Rain is currently falling at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, N.Y., for Friday's second round of the PGA Championship.

In fact, there is still rain in Friday's PGA Championship weather forecast, but the key is just how much precipitation will fall and will it be enough force a delay in play on Friday afternoon.

A frost delay ahead of Thursday's first round has already set the tournament back a bit, forcing some players to finish their opening 18 early this morning.

And with a 100% chance of rain in Saturday's weather forecast, getting in as many holes as possible on Friday will be important to keep the tournament moving.

So with this in mind, let's take a look at the latest PGA Championship weather forecast, including just how much rain should be expected during Friday's second round.

PGA Championship Weather Forecast

According to the National Weather Service, rain could certainly impact play over the next few hours, though it is expected to taper off as the day progresses.

The hourly breakdown shows a 49% chance of rain at 3 p.m. ET, which then dips to 34% at 4 p.m. ET.

From there, rain becomes even more unlikely with a 24% chance at 5 p.m. ET and an even lower 20% chance at 6 p.m. ET.

While there are reasons to be optimistic for Friday, Saturday's weather forecast looks much uglier.

There's currently a 100% chance of rain with a storm possible before 3 p.m. ET, bringing lightning into play as well.

This system could also bring an additional quarter-inch of rain as well, making the conditions even sloppier at Oak Hill Country Club.
