USA TO­DAY

Most of the na­tion should see fairly quiet weather Mon­day for the Great Amer­i­can Eclipse, the Na­tional Weather Ser­vice said.

Folks in a nar­row swath of land from Ore­gon to South Carolina will see the to­tal eclipse, while most of the rest of North Amer­ica will see a par­tial eclipse.

The cloud­i­est spots should be the Up­per Mid­west and the South­east, the weather ser­vice pre­dicts.

The cloudy skies in the Up­per Mid­west will be be­cause of a storm that’s fore­cast to push through the re­gion, while the view in the South­east could be marred by thun­der­storms.

Morn­ing low clouds could also fill skies in coastal ar­eas of Wash­ing­ton, Ore­gon and Cal­i­for­nia, Ac­cuWeather said. But most of the West should have clear or mostly clear skies.

Other ar­eas where sunny skies are ex­pected in­clude most of Texas, the Ohio Val­ley and por­tions of the North­east, Ac­cuWeather said. Else­where, hi­tor-miss clouds are likely. That in­cludes ar­eas along the Mis­sis­sippi River in much of Mis­souri and western Ken­tucky, where the long­est to­tal eclipse oc­curs.
