Whether you’re there in person to watch the stars battle the elements, or watching from the safety of your sofa, there is a rarely a time in sport that the weather forecast is discussed as much as Open week.

Last year, we were treated to heavy downpours throughout the weekend as Brian Harman expertly plotted his way around a sodden Hoylake to get his hands on the Claret Jug.

But that sort of weather is, thankfully, a rarity during The Open, with the wind being the biggest issue affecting the players as they work their way around the finest links in the land.

So what does Mother Nature have in store for us as the world’s best descend on South Ayrshire for the 152nd Open Championship at Royal Troon?

This is what the Met Office has to say…
