Weather at the PGA Championship

How will the conditions affect the PGA Championship? Here’s the latest forecast from Louisville…

 

Will the weather be kind to the mixture of PGA Tour and LIV Golf players, as well as the spectators, for the PGA Championship? Let’s take a look at the weather for the PGA Championship in 2024…

Weather at the PGA Championship

For the most part, the players in Louisville, Kentucky will look at the PGA Championship weather forecast and smile, but there could be one day of play that is delayed by inclement weather.

Thursday, the opening round, should remain uninterrupted. Accuweather says that it will be warm and pleasant with sunshine and patchy clouds. 80 degrees Fahrenheit adds up to just over 26 degrees Celsius.

Friday will also feature some cloud cover, but this is the day when we could see delays. A couple of showers and a thunderstorm are due, with an 88% chance of rain. But in both of the first two rounds, wind shouldn’t be a factor in protecting the golf course.

Saturday represents an improvement in conditions. A little below the temperature of Thursday, but there will be periods of both cloud and sun and less than a 20% chance of rainfall.

Sunday, the final round where we will see one player lift the Wanamaker Trophy at the second major of the year, will see the highest temperature of 82 degrees Fahrenheit, which creeps near to 28 degrees Celsius.

With a small chance of rain too, players and fans should be able to enjoy a major Sunday without any unwanted intervals.
