Eclipse Day Weather Tracker

Good Monday, everyone. The big day is here and I have the blog all set for your solar eclipse tracking needs. I have various satellite shots, radars and live web cams for you to track this historic day.

In addition to the tracking toys on the blog, WKYT-TV will be live during the eclipse. We have folks all over the state and we have a ton of different cameras to give you a great view of how this eclipse is unfolding at different locations.

Some clouds are going to try to join our eclipse watching at times, and a I can’t rule out a stray shower or thunderstorm popping up today.

The satellite images should look pretty awesome as you track the shadow of the moon across the country. Enjoy…

Looking ahead to tomorrow, there’s the threat for strong to severe storms working across the region as a cold front moves in. The Storm Prediction Center has our region in the risk area…

A gorgeous brand of air follows that up for the rest of the week.

Happy eclipse day and take care.

    Here’s some great information on the solar eclipse : https://www.nasa.gov/eclipse2017

    On the Goes east satellite, two important weather systems stand out. In the upper mid-west, a large area of energy, which warrants watching as it moves east- southeast. I expect the system to weaken, and may stay north of the Ohio River. The other area to watch this week is in the Caribbean. Very active thunder storm activity, but no organized systems, I expect this to change in the next few weeks. http://www.weatherstreet.com/hurricane/2017/Hurricane-Atlantic-2017.htm

    Looking at my Distant Suns app, the sun and moon are already pretty close with Mars hanging out in the background.

    Also, track the view of the Sun here as well on Internet in near-real time…about 7-10 minutes old.

    While Nashville will be the largest US city to experience a total eclipse, other eclipse hotspots will be dark longer such as Hopkinsville KY, Gallatin TN and Athens TN. Speaking of Athens, hey BlizzardTim!!   

    My wife and I were in Oregon a few weeks ago where eclipse fever has also taken hold.  There were (and still are) several wild fires in the northwest that in some cases could hamper visibility for the eclipse. Interestingly, it was very hot in Oregon during our visit (except along the coast at Astoria) yet when we got back to Tennessee it was relatively mild.  Kind of crazy 😉 .

    Stay safe, everyone!

      Guess I didn’t have enough morning coffee, but anyway did not mean to say Astoria was along the ocean coast. Astoria is next to the Columbia River but the city is of course still a few miles inland from the ocean. We visited many places including Portland, Astoria as well as ocean coastline along both Oregon and Washington state.
