Ready for a mid-week pick me up? Look to the sky because tonight you might just be able to catch a glimpse of the Northern lights right here in Seattle. The stunning celestial event is happening for one night only. Let’s get into the details.

NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center issued a geomagnetic storm watch warning for, March 31st, a storm that will overtake today’s earlier G2 warning. Despite being issued for tomorrow, the storm is set to roll in later today and also peak later today. That means tonight is the night to see the northern lights in Seattle.

Now here’s the deal, the chance of seeing the lights is probable but the local forecast calls for cloud cover both tonight and Thursday. What does that mean? A big hindrance to seeing the lights. But if the clouds clear, it could mean Seattleites get a chance to see the sky aglow. Best of all, all you have to do to try your hand at seeing the lights is look towards the sky.

If you’re going to make it your mission to see the lights tonight, the Space Weather Prediction Center will continue to update its website with storm changes. Good luck out there!
