Aurora Alert Tonight…If Skies Are Clear

By · January 24, 2012 at 2:36 pm

The largest solar radiation storm since 2003 is underway right now and that could mean a view of the Northern Lights if skies are clear enough.  The best chances are in northern latitudes, but a weaker storm back on October 24th brought Hoosiers a rare glimpse of the Aurora Borealis.  The question for tonight: will skies clear enough, and pesky clouds have been slow to clear.  But if it’s clear where you are tonight…look to the heavens!

We’ll be tracking some rain for tomorrow that could at times mix with some wet snowflakes.  For now, it looks like the rain may try to move in as early as tomorrow afternoon with the best chance tomorrow night into Thursday.  Here in Central Indiana, 1/4 to 1/2″ of rain looks possible with the heavier amounts to the south.

The rain should move out from northwest to southeast through the day Thursday.  By the time the storm moves out of Southeastern Indiana, some spots there could pick up 1 to 2″ of rain!

Our extended outlook doesn’t have any Arctic blasts or big storms, but we could see some flurries this weekend along with cool temperatures. In the next day or two, we’ll be able to provide you our first forecasts for Super Bowl Weekend!

Take Care!
