Masters weather forecast: Saturday predicts plenty of rain for third round

AUGUSTA, Ga. – It’s been no secret all week that Saturday could be a trouble day at Augusta National. That fact hasn’t changed.

After two days of smooth rounds with no hint of poor weather, the Masters will likely see some rougher conditions for Saturday’s third round.

The temperatures will cool into the 60s during the third round, and rain is likely to be present for swaths of the day.

A weather update Saturday indicates that the morning is likely to bring lighter rain and showers. But the afternoon is anticipated to offer some heavy rainfall with a significant chance of thunderstorms. Wind is also anticipated to be a factor, with breezes gusting up to 20 mph in the afternoon.

So conditions may get uncomfortable, and delays in action could certainly be in play – although hopefully not.

Here’s a look at the current Saturday weather synopsis:

It’ll be an entertaining Masters weekend no matter what. And the conditions add even more intrigue to Saturday.

We’ll see soon if they cause any disruption.
