Weather: Sky Cooperates for Eclipse Viewers (8/21 AM)

Amanda's Forecast Discussion

Good morning! Happy Eclipse Day!

It's a toasty day, but there will be little in the way of cloud cover. This will make eclipse viewers quite pleased! Look for a top temp in the mid to upper 80s, nearing 90° in the Champlain Valley. A dew point temperatures in the low to mid 60s makes it feel quite steamy. South wind 5-15 mph.

Remember, sunglasses are NOT enough to protect your eyes while viewing the solar eclipse. You must use solar glasses with an ISO rating, welder's glass of 14 magnitude, a pinhole projector or some other means of projecting the image behind you onto a white surface in front of you. For more ideas, just search 'eclipse' on our homepage. Tonight, mostly clear and mild, mid to upper 60s. A few patches of fog develop again Tuesday morning.

 

Tuesday starts out with some sunshine, but clouds will increase quickly. Late morning right through Tuesday afternoon and evening, we're dodging scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms. Some storms may be strong to severe, producing damaging wind gusts, hail, frequent lightning and heavy downpours.

 

Wednesday, a few early morning showers linger. Otherwise, partly sunny with a cooler high temp in the 70s. Speaking of, we finish the week and kick off the weekend in the 70s with a very quiet weather pattern and tons of sunshine.

Have a stellar day!
