Kp 5 is forecast tonight March 14-16

There is a G1 watch issued for March 14 and the next couple of nights.
Kp 5 possible.
As of this post at 830pm Alaska time, the data is looking poor. Things could change rapidly though.
Weather forecast may hinder viewing.

*Fairbanks, Alaska weather calls for snow showers and cloudy skies the next couple days. YOU MUST CHASE THE WEATHER TO SEE AURORAS. Look at the weather forecast and radar for surrounding areas and determine if driving away from Fairbanks will be best.* Roads are “ok”, and pullouts have been plowed previously. Check for current road conditions. Alternatively, you can book an aurora tour, and they will advise if they are chasing the aurora by driving away from the weather. If you would like a stress free aurora watching time, and you are on your dream trip, hiring a tour guide is a GREAT IDEA. Try The Aurora Chasers or SkyFire in Focus tours for aurora viewing. I am not sure if there are last minute openings.

Anchorage weather snow and clouds tonight but tomorrow night clear.
Whitehorse weather clouds tonight and partly cloudy tomorrow night.
