Updated forecast great for tonight but waiting on data to improve

Tonight’s updated forecast is great for tonight but we are still waiting on data to improve. The forecast is Kp 5, but as of this post at 855pm Alaska time, the Kp level is 1. Kp 5 indicates that the predicted aurora may be seen further south: northern states bordering Canada, all of Canada, and all of Alaska. For Alaskans, this means a possible overhead show.

Clear skies in both Fairbanks and the Anchorage areas! This may be an all-nighter waiting for the aurora to make an appearance. Sneak a peek at the cams if you cannot go out. North Pole here and Wasilla here.
