Forecast for a rare Lunar Eclipse

TUCSON - Some clouds around tonight for the Lunar Eclipse, says News 4 Meteorologist Chris Nallan.

A stubborn low pressure to the west will continue to feed clouds. This could reduce visibility of the rare Eclipse. It has been more than 370 years since the last Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice (first day of winter).

The Eclipse begins at 11:33 PM MST and will show off a strong coppery red hue by 12:17 AM MST. Again some clouds may reduce this magnificant viewing. Either way it is a great show. You may be lucky and get a nice view.

Above normal temperatures continue through Wednesday. Clouds mixed with sun the next couple of days before a chance of rain for the region on Wednesday. You can expect beautiful sunshine and temps in the low 70s in Tucson on Christmas Day.
