AUGUSTA, Ga. – The weather should cooperate for at least another day at the Masters.
Friday’s forecast calls for a few early showers but then a mix of sun and clouds and only a 30-percent chance of a pop-up thunderstorm as the temperatures creep into the mid-80s. The wind should be lighter than in Thursday’s opening round, with only a steady 7 to 14 mph breeze, but the weekend could bring some interesting weather as a strong cold front approaches the Augusta area.
