The biggest astronomical event of the decade is inching closer and all eyes are on the forecast heading into Monday's total solar eclipse.

There are approximately 31.6 million Americans in the path of totality for the spectacle, however, millions more are expected to travel to catch a glimpse.

Will weather impact the travel to and from the best viewing locations? Here is what forecasters are predicting for the solar eclipe weather forecast in the coming days.

Impacts of Weather on Eclipse

The weather is certainly going to play a role in both the travel and viewing conditions surrounding the April 8 solar eclipse.

Significant cloud cover is expected for a large part of the path of totality on Monday, likely hampering the ability to see the full impacts of the eclipse. The chance of severe weather in the days leading up to the event and just after the show may also disrupt travel plans.

Lastly, forecasters warn that the chances of storms could pose dangers for the millions of people gathered outside on Monday.

With so many people expected to camp outside near the zone of totality, the presence of storms could be a significant risk for those without easily accessible shelter.
