GARDNERVILLE, Nev. — The eclipse will cover 80.1 percent of the sun in Gardnerville this morning. The moon will begin to encroach on the sun’s path starting around 9:04 a.m. and continue for two hours and 38 minutes. The peak of the eclipse will be approximately 10:20 a.m.
The Valley has a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms after 11 a.m. and the afternoon high will be near 89 degrees under hazy skies.
Just a reminder, the Douglas County Public Library issued a recall on the safety glasses it had been giving away over the past several weeks — so don’t use those to view the eclipse. View more on that here.
Use precautions while driving as well — turn on your headlights during the eclipse and if you want to watch it, pull over and use proper eye protection.
We’ll be rounding up a weekend’s worth of updates this morning, so check back for those.
That’s a full lid for this morning. Take care out there and have a great day.
