What will the weather be like on April 8, 2024? That will be the question on the minds of millions of people over the next two years leading up to a spectacular total solar eclipse. The weather does not look good for New England based on the average cloud cover across the country in early April, the southern U.S. has the best chance of having cloud-free weather on April 8. The odds of it being cloudy on this day increase farther north and east based on climatology. April 8, 2024, will be the only chance to see a total solar eclipse from a large area of the contiguous U.S. until 2045, making it one of the must-see astronomy events of the decade.
