Clouds and the Eclipse

As of now it still looks like the majority of us in Metro Atlanta/North Georgia will be able to see MOST or at least some of the eclipse during the approximately 3 hour window of the event.

For Atlanta northward I expect very few clouds to start the day, then a mix of high level thin cirrus clouds and scattered fair weather cumulus clouds will be on the increase during the course of the afternoon, a stray thundershower far NE and far South can not be ruled out but most of us stay dry.

Special coverage shows on the radio all day!
