The NOAA space weather forecast puts the chances of a minor storm of northern lights for middle latitudes at 20% tonight. As of 7:30 p.m. Central Time the Kp index, a useful indicator of potential auroral activity, bounced up to “4″, a level below minor storm.
If the index moves into the red – “5″ or higher – that would be a hopeful sign.
I’m not saying we’re going to get auroras tonight just that the possibility exists. If they’re minor, not much may be visible anyway because the full moon comes up near the end of twilight. You may want to take a look all the same. Good luck!
