The tour's meteorologist will be keeping a close eye on weather models throughout the day. His biggest concerns are the spectators and the players, who are walking around with clubs that could act as conductors. He says he provides officials with weather reports at least twice daily. Tomorrow he will likely be providing even more updates as severe storms carrying lightening, hail and even tornadoes are possible. He also has lightening equipment set up on the course that monitors the electric charge in the atmosphere.
"I can monitor the actual charge levels of lightning in the atmosphere," said PGA Tour On-Site Meteorologist Brad Nelson. "So, I can let those guys know exactly what the lightning threat is, and it's their decision on if they want to clear the course or what have you."
The meteorologist advises the Web.com Tour officials of any weather threats, but it's ultimately not his call to go into a weather delay. The Web.com Tour officials look at the information he provides them and make their own call accordingly.
