A weak weather front will be moving down across the UK during Friday morning.
This will introduce quite a cloudy morning across Wirral during the time of the eclipse, so you may not see it.
The best we can hope for at the moment is breaks in cloud on Friday morning to give us a glimpse.
A Met Office spokesman has commented on what Wirral will experience if cloud does completely ruin our view:
They said: “People will still be able to see it get darker. You will be able to feel it and sense it but you might not be able to see it.
“It will be a gradually darkness and there will be no actual atmospheric changes to conditions.”
If cloud does block our view, then we will have to wait another 11 years for the next eclipse.
The next eclipse of similar magnitude will take place on August 12, 2026, with 95 per cent of the sun obscured.
However, if it is too cloudy its not the end of the world, the BBC will be broadcasting an eclipse special of stargazing live.
