I'd like to see WU have a wundermap highlighting the stations along the path.

Using the Jim Berkland model-will the eclipse cause an earthquake.
I have not been on that website for a while to see the predictions. Berkland died over a year ago.

For those of you who generate your own forecasts using WxSim software, Tom E. added a new feature this week that takes the Eclipse into account for your location when generating a forecast for Monday. For my location, which has about 76% coverage, I'm showing a 0.6 degree drop in temperature over the Eclipse period versus a 3 degree rise when turning off the Eclipse effect.

Not looking good in my area. Oh well, just one more unfulfilled thing in my bucket list.

Not good here either Nebraska as a whole. Authorities are worried about highways with traffic jams now with everyone moving around trying to find clear skies.

Forecast has deteriorated on WU closer we get. Ground zero around here Stapleton now with 1/2" rain and mostly cloudy. From Valentine it's an easy 5 hour drive on low traffic HW 20 to Casper Wy.

Except that probably at least half of the people already over there will be heading to Wyoming as well so it might get a bit congested.

There are very few things in life I can think of that would cause millions of people to flock to for an unguaranteed two minutes of viewing, and all the hassle that certainly goes with it.

There was a total in May 1970 that covered part of Fla Panhandle, and some of East Coast... was stationed at Eglin AFB... several of us packed up and drove down to a little town, forget which, to observe. Unfortunately, clouds. Weird, though.... birds roosted, very, very strange 'atmosphere' around... folks were like zombies... strange. Never experienced anything quite like it.
BINGO!!!  I remember that eclipse!!!!  I would've been around 12 years old.  I recall hearing something about a solar eclipse but really didn't know what it was...I knew it would get dark.  I was at a friend's house and we were outside playing when suddenly it started getting dark and just as you said...the birds started coming in to roost and indeed it was a weird feeling.  But the biggest thing to me was all the birds rushing to get "home" to roost.

Jackson Wyoming is really congested today.  Full eclipse will occur around 11:36 MDT with several good streaming camera links for anyone wishing.

I drove up to Casper from Denver today, traffic was following at speed and once past Cheyenne it thinned out.

14 hours and 30 minutes until first contact, hope I can sleep tonight!

Latest from NWS Riverton WY discussion (4:15MDT):

Quote
Northern shortwave will push another front southward tonight with
potential for concentrated smoke along and behind it. This smoke
may limit visibility from Riverton to Casper on Monday morning
possibly hampering or at least changing the look of the sky around
the eclipse. One other feature to watch is thinning band of
higher clouds that is forecast by some of the guidance to be
between the Wind River Basin and Casper around totality time. It
may be clearing the Wind River Basin/Riverton vicinity in time and
then possibly affect the Casper area between 11 and noon. May be
a rather narrow band then but there could be some concern for
viewing in this narrow cloud feature. Otherwise, just smoky/hazy
and mostly sunny. Isolated storms possible in swrn Sweetwater
only.

We need everyone to report temperature drops. Somewhere with full sun along with low humidity like mountainous regions will likely have largest drop.

:D OK, so I checked when will be the next total solar eclipse visible from my hometown... 2135... that's gonna be a long wait....

Only 6 years, 7 months and 18 days for me! =D>

But this partial eclipse should also be pretty good.

As late as yesterday afternoon, the forecast was Sunny and 90+ with only a slight mention of storms to the west and some blow off clouds.

This morning they say 80% chance of rain, but think it will hold off until later in the afternoon.
