*A look at cloud cover prospects for solar eclipse Monday, April 8th* — Arcfield Weather

1 min read

As a result, the cloud cover outlook for Monday is somewhat favorable for viewing across the Northeast US including NY and New England and more questionable from Ohio southwestward to Texas. Clouds are certainly a fickle weather parameter and since there are unlikely to be any large storm systems around – such as we have had to deal with this week – I wouldn’t rule out any place along the totality path from this vantage point.

Original posting below on the great total solar eclipse…

Overview

In August of 2017 America went crazy for the first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse on US soil since 1918 and it provided a great opportunity for scientists and all sky watchers. What was referred to as “The Great American Solar Eclipse” took place on August 21st, 2017 when the moon passed between the sun and earth. Total solar eclipses occur somewhere on Earth every year or so, but generally cast their shadows over oceans or remote land masses.  If you missed the 2017 total solar eclipse or it turned out to be cloudy in your particular area then there will be another opportunity on Monday, April 8th. This time the Moon’s dark shadow, about 115 miles wide, will cross Mexico, sweep northeast from Texas to Maine, and then darken the Canadian Maritimes.
