Weather Forecast For 146th British Open: Rain, Wind

The weather forecast for the 146th Open Championship at Royal Birkdale doesn’t look so great with temps in the mid 60s, coupled with windy overcast conditions all four days of play.

 
This certainly won’t be the worst championship weather-wise, but it won’t be great either. Thursday appears to be the best bet with some evening showers in the forecast and breezy winds reaching around 15 mph.

Friday’s second round looks to be a brutal day, with a 90% chance of rain, accompanied by strong winds topping off at 21-22 mph.

But then again, that’s what makes it The Open. As locals put it, “nae rain and nae wind then it’s nae golf.”
