Moderate (G2) Geomagnetic Storm In Progress, G2 Warning Extended

03/27/2017

NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) reports a moderate (G2) level geomagnetic storm is in progress. The G2 threshold was reached on March 27 at 1948 UTC.

SWPC forecasters have extended the G2 Geomagnetic Storm Warning until March 28 at 0300 UTC, as coronal hole high-speed stream effects continue to influence Earth. A large, Earth-facing canyon-shaped hole in the Sun’s atmosphere is spewing a stream of solar wind toward the planet.

Visible auroral displays could descend from the Arctic Circle to northern-tier US states from New York to Wisconsin to Washington.

  1. The magnetic storm doesn’t seem to be affecting me here in Rome. I’m hearing an Iraqi station at the moment.
    Amazing what you can hear (and talk to) over here, as compared to NYC. Italian hams have been very friendly/helpful too. And the Roman hams seem to be much more active than their NY counterparts. Well… it is the home of Marconi!
