Northern Indiana Aurora Watch: Dimmed Prospects for Northern Lights


Share post:

Fort Wayne, IN – Residents of northern Indiana, northwest Ohio, and southern Michigan may have to temper their expectations for tonight’s celestial show. 

Despite a severe G4 geomagnetic watch issued by the Space Weather Prediction Center—the first since 2005—which could make the northern lights visible as far south as Alabama to northern California, local conditions are less than ideal. 

According to the US National Weather Service in Northern Indiana, skies will start clear after sunset but will soon be marred by clouds and showers following midnight EDT due to an approaching cold front. 

This weather pattern not only dampens the viewing chances for the aurora tonight and early Saturday morning but also ushers in cooler temperatures with lows in the 40s. The forecast improves slightly on Sunday with mostly sunny skies early, followed by warmer conditions, though increasing clouds may lead to another round of showers and storms.
