Special Eclipse Update – Wednesday Storm System

A Solar Eclipse, obviously, is a very rare event and we’ve been talking about it for weeks and months. Although we are not in the path of totality for Monday’s Eclipse, 86% coverage will be decent! In Montgomery, the eclipse start at 12:40, ends 3:17, with a PEAK at 1:59PM. But what about the clouds? I’m cautiously optimistic that we’ll get a good look at much of the eclipse. Easily better than a 50-60% chance, and that’s conservative. I’m showing you 2 hi-res models here at peak time. There will be clouds in area, but there’s a GOOD chance of decent viewing conditions. Fingers crossed. Complete Blog Update in the morning.

We have a powerhouse Wednesday storm system on the way. Rainfall amounts will be EXCESSIVE. Easily 4 to 6”, but some models are higher than that. Flooding will certainly be a threat. Not only that, SPC says there’s also an increasing severe weather threat covering much of the area. One potential limiting factor on the severe weather will be the excessive rainfall. I will have a complete briefing for you with an extensive Blog update and video in the morning.
