The final two rounds of play at Augusta National should remain relatively clear this weekend, although rain Sunday afternoon could affect players with late tee times and bring out the umbrellas at the course.
This afternoon, however, promises to be sunny with a high near 79 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. Tonight should remain clear with a low near 50 degrees and wind at about 5 miles per hour, which will dissipate later in the evening.
Sunny skies also are forecast Sunday morning, but conditions could turn cloudy and wet in the afternoon with a chance of showers expected after 2 p.m. The chance of precipitation is about 30 percent, likely moving in late Sunday afternoon at about 4 to 5 p.m.
Sunday night is expected to be mostly cloudy with a low near 55 degrees. New precipitation amounts between a quarter- and a half-inch are possible.
An entire round at The Masters hasn't been completely lost to rain since 1983, when Spaniard Seve Ballesteros took home the green jacket after completing his final 18 on Monday.
When there is inclement weather, a weather warning sign that shows clouds and a lightning bolt is displayed on the scoreboards and message boards at Augusta National Golf Club. The club advises spectators to take precautions even before play is suspended. The sounding of an air horn or a similar alert will signal suspension of play.
