The northern lights stand a good chance of putting on a show in Ottawa Wednesday night and/or Thursday night.
Sadly, the weather forecast isn’t good.The forecast calls for a mix of clouds and clear sky, and possibly showers, both nights.
The good news is that while the aurora appears most often in the north, the space weather forecast says it should be visible this time as far south as Lake Erie and northern New York.
