Aurora Dec 9th or 10th

I’m wondering whether the odds of seeing an Aurora from low latitudes are better on the 9th or 10th. 
All the news articles say 9th, but the SWPC’s storm watches seem to indicate more activity on the 10th. Sadly, I may not be able to look both nights, so I’m wondering which is better. Thanks.

Indeed, like Sander pointed out. The CME is much weaker than anticipated and the Bz direction of the IMF is mostly northward which is bad for enhanced geomagnetic activity. I doubt we will see a significant shift in activity in the hours ahead which could cause storm conditions later tonight but hope I am wrong.
