Blue skies, bright sun--and snow?

Looking out the front window towards Anchorage at 8pm, there's not a cloud in the sky and it's going to be a gorgeous sunset--but behind the house is a wall of cloud sitting on the ridge of the Chugach Mountains and the wind driven snow is making it all the way to the house.  Gorgeous with the backlit sun, but it needs to clear up because we're supposed to have very strong aurora tonight.
