Geomagnetic storm is expected

Geomagnetic field activity increased to a G3 (strong) geomagnetic storm as predicted on December 1. Currently, the Kp index is equal to 2, Shamakhi Astrophysical Observatory told APA. During the forecast days (04-11 December), the probability of occurrence of class C ignition is 99%, the probability of occurrence of class M (R1-R2) ignition is 40%, and the probability of occurrence of class X (R3) ignition is 5%. An electron flood with an energy of more than 2 MeV is likely to rise from the Coronal Hole on December 04-06 under the influence of High Velocity Streams. The proton flood with energy greater than 10 MeV is expected to remain at the background level. Source: Azeri-Press News Agency
