The Great Eclipse forecast

The Great Eclipse forecast

Viewing conditions look good for most of the Carolinas for Monday's solar eclipse, but there could be some clouds and even shower possibilities for the Charleston, South Carolina area.

"It's all based on when that cumulus growth is going to happen - when those lower clouds start to develop", Kook said.

The National Weather Service predicts a 57.3 percent chance of the eclipse being viewable in Daytona Beach.

St. Louis solar eclipse forecast

As the sun was setting Sunday evening, you might have noticed some of these high wispy clouds showing up and this morning's satellite loop clearly indicates high clouds moving east in the jet stream. Looks at the sky may be more possible closer to the Interstate 80 corridor and north, the weather service said. They warn of possible damaging winds and large hail. For many, though, cloud cover threatens to ruin ideal views of the moon crossing completely in front of the sun.

Good viewing is expected for the early afternoon along the path of totality from southeast Missouri and southern IL into western Kentucky and most of Tennessee, AccuWeather said.

Muggy August air will create chances for showers and storms through Tuesday. For the rest of the day we'll stay clear and sunny, which means warmer temperatures.

President Trump to outline Afghanistan strategy in primetime address
Mr Tankel said outsourcing the battle in Afghanistan was the "worst of all options" open to the Trump administration. The White House said Friday that Trump was "studying and considering his options" for a new approach to the regions.

The peak is at 2:43 p.m. with it beginning 1:18 p.m. and ending around 4:02 p.m. There's another pocket of smoke upstream which may give the sun a bit more of a reddish hue during the eclipse, especially over northern Maine. Temperatures will climb from the 60s around 7 AM to the upper 70s and lower 80s at noon.

Your bag is packed, you've got your camera and eclipse glasses, your hotel room that you booked a year ago is waiting for you - but the forecast is calling for persistent rain.

Thursday: Mostly Cloudy with Showers and Storms Likely. Plan on highs in the lower/middle 90s with a heat index approaching 100° this afternoon.

It will be seasonally hot today with a high between 91 and 94 degrees for most places.
