Weather Permitting, Four Corners Gets Best Seat In Arizona For Solar Eclipse
Astronomers are predicting the best place to see the solar eclipse in Arizona is near the Four Corner's region beginning at 9:30 a.m. local time.
That, of course, is assuming the weather cooperates.
The National Weather Service's meteorologist Mark O'Malley warned, as of the morning of the eclipse appearance, a weather system was brewing along the north-western region.
"There's going to be a lot of clouds up near Kingman and headed toward Las Vegas," he said. "Conditions in the Phoenix-metro area and in the Tucson-metro area (will be) great."
The maximum eclipse hits Arizona a few minutes before 10:30 a.m., with the highest percentage of the eclipse at nearly 77 percent near Page.
