NEWS: Erratic Weather Could Be Major Factor at Masters

The Masters has been contested in all kinds of weather, but we haven’t seen many forecasts quite like this one.

According to, thunderstorms, sunshine, brisk temperatures and scorching hot days are all on tap for this week at Augusta National.

First, Monday appears to be headed for some afternoon storms and high humidity. Tuesday, however, is expected to be incredibly warm and dry with a high of 88 degrees.

The Par-3 Contest on Wednesday looks to be in jeopardy as precipitation is a relative certainty.

The first two days of the tournament are forecast to be cold — at least for those in the South — and blustery. The high is no more than 65 degrees on those two days with winds expected to be more than 20 mph. We’ve seen conditions like this in the past like when Zach Johnson won the 2007 Masters in unusually cold temperatures.

However, Saturday and Sunday are on track to be beautiful with sunshine, little wind and comfortable temperatures.

In short, if you’re going to The Masters, wear layers and be prepared for anything to happen.

Stay tuned to all week long as we cover The Masters.
