Good Sunday afternoon, gang. It’s all eyes on a once in a lifetime event for the state of Kentucky. A total solar eclipse takes place on Monday, and everyone will be looking toward the sky, hoping for clear conditions. Does mother nature have something else in mind?
I’m watching a setup that will likely throw some clouds across the state and may even pop isolated showers and storms. Tomorrow’s event, like everything else dealing with weather, is all about time and location. While this doesn’t look like a full blown overcast day, some of us will have to fight clouds to see the eclipse.
The GFS has a complex of showers and storms to our west and northwest, with clouds blowing off into Kentucky…
The Hi Res NAM also has us fighting the clouds, but isn’t as expansive as he GFS…
We get scattered clouds to go up about every afternoon here in Kentucky. That’s especially the case in the summer months. Throw in a wet ground and temps flirting with 90, and those clouds may be just a little more expansive at times.
While I do not expect total cloud cover tomorrow, I do expect some areas to fight scattered clouds during the eclipse. Don’t be surprised to see radar spitting out isolated showers and storms, either.
I will be on WKYT-TV tonight at 6 and 11 with the latest forecast for the big day. My next update will also have things set for all your weather/eclipse tracking needs.
Enjoy the rest of your day and take care.
