Storms in the forecast late

BETHESDA, Md. – Overcast skies and the threat of rain haven’t deterred the fans from coming out to Congressional on Father’s Day for the chance to potentially see history made.

There should be a break in the cloud cover by 2-3 p.m. as temperatures rise into the low 80s. But a large area of showers and thunderstorms moving east from Indiana and Kentucky is expected to impact the area in the late afternoon.

Rory McIlroy and Y.E. Yang teeing off at 3:30 p.m. and aren’t expected to finish until after 7 p.m. So there likely will be eyes to the skies on the back nine as the chance of thunderstorms increases to 50 percent.

Of course, there was a similar forecast on Saturday and Mother Nature cooperated. So keep your fingers crossed.
