Geomagnetic Storm Tonight; Northern Lights Could Be Seen as Far South as Raleigh

Tonight is the night, as we could see the Aurora Borealis tonight as far south as Raleigh if skies happen to clear out. Unfortunately there still could be lingering clouds associated with a cutoff low.

Below is the map of the expected extent of viewable northern lights starting tonight:

Here are some advisories warning of potential impacts to our systems here on Earth mainly way up north:

Big time Northern Lights show tonight brought to you by the G3 Geomagnetic Storm from the sun. If the skies clear out, most folks north of I-40 in the US may see this tonight after 8 PM EDT but will very faint over the Mid-Atlantic. Expect a possible repeat Sunday night. –Brought to you by our brother page WxSynopsis.
