The Masters Weather Forecast 2021

Last year’s Masters had to be held in November due to coronavirus. This year the tournament is back to its familiar April slot.

The colder weather in November did not play as much a factor to shot distance as some had anticipated in advance. It was unseasonably mild during the tournament. However the softer conditions aided low scoring with Dustin Johnson shooting record-breaking score.

Last November the first round was suspended almost as soon as it had begun. Only three groups had teed off before the hooter sounded to halt play due to heavy rain and predicted thunderstorms.

This year’s event has been up and down in terms of weather. On a tough first day the wind blew and made conditions very tough indeed whereas Friday was rather mundane.

On Saturday we had our first weather delay for about an hour or so after the threat of thunderstorms became too great to ignore.

After the delay Hideki Matsuyama shot a back-nine 30 to go into the final day with a four-shot lead and he will be hoping for easy conditions to help him try and win his first Green Jacket and first Major title.

So then let’s take a look at the weather for Sunday.

Sunday

It looks like there will be cloudy skies for the early starters on Sunday with temperatures in the 60s. A cold front is then forecast to move through Augusta at around midday/early afternoon which might produce a few showers.

After this passes through though, the cloudy skies and drier air will return and we are not expecting any thunderstorms because they are forecast to remain south and east of the golf course.

That being said the wind is expected to be 10-15mph for most of the day and then there will be higher gusts of 18-23mph in the afternoon which could cause havoc as the leaders get onto the back nine.

Chance of rain: 20%. High 80F. Winds SW shifting to W 10-15mph, Gusts 18-23mph from 1pm
