The weather is cooperating and people are streaming into Wyoming to get a view of the total solar eclipse.

Mostly sunny skies across the state should provide eclipse viewers with a mostly unobstructed view of the event.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation reports heavy traffic Monday morning heading north through Cheyenne.

The agency says traffic started picking up in the Cheyenne area at around 3 a.m.

At times, Cheyenne was looking more like Denver with traffic congestion along Interstate 25.

The path of totality, when the moon completely blocks out the sun, starts about 70 miles north of Cheyenne. The path will move across the state, starting in Jackson Hole, passing over Casper and then exiting in the Torrington area.
