LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- After four days of steam and sunshine, the weather at Valhalla is expected to take a dramatic turn Thursday night.
A line of storms is moving toward the Louisville area and rain will become likely after midnight, continuing throughout the second round of the 96th PGA Championship. Thunderstorms are in the forecast and the total accumulation is expected to be between three-quarters of an inch and an inch-and-a-half by Friday night.
The chance of rain on Friday is 80 percent with a high of 80. Saturday will be mostly cloudy with a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms and a high of 83.
Sunday's forecast only brings a 30 percent chance of rain into the picture. But it will be partly sunny and humid with a high of 85.
