WEATHER UPDATE: ANNUAL SOLAR ECLIPSE

This Friday morning there will be an annular solar eclipse, for us it will be partial.

Annular eclipses are rarer than total eclipses. The moon is further away and doesn’t cover the sun completely causing a ring of fire to form around the moon which will seen in full over Cape York.

There’s a good chance it will be seen inland as coastal cloud and showers may impede viewing in the east.

Tomorrow will be a great day for the Hunter with increased warmth and sunshine. The shower activity will contract to the north mostly affecting the Northern Rivers and SE QLD. The coastal showers will spread back to the south along the coast during the end of the week.
