      Will Mother Nature ruin the solar eclipse with cloudy skies? Maybe.

      A weak system in northern Illinois will produce scattered storms overnight. Storms should taper off by morning, giving way to midday clearing. Mostly sunny skies will kick off the eclipse around 1 PM. By the time the eclipse peaks at 2:25 PM, isolated storms may roll into the area. These storms will remain highly scattered and short-lived, meaning that your personal viewing might not be impacted. 

      Our best chance for rain and storms will arrive late Monday night into Tuesday. Heavy rainfall poses the greatest threat, but small hail and gusty winds are also possible. Severe weather is unlikely.

      Wednesday will begin a sunny and cool stretch of weather! Mostly sunny skies with highs in the 70s and low humidity will last through the weekend. This will be quite the tease of fall!
