More weather updates for April 8: Eclipse day is finally here. Will Indiana weather cooperate? Here's what NWS says

The incoming clouds are cirrus clouds, which are typically higher and appear as the more thin, whispy looking clouds in the sky.

The clouds are estimated to arrive in central Indiana between 1 to 2 p.m., around the time when the partial eclipse will begin (which is 1:50 p.m.).

The NWS Weather Prediction Center also shared their final eclipse update also confirming the cloud cover on X.

"Clouds will impact the view throughout much of the totality path, but high clouds from Texas to Ohio and in parts of New England may not completely obscure the eclipse," the Tweet said.
