FOG threatens the viewing of the solar eclipse this morning. The coast, Strait of Juan de Fuca, Whidbey Island, and some cities near Puget Sound have had a fast blanket of fog arrive. There is a period of calm wind that will allow this fog and low cloud cover to linger up until the beginning of the eclipse at 9:08 a.m.
Most fog and low clouds will clear just in time, but, there will be spots that take up until 10 a.m. to clear. The path of totality (which in Seattle: about 92% of the sun is shadowed by the moon) is going to occur between 10:15-10:20am.
Monday and Tuesday: Clearing to sunny and very warm. Highs upper 70’s to low 80’s.
Wednesday: Cloudy skies will create partial clearing in the afternoon. Increasing clouds with a chance of a light shower develop in the evening. Highs will be cooler, mid to upper 60’s to mid 70’s.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy, scattered light rain showers. Highs upper 60’s. Friday through the weekend will be warming back to the upper 70’s with sunny skies.
