Is it just me or does it seem like the tropics have become extremely active as of late? Figures, it’s WORLD AM time. Praying for NICE weather as this will be my third event and the weather was a factor in my first two…uugghh!!

Fiona at this time looks weak and will likely decrease to a remnant low. Gaston looks to recurve and will likely be a fish storm (what we meteorologists call a hurricane that stays over the ocean). The one to watch will be the system east of the Lesser Antilles. The models do look interesting for the first part of next week, especially the European ensembles. Still a week out so a lot can change, but it needs to be watched.August 23, 2016 at 7:59 am #36228Scott PorterParticipant
It wont be the first time the WA has played in the rain. That is why you take plenty of rain gear, extra shoes and a upbeat attitude.August 23, 2016 at 8:41 am #36233Phil IngleburgerParticipant
There was a hurricane named Gaston that came ashore about 70 miles south of Myrtle in 2004 when I was there for the first time. I hope this stays away. 🙂August 23, 2016 at 2:18 pm #36269jim mcdanielParticipant
We drove thru the heart of Gaston and when it cleared out it was a beautiful week weather wise. The aftermath is always nice. Played in the middle of tropical storm Ernesto. My best round of the week. Played in the heat, rain and wind. Still the best time in golf ever.August 23, 2016 at 3:28 pm #36271Rick KimbrellParticipant
Amen Jim McDaniel…I totally agree on both Gaston and Ernesto. I have had some really interesting rounds in MB in tropical weather.
