The eclipse, set to be the biggest since August 1999, will begin in the UK at 8.45am on Friday (March 20) and peak at 9.31am.
But according to forecasters, the weather is set to be mixed, and rain could dampen your chances of seeing the spectacle.
Laura Young, spokeswoman at the Met Office, said: “From the middle of this week the forecast is quite uncertain.
"At the beginning of the week high pressure will bring in settled conditions, but at the moment we don’t know when that high pressure will start to move.
“By Friday it’s looking like occasional spells of rain and strong winds could become increasingly more likely in the North West.”
All of England will see coverage of 80%, and in Scotland more than 90% of the sun will be obscured.
