Longmont weather: Mostly sunny skies today as eclipse draws near

St. Louis solar eclipse forecast

The big day is nearly here: The Great American Eclipse will darken the sky from OR to SC on Monday.

The percentage of cloud cover in the Midlands is ranging between 44 and 63 percent, according to the National Weather Service's latest update on cloud cover chances come 2 p.m.

We will likely see some morning clouds, otherwise, a dry day can be expected for the Solar Eclipse! The next solar eclipse that will be visible throughout all of North America will be in 2024, and this is the first for us since 1979.

The overnight lows will be in the upper 70's and near 80 along the coast with inland spots in the middle 70's.

Monday's chances for scattered storms will diminish about sunset. "But we could start getting some afternoon cumulus clouds - lower clouds - and an outside chance of an isolated shower".

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

There's a tricky forecast leading up to the much anticipated solar eclipse, set to take place here in central in this afternoon. Rain could become heavy at times.




Maximum coverage will happen around 2:36 p.m. and cloud coverage will increase to about 40 percent by the time the event ends just after 4 p.m.

Heat indices for Monday are expected to reach between 100 and 105 degrees.

The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies - well, except when the sun happens to be obstructed by the moon.

Once the storms pass through the area we'll see a cold front move into Central Oregon.

Thursday night - Mostly cloudy with a low in the lower 60s.

Saturday: A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.
