Low-Latitude Auroras

My skies aren't that dark and are usually covered with clouds this time of year, so I would be hard pressed to see them. But then, if this estimate for the extent of viewable auroras from the current storm is accurate, I am not far north enough to see them at 45 degrees latitude on the West Coast:
