The WEZL Morning Crew issues a challenge, Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Josh Marthers accepts

Josh's Thanksgiving Day Forecast Josh's Thanksgiving Day Forecast

T.J. Phillips, Ric Rush, and Ashleigh The Web Goddess from WEZL issued a challenge Wednesday on the air, and Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Josh Marthers officially accepted Thursday morning on News 2 Today.

T.J. and the WEZL Morning Crew asserted there is no way Josh's prediction of dry weather and cold temperatures could be accurate this far in advance and issued a challenge to the News 2 Today prognosticator.

"Long range forecasting can be subject to huge swings," said Marthers, "but this is all in good fun."

On Thursday's edition of News 2 Today, Josh forecasted a high temperature of 51 degrees for Thanksgiving Day with dry conditions.

If the weather is dry, and Josh's forecast high verifies within three degrees of the actual high temperature, T.J Phillips will relinquish his seat for a day allowing Josh to guest host the WEZL morning show.  If Josh's forecast does not verify, T.J. will deliver the weather on News 2 Today for a day.

"The odds of this working out in my favor are pretty slim, but hey, I'm never one to back down," added Marthers.

Let the challenge begin!

Bristow wrote the bill that's called the "Stone Bill," intended to lure Stone Brewing to the Palmetto State. They're a west coast brewery looking to expand on the east coast.
