Potential to see Northern Lights this weekend across Great Lakes region
POSTED 4:23 PM, MARCH 22, 2019, BY NATASHA ANDERSONNORTHEAST OHIO — Have you ever wanted to see the Northern Lights? You may get a chance to see them right here in northeast Ohio Friday or Saturday night.
According to the U.S. National Weather Service of Cleveland, the Space Weather Prediction Center has issued a G2 Moderate Geomagnetic Storm Watch.
This means that the Northern Lights may extend down to the Great Lakes region late Friday and Saturday nights.
FOX 8 Meteorologist André Bernier says that although there is potential to see the lights here in northeast Ohio, the sun has to send the right output our way. André says that based on our current forecast, the skies should be clearer Saturday night which is looking like our best chance to see them. However, he reiterates that seeing the lights is just a possibility.
