Early models continued to show cloud cover across NW Wyoming; however medium range models are looking more favorable. Any rain shower activity is expected to be east of the state and should not be a factor overall in the morning hours.
Cloud cover is of course a concern, overall across the line of totality expect 20% to 40% cloud cover with the main clouds being high level (Cirrus) and some med level clouds (Cumulus). Best forecasted models for cloud cover will come 48 hours ahead of the event. Confidence remain slow to stray either way from a partly cloudy forecast along the line of totality.
In true August fashion for Wyoming the state is still looking to be one of the best locations in the country for the Great American Eclipse!
REMEMBER: No forecast model can predict if a single cloud will move in front of the sun during the eclipse.
Roads across the state are dry and will stay mostly dry for the entire weekend.
High pressure will set up shop in Wyoming today and last all weekend long. As a result we will see plenty of sunshine, warm temperatures and low chances for rain or clouds state wide through Sunday.
Areas of haze will stick around portions of Wyoming. With a southwesterly flow smoke from the Pole Creek Fire in Lincoln County, Wyoming expect sunny skies but hazy conditions.
