It will be mostly sunny, hot and humid Sunday with a slight chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms east of a Bonham to Centerville line. Highs will be in the mid 90s to 102 degrees. The combination of the heat and humidity will make it feel like it is 98 to 108 degrees. In addition to cloud to ground lightning, gusty winds and heavy rain may accompany the storms .
It will be mostly sunny, hot and humid Monday with a slight chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms east of a Sherman to Emory line. Highs will be in the mid 90s to around 100 degrees. The combination of the heat and humidity will make it feel like it is 95 to 108 degrees.
There will be increasing cloudiness Tuesday night and chances of showers and thunderstorms will spread southward during the evening through the overnight hours as a cold front approaches. Lows will be in the 70s. Winds will be southerly at 5 to 10 mph ahead of the front. There will be chances of showers and thunderstorms area wide Wednesday as the cold front continues to move southward into Central Texas by late afternoon. Highs will range from the upper 80s near the Red River to the upper 90s across parts of Central Texas. Southerly winds at 5 to 10 mph will shift to the northeast as the front passes.
A total solar eclipse will occur on Monday, August 21, 2017. Unfortunately, North and Central Texas will be well away from the path of totality (where it actually gets dark). Coverage of the sun over North and Central Texas will range from around 69 percent in Brownwood to nearly 82 percent in Texarkana. The moon's shadow will move across the U.S. at over 1500 mph! The transcontinental trip will occur in 90 minutes! The last time that we've been able to view this much of a solar eclipse was on May 10, 1994. The next solar eclipse that will be viewable from Texas will be an annular eclipse on October 14, 2023. During this event, the maximum shadow (~90 percent coverage) will track from Albuquerque, NM to San Antonio to Corpus Christi. A Total Eclipse will occur on April 8, 2024. Totality will occur from Del Rio, to Killeen, to Dallas, to Little Rock, AR.
It is NOT safe to look directly at the sun without proper protection for your eyes. Doing so can lead to temporary or permanent blindness. The only time that it would be safe to look directly at the sun would be during the 2 minutes or so of totality in the relatively small area that will have complete darkness. Since that won't be true for our area, we must use special glasses that are ISO 12312-2 compliant if we want to look directly at the sun. Another way to observe the solar eclipse is indirect viewing: Here are two ways: * Use a pinhole camera - you can make one yourself; https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/edu/learn/project/how-to-make-a- pinhole-camera/ * Trees - You can look at the images of the sun coming through the holes formed by the leaves. (You'll see a lot of little eclipses.)
