How far south the lights will be visible is still uncertain, but it is possible sky watchers in northern New Jersey and upstate NY could catch a glimpse, said Patrick O'Hara, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service's regional office in New Jersey.

While the weather could spoil the show, Bonnie did say much of Scotland will have a clear view of the natural spectacle.

The Met Office's Space account tweeted: "CME forecast to arrive late 23rd March following C5 flare from sunspot AR2736". The strength of a geomagnetic storm is measured on something called the Kp index.

"This will pair with completely clear skies", wrote meteorologist Joe Charlevoix on Twitter.

The aurora borealis should be visible across the northern tier of states, dipping as far as south as Iowa in the middle of the country and Washington and ME on the coasts.
