North Georgia Is Expected To Have Clouds During The Eclipse

If you want to see the 2024 eclipse well in the northern parts of the city and state, the weather isn’t friendly.

As of Sunday afternoon, the National Weather Service says that clouds will cover between 50% and 75% of North Georgia on Monday from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. But things look better down south where it’s sunny.

A meteorologist with the National Weather Service named Lindsay Marlow said, “We’re still expecting North Georgia to have the worst conditions, with partly to mostly cloudy skies during the early afternoon.” However, she added, “areas south of I-20 are looking at sunny skies for pretty much the whole day.”

Around 3:04 p.m., the moon will pass between the Earth and the sun, blocking between 82% and 85% of the sun’s light. From about 1:15 p.m. to 4:20 p.m., the eclipse will happen.

There will be 13 states in the line of totality, starting in Texas and ending in Maine. You have to be in a certain place along the line of the eclipse to see the whole thing.

The National Weather Service says that it will be cloudy in North Georgia during the eclipse. This means that some of us who are still here might only catch bits of the show.

Monday, weather moving across the central U.S. will cause clouds to cover a lot of the path of the eclipse. For a good view of the whole eclipse, northern New England is the best place to be. The NWS said that the weather could change at any time, which could make it hard for you to see.

It might rain in spots on Monday as well. The Northwest Weather Service (NWS) said that light showers will stay in northwest Georgia. There is still a very small chance that it will rain in Atlanta during the eclipse.

If you find yourself looking at clouds (with your eclipse glasses, of course), you can do other things. The total solar eclipse can still be seen on the web.
