Georgia's Augusta National Golf Club is set to enjoy a decent weekend of Masters Tournament weather for the most part. For Thursday's first round, temperatures are forecasted to rise to 79 degrees Fahrenheit with clear skies and a 0 percent chance of rain. Doesn't get any better than that, unless you need an excuse for a terrible round by a player you have money on.
Friday's second round won't be quite as perfect, with a high of 83, a little bit of cloud cover, and an 18 percent chance of precipitation. Saturday could be unpleasant -- there's a 20 percent chance of an afternoon thunderstorm and a high of 85. The final round on Sunday remains just as warm, but should be drier.
Thursday's sunrise is scheduled for 7:09 am, just after gates open -- that's pretty much the same for all four days, so I'll just type it once if that's ok with you. Not much wind is expected during any of the tourney's four days, with winds reaching seven miles per hour at points on Friday.
