Some Scots are set to be able to see the northern lights this Valentine's Day, according to a space weather forecast from the Met Office.

In the forecast, the Meteorological Office said: "A couple of Coronal Mass Ejection glancing blows are possible later on 13th and during 14th, giving some enhancement to the auroral oval, although this is low confidence.

"There is a chance of aurora reaching northern Scotland, and just a slight chance of reaching further south to Northern Ireland and northern England."

While the chance of getting a clear look at the northern lights in Scotland is not absolute, even the slightest chance of seeing the natural wonder closeup is exciting.

With all this said, here are the BBC and Met Office forecasts for Scotland and how to see the event.

How to see the northern lights in Scotland this week

While there is no exact time when the northern lights could be visible in Scotland it is expected to be viewable in the north of the country.

Experts recommend that stargazers and those curious should consult their weather forecast and set up camp somewhere far away from the light pollution of towns and cities.

What is the Met Office weather forecast ahead of the northern lights' arrival in Scotland?

The Met Office predicts that the UK will experience clear spells throughout Monday and Tuesday (February 13 and 14) with patchy fog.

The report also states that while the southwest of Scotland and Northern Ireland may be clear, there is a high chance of patchy rain developing over the two regions.

On Tuesday, parts of northern Scotland are expected to be clear with a low chance of precipitation.
