A total lunar eclipse will happen Sunday night, a very exciting celestial event! However, we will only be able to see the eclipse IF skies clear out. The event starts around 10 pm and ends around 1 a.m. Monday morning.
The general trend will be for clouds to decrease late Sunday night from west to east. Inland areas see a better chance for clearing early, with clouds holding later near the lake. Even with partial clearing, we should get a glimpse. Look to the east/southeast to witness the eclipse, from a high spot if possible as the moon will be low on the horizon. We will have updates at 5 and 10 pm on air. Overnight lows will drop into the mid to upper 50s.
Winds pick up Monday with gusts up to 35 mph. Temperatures will be mild, climbing into the 70s, and skies will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy.
Cooler air moves in for Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s. A few showers are possible late Tuesday into Wednesday. Friday brings a chance for rain and a few thunderstorms. It will be a warm and humid end to the week, before another cool down sets in.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Windy
Wind: NW 10-20 G35 mph
TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy, ch. showers late
WEDNESDAY: Chance showers
THURSDAY: Partly sunny
FRIDAY: Chance shower/storms, warm and humid
