Monday will mark one of the most talked about events of the summer: the total eclipse of the sun. The path of totality clips Northeastern Kansas, including Hiawatha. As part of the event, the Kansas mesonet station at Hiawatha, and other stations near the path, will be collecting one-minute data on temperature, relative humidity, and solar radiation. You will be able to track the impact the eclipse has on the various environmental factors on a minute to minute basis as the moon shadow covers the sun and as the sun emerges from the shadow.
