The Lyrid meteor shower is set to peak tonight (April 22). The meteors will streak away from a point in the sky (the shower's radiant) near the bright star Vega, which will be high in the eastern sky before dawn.
The weather forecast is promising throughout that period, with clear skies expected, but the moon will be in waning gibbous phase and likely will wash out most of the meteors. The Lyrids can produce up to 18 meteors per hour, with occasional fireballs.

Typically, the Lyrid meteor shower can showcase between 10 and 20 meteors per hour during the peak, but it's hard to estimate how many will be visible.
