Storm Center 7 Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs will be doing a Facebook Live at 10 a.m. ahead of the eclipse on Dayton Daily News Facebook page. From 1 until 4 p.m., meteorologists will be live on the WHIO Facebook page from the Storm Center 7 studio and the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery.
WHIO Radio will have a special live show from 1 until 4 p.m. The special Eclipse show can be listened to live here.
There are several events planned throughout the Miami Valley today, including over 10 watch parties.
Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar said there is a slight chance for rain today with some cloud coverage, but there will still be the chance to see the eclipse this afternoon.
Some local schools are closing today out of concern for student safety, while other districts are making plans, as the eclipse will be happening around dismissal time.
Since the Miami Valley won’t experience a total solar eclipse, there is a threat and concern that looking directly at the eclipse could cause retina damage to your eyes. If you don’t have a pair of certified eclipse glasses, there are other ways to view the eclipse, including a pinhole projector.
Animals may be affected by the eclipse, and Director of the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center said it may not be a bad idea to bring pets inside.
