If you are interested in seeing a meteor shower you are in luck! The only thing is that you will have to stay up til midnight or 1 AM tonight or get up before dawn Tuesday. 

The Lyrid Meteor Shower is taking place for the next few nights, through April 25, and will be visible between about midnight and dawn in the northeast sky. Roughly 15 to 20 meteors will likely be shooting across the sky radiating out of the constellation Lyra. 

In order to give yourself the best view of the meteor shower, you will want to stay away from city lights/light pollution in general and again look towards the northeast sky to have the best chance of seeing the shower.

The sky should be clear enough at times to view the show, but there could be scattered clouds and areas of fog that could obscure your view in spots/at times. You will also want to grab the jacket if you will be heading out as temperatures will be in the 40s for most late tonight.
