Cloud Forecast For Solar Eclipse Viewing


Whether you are staying home or planning a road trip to the heart of totality, viewing this solar eclipse event is a big deal to many of you. No pressure here, but the cloud forecast is going to be very important on Monday.

So what can we expect? First, this is not going to be a simple forecast. Our active weather pattern is going to continue into early next week. The likelihood of thunderstorms in the region Sunday night will be the first factor. 

Our cloud forecast on the European model shows moisture in many areas including parts of Nebraska. A closer look at the cloud deck reveals much of the cloud cover at eclipse time around 1 p.m. should be mid and high level clouds. That’s better than low clouds. 

The best advice is to watch the latest forecast. Remember, the KELOLAND Storm Tracker App is equipped with the latest hour by hour cloud forecast along with a satellite map to track current cloud cover. It goes with you on the road and tracks the weather at any location along the eclipse path of totality to our south.
