According to Great American Eclipse, “Unless there is widespread cloudy weather, eclipse-seeking visitors should meet success if they utilize Interstate 80 and other roads in Nebraska.”

Eclipse meteorologist Jay Anderson says that the best odds for seeing a clear sky would be in the western section of Nebraska. Weather is likely to become worse as you go eastwards. “By our best estimate, Nebraska is the closest destination for 33 million Americans and we further estimate actual visitation on eclipse day at between 117,000 and 466,000 people.”

The total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017, will only be visible for about two to two-and-a-half minutes. In general, and from any states, those wanting to see the total eclipse should travel within 60 to 70 miles of path of totality.
