    Fair visibility for the eclipse will be at 2:47 p.m. and will end by 4:11 p.m. The best viewing will be at the beaches because there will be afternoon inland storms.

    The best viewing will be east of I-95 all the way to the beaches. The storms will generally be along and west of I-95.

    St. Augustine is also a good option.

    The entire Jacksonville area will be experiencing partly to mostly cloudy skies.
