Eclipse forecast effect

I wish I’d though to post this sooner, but for much of the U.S. there’s a chance to use WXSIM’s eclipse effect forecasting feature this Saturday (tomorrow, as I type this). Go to Start/Auto Run and Other Settings, and look for the eclipse planner button on the right. I just remembered to do this this afternoon, for the 53% coverage we’ll get here in Atlanta around 1 PM tomorrow. It knocks a coiuple of degrees off the temperature relative to no eclipse. In Texas, where it’s annular and about 91% covered, that might be about 4 degrees (though it’ll feel like a bigger difference with so little solar radiation striking your skin). I’m looking forward to April 8, 2024 - planning to visit a friend near Austin, and get deep in the path of that total one!!
