Eclipse Day Weather

December is summer in South America. Broken cloud cover is the norm along most of the eclipse path. The climate in Chile is slightly better than Argentina for land based observing of the eclipse. Mobility in the face of bad weather posses a major logistical problem in many places. The good news is that accurate weather data is available so one could use it to reposition away from storms and clouds.

Eclipse Path

The majority of this total solar eclipse takes place over the Pacific Ocean. The eclipse then passes over South America (Chile, Argentina) in the late afternoon ending in the Atlantic.

This is a modest eclipse of about two minutes in duration and high in the sky for most of the land fall across the South American continent. South of Temuco Chile a total solar eclipse of just over two minutes (near the central part of the path) will occur in the after noon with the sun about 70 degrees high in the sky.
