A geomagnetic storm is approaching

The sun might affect the weather in the future, so a severe watch will be in place to protect us until then.

Due to the sun’s potential to influence the weather, a geomagnetic storm watch will be in effect until the end of the week.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, a solar wind field is predicted to produce modest geomagnetic storm conditions on Wednesday, when a recurring coronal hole high-speed stream from the sun is projected to intersect with Earth.

The arrival at or proximity to Earth of many coronal mass ejections (CMEs) that have left the Sun since August 14 is expected to cause geomagnetic responses to intensify to G3 (Strong) conditions on August 18, according to a NOAA warning. Despite the large number of CMEs, most are predicted to have little to no impact on Earth; nevertheless, at least four of them may have components that are Earth-directed.

According to NOAA, a geomagnetic storm is a significant disruption caused by “variations in the solar wind that creates large changes in the currents, plasmas, and fields in Earth’s magnetosphere.”

If necessary, forecasters at the Space Weather Prediction Center will be able to issue public alerts thanks to NOAA’s satellite, which can identify coronal mass ejections as they approach Earth. The National Environmental Satellite Data and Information Service states that the DSCOVR satellite, which was put into orbit in February 2015, “maintains the nation’s real-time solar wind monitoring capabilities.”

The most recent geomagnetic storm to be recorded took place in February. 40 freshly deployed Starlink internet satellites were destroyed by the storm. SpaceX launched a total of 49 satellites into orbit on February 3, but a geomagnetic storm over Earth marginally increased atmospheric density the following day, increasing drag on the satellites and prompting 40 of them to reenter Earth’s orbit, according to Space.com.
