Joe’s Weather Blog: Eclipse clouds (MON-8/21)

Weather

On August 21, 2017 the sun will disappear for a short time. For a swath of the country from Portland, Oregon, to Charleston, South Carolina, it will feel like someone just turned off the sun in the middle of the day.

Good morning…full blog coming this afternoon when things settle down as far as the eclipse goes…let’s get a cloud update out now though…

Storms are still churning out there, especially in NW MO/NE KS and also towards the south and east of I-35. These storms, especially the MO side storms are producing some locally heavy rains.

More importantly though…at least for a little while…we may start to see bluer skies move into the area behind the storms…it may take a bit of time though…here is the latest, up to the minute, satellite image

 

My main area of concerns for clouds are NW MO/NE KS (general clouds)/SE NE (lots of cirrus) and obviously our area (cirrus clouds [higher up but hopefully thinner]) and cumulus clouds (lower levels).

IF it was me…I’d be taking a bit of a trip eastwards towards central MO…

Let’s hope for the best…I still think for the metro it will be a pretty cool thing to witness…BUT it’s all about TOTALITY and seeing the sun/moon interaction for those brief seconds and that will truly be a winner and loser proposition through that process…sort of like I’ve been saying for quite some time now.
