A full moon will take place tonight (Tuesday April 7th - Wednesday April 8th) but a ribbon of clouds may make it hard to see from the Gulf Coast, to the Ohio River Valley, to the Northeast. Additional clouds are moving onshore in California.

Lingering high clouds are possible throughout Arkansas and Oklahoma. The farther east you go, the more clouds you can expect. Overall, most of us should be able to see the moon at times, even if it is through some high, thin clouds.
