Nothing is expected to block the view of Monday's historic solar eclipse.

The forecast calls for "promising weather" when the event takes place at 11:47 a.m., KKTV meteorologist Emily Roehler said in a report. The moon is expected to hide about 90 percent of the sun above Colorado Springs.

The eclipse will begin at 10:23 a.m.

The city could see a high near 82 degrees Monday with partly sunny skies, according to the National Weather Service in Pueblo. A slight chance of rain could come in the afternoon.

Otherwise, the regional forecast calls for "toasty with dry to mainly dry conditions," Roehler said.

A change could come Tuesday, when temperatures are expected to drop into the 70s with possible rain.
