Clouds will move in from the west tonight, crossing over the state through midday Saturday. Clouds may obscure the view of the Annular Solar Eclipse on Saturday. The total eclipse will be at 10:36, and clouds will be moving out of Albuquerque around that time. The high clouds will still be overhead in eastern and southern NM at that time, which may lead to some difficulty viewing the eclipse. Clouds will roll out during the afternoon, and Sunday will be sunny. Temperatures will warm up Saturday and Sunday, with Sunday being the warmer day of the two.
