Eclipse weather today 

Posted: 5:36 am Monday, August 21st, 2017

By Kirk Mellish

Not a clear sky in the Atlanta Metro area this afternoon and not guaranteed dry but conditions look optimistic as most of us stay dry.

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

For Atlanta northward mostly clear 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. Clouds 4 to 12,000 feet.

Special coverage shows on the radio all day!
