The biggest question for Monday will be cloud cover that may affect viewing the solar eclipse. A storm system across Iowa and Illinois may cause high clouds to push across parts of western Ohio. The exact timing of this shield of clouds and it’s thickness will be based on storm activity Monday afternoon to our west.
The solar eclipse timing for Dayton: It starts at 1:02 PM, peaks with about 90% coverage of the sun at 2:28 PM and ends at 3:51 PM. The total time for the solar eclipse is expected to be 2 hours and 49 minutes.
