The PGA event in Charlotte celebrates it’s 10th year at Quail Hollow next week. It has gone through 3 name changes thanks to the acquisition of Wachovia by Wells Fargo. For the 1st 7 years of the tournament it was the Wachovia Championship. Then for one year it was just called the Quail Hollow championship then renamed to the Wells Fargo Championship the past 2 years.

The weather this time of year can be all over the place. In 2012 we almost had the warmest tournament on record as all 4 rounds where in the 80s last year. The high last year for rounds 1-4 were, 88°,86°,87° and 80°. That Sunday cool down kept it below the hot tournament of 2004 but only barely, last years average high was 85° compared to the 86° in 2004.

Another calling card of this tournament is rain. We seem to always have at least some rain at some point over the 4 days. Last year was dry with only a trace on May 5th but the only year with 0.00” remains as 2008 over the 4 rounds of the tournament.

    There is a good chance we could break the coldest morning low for the tournament. The current record is 42° on the morning of the 3rd round in 2005. I am forecasting 38° tomorrow morning for the start of the first round. @wxbrad

    I've updated the temperatures to reflect the 38° from this morning which now makes it the coldest overnight low in tournament history.
