THE Northern Lights could be visible across Worcestershire tonight, according to experts. 

Experts at AuroraWatch UK, a service which predicts when it is likely people will be able to see the northern lights, have confirmed they may be visible tonight. 

They are likely to be visible at intervals between 1am and 7am - unfortunately the red alert will be at 2pm on Saturday - but it will be too light to see.

What is the weather like in Worcester tonight?

Tonight, Worcester is expected to have fewer clouds above as the evening progresses, according to the Met Office. 

Clouds are expected to disperse at around 9pm in Worcester. 

People enjoyed seeing the aurora borealis over the county last month with stunning images captured in places such as Worcester, Malvern, Drakes Broughton and the observational tower at Croome Court. 

What are the Northern Lights?

The Northern Lights are typically seen nearer to the Arctic Circle in locations such as Norway and Iceland and it is rare to see them in the UK. 

They are caused by particles from the sun entering the Earth's atmosphere at high speed. 

And, of course, that also depends on the weather and cloud coverage.
