This is a new product that I have been watching from Tropical Tidbits Climate Models. This is not a forecast but just an 'outlook'. Keep in mind, the 7 day period is the average of those days with some days above the values and other could be below the values. This is used to get a better idea as to what to expect (maybe).

Heavenly Backyard Astronomy

The Horsehead Nebula
February 7, 2019 ... 10pm to 12am ...
The 'Horsehead' Nebula is about 1,500 light-years away and the horse's head is mainly a large dust cloud obscuring the stars and nebulous gasses. The red color originates from hydrogen gas predominantly behind the nebula, ionized by a nearby bright star to the upper right, Sigma Orionis. This nebula is very dim and took well over an hour to expose. This exposure was 1hr 48mn in length using 36 subframes at 180 second each. This is through the big 11" Celestron telescope at f/10. It is clear to me that I need to add more exposure time to capture this faint object.
