(WXYZ) — The Northern Lights could be visible in Michigan this week, so look to the skies!

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Space Weather Prediction Center has issued a 24-hour magnetic storm watch after a coronal mass ejection may be heading toward earth.

The high-speed solar wind stream can cause the Northern Lights to be seen.

According to the NOAA, the best time to see them will likely be around midnight on March 31.

Michigan is currently in the KP=5 through KP=7 level, which means a good chance for Michigan to see it.
