The final round of the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club will take place on Sunday.
Bellerive Country Club previously hosted 2 major championships in its history: the PGA Championship in 1992 and the U.S. Open in 1965.
The fourth and final major of the 2018 PGA Tour season will have mainly hot and dry weather for the remainder of the tournament, which goes on through Sunday, Aug. 12.
“Spectators, staff and players should be sure to drink plenty of water this weekend in order to remain well hydrated in the heat, and should also wear lightweight clothing and sunblock to protect themselves from the August sunshine,” according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Courtney Travis.
Morning temperatures are forecast to climb quickly through the 70s and 80s. Afternoon temperatures are forecast to be within a few degrees of 90 in the afternoon. A normal high for this time of year in the area is 88 F.
As AccuWeather predicted, heavy thunderstorms developed over the course on Friday afternoon and forced play to be suspended, eventually for the remainder of the day.

Many players that were not able to complete their second round, and thus faced a grueling day on Saturday. Some players will have to both finish their second round on Saturday morning and also complete their third round later in the day.
Fortunately, Sunday should feature dry conditions, so additional weather-related delays are not anticipated.
Friday's rain could allow for more aggressive play this weekend.
"When course conditions soften up, it becomes easier for players to attack the pin since the ball will not roll as far after initial contact with the putting surface," AccuWeather Meteorologist Kyle Elliott said.
Elliott added that it becomes easier to hit fairways off the tee since the chance of getting erratic, unpredictable bounces becomes far less likely on a damp course.
