Sun & Clouds For Today's Eclipse

22 August 2017

It may be too cloudy or rainy to see the partial solar eclipse on Monday, the National Weather Service said Sunday.

Tonight: A Few Clouds, Muggy. Areas where clouds could block the view: the Upper Midwest and portions of New Mexico and Florida.

Tonight will be partly cloudy, with a low around 72 and winds continuing out of the southwest at 8 to 11 miles per hour. By lunchtime, most of the rain will have weakened, and we'll be left with some broken cloud cover. The best bet for better skies is to go west. Skies should have more breaks and thinner clouds in west-central and western Nebraska.

I expect most of the afternoon to have a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the mid 80s. We're already tracking cloud cover from the system moving into much of the northern half of IL, and will likely see some of that cloud cover move into central IN as we roll deeper into the day.

We have a cloud problem. "Maybe we'll sneak in a few peeks at the eclipse".

Originally, they had planned for Warren to shoot Lathem while Lathem stabbed Warren, prosecutors claim. The charges came after a post-mortem examination found the victim had methamphetamines in his system.

"It's called being clouded-out", said Beatty, who has had three of eclipse chases disrupted by the weather: 1991 in Hawaii, 2004 in South Africa and 2013 in Kenya. "Right now, our visibility looks a little iffy as we head through midday".

Recapping some eclipse factoids: The region is looking at 82 percent coverage, peaking at 2:42 p.m.

Highs today warm into the low 90s.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible Monday afternoon around eclipse time (around 1 p.m.), but the bulk of the thunderstorm activity will occur Monday evening through Monday night, according to the weather service forecast. Showers will continue into Thursday but storm chance will be low. Some of the storms could produce gusty winds and heavy rain. This storm system will move northwest to southeast right on top of us and we're so certain everyone will get soaked, that nearly the entire viewing area is already under a FLASH FLOOD WATCH through 10am tomorrow.

Wednesday - Sunny with a high around 80. We'll stay clear and sunny all day with temperatures topping out in the lower 90's.
