The forecast of solar and geomagnetic activity for

February 26-28

, 2024 was published by the Space Weather Prediction Center of the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Geomagnetic storms are classified by the level of power — the K-index — from 2 to 9. The higher the K-index, the stronger the storm and its consequences and impact on people and equipment.

Note that the forecast may change, as researchers of solar activity update their data every three hours.

On February 26,

geomagnetic activity with a K-index of 4 (yellow level) is expected, which corresponds to a strong magnetic storm capable of having a tangible impact on people's well-being.

On February 27 and 28,

solar activity is expected to decrease to K-index 3 (green level) - moderate geomagnetic activity.

We will remind you that earlier we wrote about whether flares on the Sun and magnetic storms can affect human health.
