Solar Flux Rises as Coronal Holes Bring Aurora | Solar Storm Forecast 03.14.21

This Space Weather News forecast sponsored in part by Millersville University:
This week our star continues to ramp up activity with more fast solar wind and some new bright regions. The fast solar wind has already brought aurora down to mid-latitudes over the past few nights and more is to come! In addition, another coronal hole will soon be rotating into the Earth-strike zone, which will bring more aurora chances. Amatuer radio operators are also enjoying a small boost in solar flux due to several new bright regions on the Earth-facing Sun. One of these, region 2808 is helping the most and is even firing small flares on and off. In addition, we have yet another large bright region that will rotate into view from the Sun’s farside in a few days and that will ensure the solar flux dstays in the high 70s to low 80s. This means we will continue to be well into marginal radio propagation conditions over this week, and likely into next. The only issue will be the ongoing mild storming on Earth’s nightside due to the fast solar wind. This will affect radio propagation and GPS reception a bit, easily throughout the week. Learn the details of the fast solar wind, catch up on recent aurora from the ongoing solar storms, and see what else our Sun has in store!
