Forecasters say we may see some "thin high clouds" at eclipse time

How’s the weather looking for Monday afternoon’s eclipse? WNIN’s John Gibson has details:

The National Weather Service is calling for “mainly thin high clouds” at eclipse time, just after 2 p.m.

Forecasters say the “fly in the ointment” is some morning fog but they say it should “dissipate before eclipse time.”

They also note some low level clouds could linger well into the morning in the Evansville area.

Temperatures will be warm with highs in the mid-to-upper 70’s.

Viewing sites for today’s celestial event include the Evansville Riverfront – which will be closed to vehicular traffic -- Wesselman Woods, USI, the 4-H Center, and Angel Mounds -- which is sold out.

You can also watch from your own yard, so long as you have clear view of the sky.

Wherever you watch, officials warn you must wear approved eclipse glasses.

The only time you can look at the sun without the glasses is during totality.

The moon will start to eclipse the sun at 12:45 reaching totality just after 2:00.

After the eclipse, the sun will get brighter until its back to full brightness at about 3:15.
