It's kind of hard to hit a golf ball in the pouring rain with high winds, right? You don't see a lot of golfers at the beginning of the Wizard of Oz, you know what I mean?

Thus, as we prepare for the 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, Minnesota this week, it's important to know what Mother Nature has in store.

As you're preparing your bet slip at WynnBET for the event, be sure to check out my preview, top picks, dark horse bets, power rankings, cut line projection, and score predictions, but keep the weather forecast in mind as well.

Blaine, Minnesota Weather for 2022 3M Open

Fair weather is excepted with moderate winds ranging from 7 MPH-13 MPH over the weekend.

When I checked yesterday, storms were expected on Saturday and Sunday. However, the chance of rain is decreasing, and it's more likely we see a light drizzle with cloudy skies instead of a full-blown storm.

At the least, we know Thursday's weather will be perfect. If things continue progressing the way they have over the last 24 hours, golfers may be in store for sensational weather all weekend. Though it's likely we'll at least see some light rain Saturday and Sunday.

Blaine, Minnesota Daily Weather Report

Thursday, July 21: Sunny with a high of 88 degrees Fahrenheit and nearly no chance of rain. High winds are expected between 13-19 MPH.

Friday, July 22: Partly cloudy with a high of 92 degrees Fahrenheit and a 19% chance of rain. Minimal winds expected between six and nine MPH.

Saturday, July 23: Partly cloudy with a high of 87 degrees Fahrenheit and 25% chance of rain. Thunderstorms are possible, and low winds between five and 10 MPH are expected.

Sunday, July 24: Similar to Saturday but a bit cooler with a high of 83 degrees Fahrenheit and 25% chance of rain. Thunderstorms are possible again with low winds ranging from five to seven MPH.

With that in mind, I'd expect golfers to get out to a hot start and we should see a low cut line. My prediction is -3, and if trends continue it should require a low score to win this weekend as well.

Keep an eye on weather updates though, because things could go awry if the chance of storms pops back up.
