Finger Lakes solar eclipse: What happens if it’s cloudy?

The Finger Lakes region is gearing up for a spectacular astronomical event on April 8, 2024 — a total solar eclipse, the area’s most significant celestial event in nearly a century.

While the area has been highlighted as a prime viewing spot, concerns about its reputation as one of the cloudiest regions have surfaced.


However, experts assure that cloudy weather will not ruin the experience. Even if the sun is obscured, the temperature will drop, animals will behave as if it’s night, and the sky will darken significantly.

Despite potential clouds, the eclipse will offer a unique dusk-like atmosphere in all directions, creating a surreal environment. This phenomenon ensures that residents and visitors in the Finger Lakes will have plenty to celebrate, experience, and enjoy during this rare occurrence.
