Sep 27-28, 2015 supermoon and total lunar eclipse

JustaSooner mentioned the southeast coastal low pressure that might give our area a little rain this weekend. Our weather Sunday night may depend upon how far west the clouds from that low reach. We could be on the edge of the thickest cloud cover, but hopefully the clouds are at least breaking up on Sunday evening. We might catch glimpses of the eclipse.

Latest forecast for the Toledo area:

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 76. East wind 9 to 14 mph.

Saturday Night: A slight chance of rain after midnight. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 57. East wind 9 to 14 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy, with a high near 74. Southeast wind around 10 mph.

Sunday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 58.

Monday: Partly sunny, with a high near 78.
