Solar Eclipse Weather Forecast (8/14 update)

The big day for Nebraska is getting closer...

The total solar eclipse will occur on Monday August, 21st with the peak eclipse time occurring for Lincoln from 1:02 to 1:04 pm. The big question now is will the weather cooperate? If the sky is overcast then this will be a total bust for many Nebraskans. The eclipse date is now one week away which is still a little tough for us to accurately forecast this far out but there are a couple long range models that are giving us some ideas. These models can't tell us what exactly the cloud cover will be at a specific time but the general front, temperature and pressure patterns and if any storm systems are expected.

As of today (8/14) the long range models show a warm front with an isolated storm possibly occurring Sunday and into Sunday night the 20th.

At this point it looks like much of the rain chances should be east of area by Monday morning and the time of the eclipse we'll be partly to mostly sunny with temperatures in the mid-upper 80s. Sky coverage would likely be 25-50%.

Again this is for fun, the forecast is still subject to change 8 days out! And we'll continue to update this periodically as we get closer to Aug 21st.

Make sure you have those eclipse glasses!
