Here is an image showing the coverage of clouds in reality vs. what a model that has been predicting widespread cloud cover for the eclipse had prognosticated for this afternoon. As you can see, the end result is close, but clouds aren’t as thick as forecast in many areas and slightly less widespread than models had said.

This might mean a few areas on the fringes of cloud coverage on the most aggressive models will still have views. Ditto for areas in cloud cover where some pretty prominent breaks are present. We’re going to be making a final decision from chase HQ on where we’re going early tomorrow morning.
