NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colo. is the nation's official source of alerts, watches and warnings about space weather and its impacts.
The current forecast is for a "mild to moderate" geomagnetic storm to hit tomorrow morning, July 14. This geomagnetic storm could last into Sunday. (NOTE: there could be stronger geomagnetic storming conditions at specific regions in higher latitudes.)
Stronger geomagnetic storms can affect power systems, precision navigation, communications and other advanced technologies. The current event is unlikely to trigger any significant impacts.
If nighttime viewing conditions are clear, aurora could be visible Sat or Sunday nights from lower-latitude areas than usual, possibly as far south as the northern states of Maine and Minnesota, but more likely into Canada.
