High pressure will settle in across the Ohio Valley and Mid Atlantic today bringing splendid weather for the third round of the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club near Philadelphia. Temperatures will be warming back up into the 80s this afternoon. Sky will be bright and full of sunshine with winds out of the northwest between 5 and 10 mph.
The next weather concern for the U.S. Open will be late in the day Sunday afternoon and evening. The high pressure that brought nice weather Saturday will slide out over the Atlantic allowing the next system to spread showers and storms Sunday afternoon.
Showers and storms are possible during the afternoon especially after 3 p.m. EDT. If storms do fire then this could cause problems for the final groups and holes of the 2013 U.S. Open.
