Get ready for another blitz of auroral activity on Friday.

NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center and the University of Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Institute have both updated their auroral activity forecasts and predict a geometric storm could impact some of New York State on Friday, June 28.

The University of Alaska Fairbanks uses a geomagnetic index, known as Kp, which rates the likelihood of auroral activity between 0 and 9. The higher the number, the more likely they are.

Currently, Kp is set at a 4, which signals "moderate" activity.

The NOAA also updated its forecast map to show the probable "view line" of tonight's expected show.

Sadly, just the tippity top of Upstate New York is favored to be a part of the view line, but it is possible nearby regions could catch some auroral activity.
