Weather conditions in the Shoals appear to be lining up for a good viewing opportunity of today's solar eclipse.

Overall, the weather service said, there is a 40 percent chance of thick clouds today from about North Platte east into the Omaha area and southwest Iowa. Early on, look for mostly sunny skies before clouds start to bubble up throughout the afternoon hours. We're not talking overcast skies, but a few clouds will develop with some higher thin clouds rolling in from a couple storm complexes to our west and northwest. Rain chances should be fairly low, but a late day shower or storm can't be ruled out.

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

While the total solar eclipse won't be visible to everyone, the entire country will be able to take in at least a partial eclipse.

"There's a warm front moving through the area and there could be some scattered showers and thunderstorms", he said. Generally, clouds will be increasing today - out ahead of tonight's heavy rain. The eclipse begins at 12:03PM in Montgomery, peaks at 1:34PM at a 90% eclipse of the sun, then ends at 3:00PM when we will see the sun in full again.

The probability of rain is about 23 percent Monday in the Wyandotte County area. Sunday is more humid with a mix of sun and some clouds. Enhanced afternoon thunderstorm coverage continues next weekend, with upper 80s to lower 90s for high temps. However, as of Thursday, most places reported being out of stock.

Scattered to isolated showers remain in the forecast for Friday and Saturday.
