Scientists gave a forecast of magnetic storms for August. As evidenced data From the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency’s Space Weather Prediction Center, low to moderate solar activity is expected from August 1 to 27.
According to forecasts, the first magnetic storm of class G1, weak, is expected as early as August 3. Another similar event this month is expected on August 17th. The Earth’s magnetosphere will be excited on August 4-5 and 18-19.
The scientists also reported “unstable conditions” for sunny weather on August 6, 11-12 and 20. However, they note that this entire period is expected to be marked by low solar activity.
This is due to the fact that the regions of our star that turn towards the Earth are either inactive or the activity on them is slowing down.
However, the forecast for such a long term may not be accurate and may still change.
Remember July 30th Scientists have registered a new spot on the Sun, which has tripled in size in a day. It was expected that this spot could become a source of flares directed towards the Earth.
