Masters Weather Forecast 2019

Sunday 14th April

Sunday is very much looking like it could be a bit of an issue.30% chance for morning showers and isolated thunderstorms. 80% chance for thunderstorms after 4PM. Heavy rain and strong winds are possible. Scattered thunderstorms are expected as humidity rises slightly. With rain and winds perhaps at their freshest with possible gusts of 25 mph means that it could be a lively final round! And could even mean we are looking at a Monday finish! Or they may try and start the final round a little earlier than usual…

The Masters has not had a Monday finish since 2983 when Seve won his second Green Jacket.
