2024 Mexico Open Weather Forecast and Projections

Article Image

We’re teeing off for the Mexico Open in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, this week, and the weather is absolutely divine… I wonder if anyone has ever thought of taking a winter vacation down there before.

As usual in my golf weather forecasts, we’re focusing more on wind than rain. While rain can halt play if it’s heavy enough, it also helps soften and slow the course, which helps as much as it hurts. With wind, there’s no helpful side; it’s all negative impact. And the impact can lead to dramatic differences in scoring. My goal is always to try and highlight the time frame with the lightest winds and the time frame with the strongest winds to see if there’s a cumulative advantage for one wave over another. You can then use this to your advantage when making your picks on DFS sites and sportsbooks.

Mexico Open Weather Forecast

Thursday, February 22nd

Dry, calm morning winds of 0-5 mph will build to around 5-10 mph sustained by the afternoon, with gusts reaching around 20 mph.

Friday, February 23rd

We’re actually just going to see that kind of weather repeated every day, so it’ll be calm morning winds and manageably light afternoon winds.

Saturday, February 24th

It’s 0-5 mph early, 5-10 mph by the afternoon, with gusts around 20 mph.

Sunday, February 25th

It’s the same deal to close the tournament. I’d rather be on the course early to take advantage of the calm winds, but the afternoon conditions are still perfectly manageable.

Mexico Open Weather Thoughts

It’s pretty much a perfect golf forecast all week, so I don’t think we’ll have much of a weather edge. As a general rule, the mornings will be a bit easier than the afternoons, but there’s no one day that sticks out as truly problematic.
