Weather Forecast for Greensboro

There’s consensus within the weather outlook for Greensboro would be an enormous understatement – from Tuesday to Sunday, the tag is ‘scattered thunderstorms’ each and every day! While trying to precisely predict the timing and ferocity of a thunderstorm is a waste of time, what we will say with some certainty is that it will rain sooner or later in Greensboro this week, which will help to slow the Bermuda greens down even further.

It’s warm – 86-89°F is that the likely spread of temperatures, however, there’s probably not going to be a lot of sun around, and the breeze speeds look set to be around the 7-9 mph mark.
