If the forecast in the town you are visiting says "partly cloudy" should you be worried you won't see anything? Looking at Hillsborough, Missouri (St. Louis area)

I believe you are in the path of totality in the St. Louise area. Even if there is complete cloud cover, you’ll likely still notice it getting darker, and you’ll definitely still feel the temperature drop. I’m not sure if you’ll notice odd animal behavior as that’s not my area of expertise, but I would think you might. I would say you should still go and see it! Especially if you are in an area with a chance of partly cloudy. You never know, the clouds may disappear for at least a portion of totality! 

Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun (1755-1842)
“The Artist’s Brother” (1773)
Oil on canvas
Rococo
Located in the Saint Louis Art Museum, St. Louis, Missouri, United States

Le Brun’s brother, Étienne Vigée (1758-1820) was a French playwright and man of letters. He was popular in the salons for his pleasant personality and quick wit.

“Be careful not to do too much. It is a ruse of the devil, by which he deceives good people, to induce them to do more than they are able, so that they end up not being able to do anything. The spirit of God urges one gently to do the good that can reasonably be done, so that it may be done perseveringly and for a long time.”
—  St. Vincent de Paul, to Saint Louise, June 1632

“Miss Ruth” was a modern dance pioneer who, with her partner Ted Shawn, founded the Denishawn School in Los Angeles in 1915. The school taught all types of dance, as well as classes in gesture and Dalcroze eurythmics for silent film actors. Louise Brooks was their most famous Hollywood pupil.
