Overcast skies, Kp 3

The weather is poor in Fairbanks. It’s wet and windy. Ice could form on the roadways. And the clouds are thick. The Kp level is 3, so if it were clear, we may have a pretty good show, in addition, our safety is more important.

Wasilla, Anchorage, Southeast are all showing overcast skies in the overnight forecast. The aurora forecast is pretty good. But viewing it will be a challenge. It will depend on the weather in your area of the state. A big show is not expected.

A brief aurora was seen in Delta tonight, but it is very windy. The aurora was also reported in parts of Canada tonight.

Solid clouds in Fairbanks, Anchorage has auroras!

Fairbanks: The sky appears green in some areas, there are very few breaks in the cloud cover. Accuweather states 98% cloud cover. The Kp level was up to a 7, and the speed and pressure were great for a show, so we missed out.

Anchorage, JBER, Kenai, Soldotna, Kodiak are enjoying the northern lights, mixed with clouds as of midnight. Potential for auroras into the night. Current Kp 4.

Auroras seen tonight:

USA: ME, NY, MI, WI, MN, MT, WY, ND, IN, OH, NH, VT

Canada: QC, ON, NS, AB, YT, NWT
