Northern Lights Might Be Visible In Chicago Tonight

DOWNTOWN — The aurora borealis might be visible in Chicago on Wednesday night.

The lights could be visible in Chicago on Wednesday and Thursday night, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. They’ll be particularly intense because of a strong geomagnetic storm.

Skies in Chicago will be partly cloudy on Wednesday, said Charles Mott, a National Weather Service meteorologist, but the cloud cover shouldn’t hamper potential viewing.

But you might want to head further north, as the city’s light pollution and tall buildings could make it more difficult to see the aurora, Mott said.

If you are heading outside, you might want a jacket: Temperatures will dip into the low 50s on Wednesday night and fall to 57 degrees on Thursday night, according to the National Weather Service.
