Officials at the Space Weather Prediction Center have confirmed multiple geomagnetic storms are set to hit Earth this week.

This suggests that some of these explosions have been ignited toward Earth, which suggests that we will have to brace for some solar storms.

A solar flare, also known as a Coronal Mass Injection (CME), is a frequent occurrence, and not all of which are heading toward Earth, but when they are, they have the power to be destructive.

The National Oceanic And Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Space Weather Prediction Center and the UK Met Office have issued guidance on moderate to moderate geomagnetic storms over the next couple of days.

NOAA has predicted there is 80 percent chance of the storm hitting Britain, and there is the chance of a hurricane anywhere, anywhere.

Based on the polar weather preview of the space weather, the Kp-Index of geomagnetic activity in space reached peaks of Kp 6 and Kp 5 on 14 and 15 March.

Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) are huge plasma burst on the sun’s surface.



Storm

A storm is any disturbed state of an environment or in an astronomical body’s atmosphere especially affecting its surface, and strongly implying severe weather. (wikipedia)


Geomagnetic storm

A geomagnetic storm is a temporary disturbance of the Earth’s magnetosphere caused by a solar wind shock wave and/or cloud of magnetic field that interacts with the Earth’s magnetic field. (wikipedia)
