Eclipse viewing likely won’t be thwarted by clouds in Berks

Clouds are headed toward Berks County, but the likely won’t ruin the view of a rare solar eclipse this afternoon.

According to Tom Kines, meteorologist for, Monday morning saw clouds covering the sky over much of western Pennsylvania. They’re moving east and will arrive in Berks late this morning or early this afternoon.

While the cloud cover may be thick heavy for a period, by the time the moon starts its trek in front of the sun around 2 p.m., the clouds will likely be high and thin, Kines said.

“I think by the time the eclipse starts, things will be better,” he said. “While it might not be perfect, you’ll be able to see the eclipse.”

The eclipse will begin about 2 p.m. and hit its peak, with more than 90% of the sun covered by the moon, around 3 p.m.
