NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center has issued a geomagnetic storm watch into this week, with potentially epic northern lights starting Sunday night and possibly stretching through to Tuesday.
By Monday night, two merging coronal mass ejections (CEMs) are expected, resulting in a sudden increase of geomagnetic activity. This merger will likely produce a minor solar storm Monday and Tuesday, at which point, according to the Aurora borealis Notification network, northern light activity is highly likely.
SolarHarm, a website that specializes in the sun and how it affects the earth, projects that CEM flair activity will peak Monday night.
So keep an eye skyward because this weekend is expected to be a good one for most of the state.
