The countdown is on. With just one week until the highly anticipated event, forecasters have released the early solar eclipse weather forecast for this day.

Will clouds spoil the viewing conditions? Here is an early look at this forecast.

Details of Total Solar Eclipse April 8

Millions of people in a large zone from Mexico and up into Canada will be in the path of totality for the solar eclipse April 8. As with any solar eclipse, the absence or presence of clouds will dictate the viewing conditions.

Although it is impossible to say with certainty where clouds may derail the spectacle, the event is close enough that forecasters can begin to make some early predictions.

It is important to note that the timing of the clouds will also determine the success of viewing parties. For instance, one stray batch of clouds could potentially ruin the spectacle if it moves past the sun at the time of the eclipse.

This means that even a mostly clear forecast does not guarantee that the conditions will be ideal to catch this display of Mother Nature.
