Rain looks like it could be a factor at this week’s Masters Tournament in Augusta, Ga. according to early weather reports.

There’s no threat of rain between Sunday night and Thursday morning as the tournament returns to its normal April slot after playing the 2020 event in November. Instead, players can expect 80 and sunny as they arrive for practice rounds early in the week.

Thursday, which is when the first round begins, could see rain clouds make their way to the course.

With winds expected to be between 8-12 miles per hour, rain is a possibility in the afternoon. The probability as of Sunday night sits around 40 percent but either way it’s not a substantial amount that would create any delays.

Friday morning and afternoon is where there could be issues.

There’s a 57% chance of rain in the morning with thunderstorms possible in the afternoon. AccuWeather projects 2.5 hours of rain on Friday afternoon.

Winds up to 14 mph could hit Saturday on what’s hopefully an otherwise perfect day. But overnight showers reaching almost an inch could soften the course early on Sunday morning.

Sunday is expected to be sunny, mid-70s with gusts up to 17 mph.

As we all know, weather is subject to change especially as the days get closer. The Action Network will keep you updated on all Masters related coverage from the field, to the weather to the bets to make.
