July 4th Forecast: The Weather Channel

WBT Editorial

With Summer in full swing and the Independence Celebrations on the horizon all eyes are turning towards the weather for this weekend.

Ray Stagich, WBT's Weather Channel Correspondent, gave us the rundown for the low pressure system heading towards the Carolina's...

Area of disturbed weather east of Jacksonville, FL being monitored for signs of tropical development. 80% chance of developing into a tropical depression in the week ahead. This will help to enhance shower and thunderstorm chances across the Carolina's regardless of development. Most forecast guidance brings some sort of area of low pressure up the coast in time for the holiday weekend....Best advice now, especially if you have beach plans this weekend, is to STAY TUNED.

 

Here's what the current weather forecast looks like for the week, but keep up with WBT's Operation Storm Watch all week for the most up-to-date information on this tropical depression:


Tuesday
| July 1st

Partly cloudy skies. A stray afternoon thunderstorm is possible. High 93F. Winds SSW at 5 to 10 mph.

 

Wednesday | July 2nd

Isolated thunderstorms. Highs in the low 90s and lows in the low 70s. 

 

 Thursday | July 3rd

A few thunderstorms possible. Highs in the low 90s and lows in the low 70s. 

 

 Friday | July 4th

A few thunderstorms possible. Highs in the upper 80s and lows in the upper 60s.

  • Hard to Say Thank You for Saving This Child

    I owe our governor a positive column on CBD oil. Here it is: “Pat McCrory signed a bill last week that allows certain seriously ill children in North Carolina to be given CBD oil. Many families are relieved. The end.” That’s all the positivity I can muster. Read More
  • At the Beach, a Different Look at Trump

    The last news swirling before leaving for the beach was, “Donald Trump Leads in North Carolina.” The poll had him at 16 percent, followed by two of the other candidates at 12, then the rest. Trump, the “tallest of the midgets,” as some would say, disparaging midgets more than the rest of the Republican field. The candidates are generally all midgets Read More

  • 2015 Training Camp Preview

    Carolina Panthers Training Camp is off and rolling for a 21st season in Spartanburg.  Camp opens Friday, July 31 with the Kickoff Party and the team will practice from 6:30-8:30 pm at Gibbs Stadium at Wofford College.  One week into the Panthers' stay at Wofford, the team will return to Charlotte for Fan Fest at Bank of America Stadium on Friday, August 7. 

    Following the first preseason game against the Buffalo Bills on August 14, the Panthers will wrap up training camp with joint practices with the Miami Dolphins on August 19 and 20. The two teams will play each other at Bank of America Stadium in Week 2 of the preseason on August 22.

    Sharon Thorsland and myself will be making the trek back and forth down I-85 to bring you the latest interviews and information on WBT and wbt.com.  For the preseason games, Mick Mixon will again be broadcasting on the TV side with Mike Rucker and Jordan Gross.  On WBT, I will handle the play-by-play with Eugene Robinson.  Sharon will do sideline reports for the two home games, with Greg Brannon and Mike Craft on the road games. 

    Top two rookie draft picks Shaq Thompson and Devin Funchess should get plenty of media attention.  Another spotlight will be on new starting LT Michael Oher, who replaces Byron Bell.  Defensively, the Panthers will be looking for somebody to step up and take the reigns at DE opposite Charles Johnson.

    Here is the complete list of training camp practices in Spartanburg, subject to change based on weather, coach decision, etc.  All practices at Wofford are free and open to the public.  If you are looking for a place to eat, I highly recommend Wade's and Ike's which are both locally owned and within minutes of the practice fields.

      It's deja vu for the Panthers, who for the second time this season will take on Tampa Bay without their starting quarterback.  The Panthers welcome the Bucs to Bank of America Stadium Sunday in what has become a key NFC South matchup.  Last week's win over New Orleans vaulted the Panthers back into the mix for the division title, while the Bucs fell to 2-11 on the year after a 34-17 loss to the Lions last week.
