National Weather Service predicts clear skies for eclipse

While thick clouds and rainfall obscured most of the Chicago area Sunday, experts said weather conditions will not hinder those looking to see the total solar eclipse Monday in Illinois.

“Skies should be mostly clear, with little to no clouds obstructing the view in the Chicago metro area,” Rafal Ogorek, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Chicago, said. “Rainfall is expected to end in the evening.”

While Chicagoans will experience about 94% eclipse coverage, parts of southern Illinois and central Indiana will be in the path of totality, where the moon will completely block the sun.

“Between Chicago and the path of totality there shouldn’t be any really notable weather impacts,” Ogorek said. “There might be a few more clouds down south, closer to the path of totality.”
