I've been planning a trip to Carowinds for the first time ever this summer. It'll likely be in July but I don't have a set date yet. I was reading up on summer weather in Charlotte and it's not a good prognosis. What's the likelihood on any given day we'd get rained out or stormed out in July?

Generally during summer in Charlotte it rains/storms in the afternoon as it heats up (when it does) and it's usually quick moving and lasts maybe 30 minutes. It's rarely an all day wash out, unless it's remnants of a tropical storm/hurricane from the Gulf or Atlantic. Of course there are always other exceptions since weather pretty much happens when it happens. Just pay attention to the forecast as close to when you're going to plan accordingly.

Pretty much close to every day because of the intense heat and the humidity here. pop up thunderstorms are the norm in the afternoon / evening hours but it's like for 5-10 mins. Either way the park never closes its gates nor the ride unless lighting is present; all rides remain in operation during rain fall.
^ It's too bad it has to go since it looks like a fun woodie, but I guess it's the only way for them to expand the water park. It is possible that I might be visiting Carowinds in July, so I might get a chance to ride it before it's history.

Here we go again. Interesting that they may get an RMC before the Point does...
