2017 US Open weather forecast calls for some rain, some wind at Erin Hills


The 2017 US Open weather forecast looks to include the chance of rain falling at Erin Hills Golf Course in Hartford, Wis., on Thursday and Friday.

The general weather forecast calls for winds around 10 mph each day of the championship -- almost negligible. Temperatures will be in the low- to mid-80s throughout the week, with the rain chances going down on the weekend to almost zero.

The important thing to note is that the winds appear to be consistent each day, meaning it's unlikely the players will be surprised by what they face.
