Space Weather

This is a new segment that Macon Media will be testing for possible inclusion as an everyday or weekly addition to the Daily Weather Briefing.

IMAGE

The Earth is beginning to exit a stream of solar wind that has been buffeting our planet’s magnetic field since Jan. 31st. The stream is a wide one, so the exit will be slow. Solar wind speeds are expected to remain near 500 km/s through Feb. 4th, boosting the chances of Arctic auroras.
