YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – With about 80 percent coverage during the solar eclipse, we had calls come into the newsroom, asking about the temperature change during the eclipse.
The sky began darkening at 1 p.m., and at 2:30 p.m., the moon almost completely covered the sun.
It may have felt cooler during that time, but WKBN 27 First News Meteorologist Paul Wetzl found there wasn’t much of a temperature difference.
Around 2:30 p.m., Paul found that the temperature dropped about 1 degree.
