The eclipse track passes over the Pacific's equatorial doldrums,
skipping through the Galápagos before landing on the Pacific
shores of Panama and Colombia. Even this area, one of the wettest
in the world, is in the midst of its dry season, with subdued
cloudiness and rainfall. Over the Andes into northern Colombia
and Venezuela the track enters a very dry, sunny climate with
cooling trade winds. February is the dry season in this already
desiccated area, so the prospects for sunny skies are very good.
Farther east, over the Leeward Islands, cloud cover increases
slightly, but fine weather persists into the mid Atlantic.
