Much of US should have good viewing for eclipse
Most of the nation should see fairly quiet weather Monday for the Great American Eclipse, the National Weather Service said.
Folks in a narrow swath of land from Oregon to South Carolina will see the total eclipse, while most of the rest of North America will see a partial eclipse.
The cloudiest spots should be the Upper Midwest and the Southeast, the weather service predicts.
The cloudy skies in the Upper Midwest will be because of a storm that’s forecast to push through the region, while the view in the Southeast could be marred by thunderstorms.
Morning low clouds could also fill skies in coastal areas of Washington, Oregon and California, AccuWeather said. But most of the West should have clear or mostly clear skies.
Other areas where sunny skies are expected include most of Texas, the Ohio Valley and portions of the Northeast, AccuWeather said. Elsewhere, hitor-miss clouds are likely. That includes areas along the Mississippi River in much of Missouri and western Kentucky, where the longest total eclipse occurs.
