled a snowball up passed my waist.

It usually ends up being slush or ice, anywhere in SC.

Aiken always seems to be JUST southeast enough to avoid any snow. The last big snow we had was in 2001 and we got about 4 inches. It was beautiful but of course we all went nutty since we never get to see it that often! In my 27 years in Aiken I can remember maybe 5-6 good snows, but that's about it.

We saw snow once in 9 years BUT did have a pretty bad ice storm that kept the kids out of school for several days about 4 years ago.

I lived in Augusta for about 5 yrs. It seems like our area (Augusta/N. Augusta/Aiken) would get a dusting of snow every year. The temps do get subfreezing - I know because I try to golf all year round - and there are days where I can't b/c of the cold temps.
