Cloudy skies over Scotland, Northern Ireland, North West England and North Wales could make the solar eclipse difficult to seeCloudy forecast: The solar eclipse may not be visible for all.
The long-awaited solar eclipse will plunge our skies into darkness this Friday – but will we be able to see it?
Looking at the latest weather report, the best chance of catching a glimpse now falls within a narrow area stretching from north east England, through Wales and south west England.
After a cloudy start to Monday, high pressure will build by Wednesday, bringing with it clearer skies and sunshine.
But, by Friday morning, low pressure is forecast to pass just north of Scotland and Northern Ireland, causing cloud cover, according to The Weather Channel UK spokesperson Leon Brown.
