Solar eclipse forecast looks promising for Boston, New England

Early forecasts are looking good for the rare, total solar eclipse that will pass over parts of New England on Monday and bring a near-total eclipse to Massachusetts.

While we’re expecting rain and even some snow this week, StormTeam 5 meteorologists said that the long-range forecast models are indicating mostly sunny skies for April 8. While some clouds may be present over the Boston area, the chances for precipitation are low and temperatures could be in the upper 50s.

Mostly sunny skies are also expected in Northern New England, where an influx of eclipse chasers are expected to travel to reach the path of totality.

Total eclipses happen about every 18 months, but often, they cross over remote areas where few people see them. This will be the first total eclipse to plunge millions of people in North America into midday darkness since Aug. 21, 2017. That event brought a 63% eclipse to Massachusetts.

Parts of 13 states will be in the path of totality this time: Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

Skywatchers in the Boston area will see a 93% eclipse on Monday.
