Weather should not be a problem this week and weekend at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Gullane, Scottland, for the 2013 British Open. High pressure will dominate the United Kingdom for the rest of the week and into the weekend. This means mostly sunny skies and relatively light winds. There could be times of fog and mist, especially during the morning rounds, but most of the time the weather will be dominated with sunshine and warm temperatures.
THURSDAY - OPENING ROUND WEATHER FORECAST
For the morning pairings, temperatures will be in the low 60s, with winds out of the west between 10 and 20 mph. By the afternoon the any fog and mist will lift and give way to mostly sunny skies, temperatures warming into the upper 70s. Winds in the afternoon will remain out of the west between 10 and 15 mph with occasional gusts of 20 to 25 mph.
FRIDAY - SECOND ROUND WEATHER FORECAST
Morning temperatures will be in the upper 50s to low 60s on Friday. Skies will be mostly to partly sunny with a northeast wind in the morning becoming easterly in the afternoon between 5 and 15 mph. Afternoon temperatures will be in the low 70s.
SATURDAY - THIRD ROUND WEATHER FORECAST
Similar to Friday's weather but with a chance of morning fog and drizzle, temperatures in the morning in the mid 50s, but warming into the low 70s by the afternoon. Once any fog and mist lift the skies will be partly sunny in the afternoon. Winds will remain out of the east between 5 to 15 mph.
SUNDAY - FINAL ROUND WEATHER FORECAST
More clouds are expected on Sunday with cooler temperatures. Morning starts off with temperatures in the mid 50s, but warming only to the mid to upper 60s by the afternoon. Could see some morning fog or drizzle but most of the time will be dry. Mostly to partly cloudy skies and winds will be out of the ENE between 10 to 20 mph.
