    With all of this rain lately, it may have you wondering if our weather pattern will remain unsettled as we head toward the Aug. 21 eclipse! Right now the official outlook from Climate Prediction Center keeps us in a wetter than normal pattern. That does not mean it will rain on Aug. 21, but it means during the days leading up to the eclipse we will likely see more rain than normal.  According to NASA, during mid-August our area has about a 40% chance for seeing cloud cover....
