Thank you Mark!

1.5 days left, and a reliable weather forecast is available...
Best places for viewing the eclipse (with regard to weather) in Europe would be Montenegro, Albania, Macedonia and NW Greece.
Most of other countries south of 49°N and north of 56°N would see it too, but with partly cloudy skies. In particular, partly cloudy weather is expected in Finnland and NW Russia, where the eclipse magnitude is greatest (>83%).

Central Ukraine is predicted to be... #$#$@... perhaps the worst place in Europe... despite the first week of January is mildly cold and mostly clear, Tuesday (with both adjacent nights) will provide us an intense snowfall (cyclone is due to come from Balcanic peninsula). I have some not clearly defined ideas to get on the wheels and go some 400km west - to see at least something through the clouds...  Undecided

P.S. Have made clouds/pressure animations for Europe and Ukraine (GFS model).
