10.  Did you know…  That the hottest day ever recorded in Myrtle Beach was August 22, 1983, when the mercury reached 105 degrees, while the coldest day on record was January 21, 1985, with a low of four degrees?  For what it’s worth, October is historically one of the driest months of the year. 

Previous Did You Knows are available.
