Minnesota residents and skywatching enthusiasts are in for a potential treat as the space weather forecast suggests a heightened possibility of witnessing the Northern Lights on Monday night.
The National Weather Service in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, conveyed the promising news via a tweet on Sunday, stating, “The Space Weather Prediction Center is indicating that the potential for a geomagnetic storm has increased for Monday into Tuesday. This means a greater chance of northern lights over North America.”
