It seems unlikely that skies will clear at all tonight in the Finger Lakes.
Tuesday Evening Weather Forecast Update: Audio Transcript
This is Finger Lakes Weather meteorologist Drew Montreuil with your evening audio update for Tuesday, March 28, 2017.
A strong solar storm has been impacting Earth for the last day or two, resulting in some active Northern Lights at more southern latitudes. With no moon, it would be a perfect night for getting a glimpse of the Northern Lights in Upstate New York, but clouds and fog will prevent that from becoming a reality in the Finger Lakes.
Thick, low clouds and areas of dense fog are widespread across the region behind the weather system that brought showers to the region earlier today. These will continue this evening and overnight and skies will not clear until Wednesday morning. Once they do clear, though, Wednesday should be sunny.
Though the solar storm will be waning tomorrow, there still may be a chance that it will remain strong enough to give our region at least a chance at seeing the Northern Lights. More on this tomorrow! Have a good evening, and keep an eye to the sky, just in case the clouds break briefly.
