2024 Solar Eclipse in New England: Weather Hub

Updated: Apr 7

Welcome to the 2024 solar eclipse New England weather hub! This page will be updated daily in the evenings from March 25th through April 7th (so be sure to bookmark this page!). This page will give an overall outlook for the day as well diving into the expected and possible weather patterns and systems that will be around the northeast that day. You can also see our general climatology outlook for the eclipse here.

Daily update (last update April 7, 9:45pm): Trends have been toward a slightly faster arrival of high clouds across western New England. These clouds will move in from southwest to northeast in the afternoon. These clouds will be thin and shouldn’t block the sun, but rather be more of a filter. They also won’t likely take up the whole sky. Farther east along the path of totality, skies should remain mostly sunny. A backdoor cold front will drop into northern Maine in the afternoon, which could trigger some clouds, mainly across Aroostook County. The takeaway is that there may be a few clouds around in the afternoon, but, overall, conditions for eclipse viewing are very positive. Highs will be in the low to mid 60s in southern New England and the mid 50s to mid 60s in northern New England. The temperature could drop as much as 10° during totality.
