Johnny Harris, Quail Hollow president, predicts which holes will have to be played well to win the PGA Championship.

There’s an 70 percent chance of rain in Charlotte Monday, and it will likely impact both rush hour traffic and PGA Championship events at Quail Hollow Club in south Charlotte.

National Weather Service predictions say showers are likely before 2 p.m., then become scattered through the afternoon.

“The potential exists for these storms to produce torrential rainfall. Some areas may experience multiple rounds of such storms, resulting in locally significant accumulation and possibly flash flooding,” says the National Weather Service.

“In addition, a few of the storms could become severe with damaging down burst winds the main threat.”

It will be warm, too, with a high near 85.

Tonight, more scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected, but chances drop to 50 percent.
