2017 Masters weather forecast shows plenty of wind at Augusta National


The 2017 Masters weather forecast looks to include the chance of a lot of rain falling at Augusta National Golf Club, and the updated forecast for the week calls for higher winds during the first two days of the Tournament.

The general weather forecast originally called for a chance of rain each day. That's now changed to a 100 percent chance of rain for Wednesday, with strong storms potentially knocking out the Par-3 Contest for the first time in its history.

The important thing to note is that the winds appear most substantial during the opening two rounds, with the forecast for the weekend rounds looking pretty good.
