It's been a very cold day and temperatures are about to take a dive even deeper tonight. We'll see lows getting down to 5 to 10 below zero, with wind chills between -10 and -20. We will see highs back into the low teens tomorrow with mostly sunny skies. The question for tonight is will clouds and lake effect snow clear out in time for us to see the total lunar eclipse? It will be a close call for areas closer to the lake where lake snow and clouds may linger into the late evening/overnight. Eastern areas will likely clear out in plenty of time. The good thing about lake effect, though is that it tends to come and go so even in areas near Lake Michigan, if it's mostly cloudy you still might catch the eclipse in between areas of clouds. The partial eclipse starts at 10:34 pm ET and the total eclipse begins at 11:41pm ET, with the total eclipse lasting about an hour. It will all be done after 1:30am, so hopefully everyone gets a chance to see it at some point.
For the rest of the week, we have another system coming in on Tuesday. It will bring a wintry mix of snow, ice and rain as temperatures continue to rise into Tuesday evening, and falling back down on Wednesday. After that we will be cold again to finish the week with several chances for system and lake effect snow.
