A partial eclipse happens when the moon passes in front of the sun, partially obscuring the disk of the sun with some of it left uncovered. This is supposed to occur tomorrow between 5pm and 6pm on the East Coast and closer to 2pm on the west coast.

Viewing is expected to be best for people in the Central Time Zone because of the timing and the weather, which is mainly clear in those locations. Locally, it may be a different story, as the low pressure system riding along the east coast is expected to continue to spread clouds over the region. The hope is the region will start mostly cloudy tomorrow morning but break into some sunshine by the afternoon. We'll keep you posted tomorrow!
One thing is for certain, if you can see the sun, do not attempt to view the partial eclipse without special viewing tools as you can damage your eyes. From NASA, "Direct viewing should only be attempted with the aid of a safe solar filter."
