Local eclipse viewing conditions ‘mostly sunny,’ Weather Service says

The Palm Beach Post/Allen Eyestone

Where will you be between 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. today? If you’re one of those who will slip out of the office to watch the solar eclipse — which of course is everyone — all you want to know is if clouds will ruin your once-in-a-century experience.

Well?

“It should be pretty good for viewing the eclipse,” National Weather Service Miami office meteorologist Andrew Hagen said around 6:45 am. today.

At the height of the eclipse locally, around 3 p.m., “We’re experiencing 35 percent cloud cover. That’s pretty good because that’s equivalent to ‘mostly sunny,” Hagan said. “The rain chances during that time of the eclipse in Palm Beach County are 10 percent or less.”
