We are so excited for the Solar Eclipse tomorrow! To help you with those last-minute preparations, in our Facebook Live, we share some low-cost ideas to safely watch the eclipse in case you were not able to get ahold of those special glasses!

Even if you were able to find the glasses, you want to make sure your child’s eyes are protected. So we also have an idea for a minor modification to ensure those the glasses remain in place.

Check out our Facebook Live.

 

Are you ready for tomorrow’s solar eclipse?

Posted by WxIntegrations on Sunday, August 20, 2017

 

As a reminder, the eclipse will move across the US from across Oregon starting around 1020 am PDT to South Carolina around 240 pm EDT. The full eclipse will be near the border of Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska.

The map below has the specific details and path of the moon and Sun across the US for the timing and location for viewing.

Will It Be Sunny??

The big question on everyone’s mind is, 

Will have sunny conditions to see the eclipse? 

Below is the cloud cover forecast for the US around 1 pm CDT on Monday, August 21, 2017. If you see blues on the map for your location, you will likely have at mostly sunny to sunny conditions. So the Western States are looking at great conditions for viewing the Eclipse. Unfortunately, we are seeing a decent amount of gray in the Central US, which means we will have some clouds. The deeper the gray indicates thicker and more widespread cloud coverage. For the most part, the Southeast is also looking good. However, we do have some concerns for clouds in the coastal areas of South Carolina as the eclipse completes its path across the US.

While both for USDA Forest Service and the Canadian Wildland Fire Information System continue to show active fires in the West, latest satellite views are not showing dense smoke plumes. Thus, we do not expect the smoke to be a significant factor.
