Online – Hill Country Eclipse Quarterly Round Table Meeting

January 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

You are invited to participate in a Hill Country Eclipse Round Table Tuesday, January 16, from 12:00 pm-1:30 pm CDT on MS Teams to discuss ongoing preparations for the total solar eclipse, which may draw hundreds of thousands of visitors to our region in April 2024.

During the last total solar eclipse event in the U.S., back in 2017, many rural communities in its path were overwhelmed by the crowds and the challenges they created for local infrastructure, emergency services, lodging, restaurants, and supermarkets. However, the communities that fared the best were those that started preparing years in advance

In 2024, the total solar eclipse will pass through the middle of the Hill Country, affecting all our communities. This round table is an opportunity for us to share our plans, learn from one another, and benefit from lessons learned by others.

January’s Meeting
Our guest presenter is meteorologist and eclipse chaser Jay Anderson who will be presenting “Five Days to Go! What’s the Weather?” His talk will focus on the variety of weather patterns that may affect Texas in April and examples of past weather patterns of April 8. Jay will show us where to get more detailed weather forecasts on the days ahead of the eclipse and speculate on what impacts the forecast weather may have. This is a meeting you are not going to want to miss!
