    Short answer:  Yes
    
    Longer answer:  ISS Inclination is around 57 degrees thus the highest latitude
    where it is overhead is 57 degrees.  You are north of this and it is 
    approaching
    summertime so the sun is high.  Does not mean that it will never happen but
    chances are likely reduced.
