2014 US Open Likely Dry for Final Rounds

While it remains hot and humid for Saturday and Sunday's rounds in Pinehurst, North Carolina, much of the wet weather should stay away from the course.

There will be a mix of clouds and sunshine for the majority of the daytime, but late in the afternoon and for the evening, thunderstorms will be firing across the Southeast, while severe storms erupt in the Plains Saturday.

As AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Matt Rinde stated earlier this week, "A thunderstorm could pop up nearby during the afternoon on Saturday and Sunday, but they will likely stay south and east of Pinehurst."

Both days, temperatures will be rising near 90 degrees for the afternoon.

If showers and thunderstorms miss the course like they did during play of the first two rounds, players will be experiencing similar course conditions.

A brief shower moved through Thursday evening but for the most part, greens were dry. As AccuWeather.com Staff Writer Kevin Byrne reported, the course drains very well, keeping the greens firm.

Many dads will be tuning into coverage of the final round on Father's Day Sunday, but many others could be out and about, playing golf themselves. Check here for the national outdoor forecast this Father's Day.
