Will clouds, storms block DC's view of the solar eclipse?

St. Louis to Nashville should have good views of the eclipse. However thunderstorms could roll through parts of Nebraska northeast Kansas and Missouri

There is a 20 percent chance of rain Monday, Minton said.

Otherwise, Monday will be hot and humid.

In the Weather Center at NewsChannel 21, I'm Michaela Beechem.

Weather conditions in the Shoals appear to be lining up for a good viewing opportunity of today's solar eclipse. It has nearly been like the Super Bowl, with hours and hours of non-stop talk and analysis of the Big Game.when all you really want is to do is watch the Big Game!

But, as Kook said, lower cumulus clouds could form, especially throughout lower MI, due to a storm front that's moving through Iowa as of 8:14 a.m. We will know much more by early Monday morning when we can see extent and location of storm development and movement of those storms.

Tuesday will be even warmer with highs in the lower 90s.

"When eclipse day dawns, weather will trump all the geometric calculations and careful planning that eclipse-chasers have anxious about for years", said Kelly Beatty, senior editor of Sky & Telescope magazine and a veteran eclipse chaser.

Tonight's storm system will be a quick-mover too.

In preparing for the eclipse, the Almanac compiled many of those myths, legends and lore surrounding the historic astronomical occurrence. The overall weather pattern will mellow out a bit for the rest of the work and school week. For the afternoon, most areas will see a mix of sun and clouds.

Dry and cooler weather with lots of sunshine late week and into the weekend. But until then, it's smooth sailing for the second-to-last week in August! In areas where skies are clear - the temp decrease would be greater. A hazardous weather outlook has already been issued for parts of Southern New York and Northeastern Pennsylvania. Check back for updates. No matter where you are, we're always watching and always tracking!
