COLUMBIA — Monday's high temperature of 77 degrees broke the previous record for day and tied the highest temperature ever recorded in Columbia during the month of January, according to the National Weather Service's website. Seventy-seven degrees was also recorded in 1950 and 1909. 

The high temperature was not the only record broken. Monday's minimum temperature of 54 degrees set at Columbia Regional Airport was a record high, surpassing the 51 degrees recorded in 1914, according to the website. 

While temperatures are expected to drop during the week and snow is predicted, weekend temperatures are expected to rise above average again.
