An aurora may be visible in some parts of the Northern Hemisp after a possible geomagnetic storm Wednesday, according to the Space Weather Prediction Center.
The SWPC has predicted strong geomagnetic storming Wednesday followed by a minor storming watch for New Year’s Eve.
G3 geomagnetic storming could affect satellite and low-frequency radio navigation, according to the SWPC. The aurora may be visible as far south as Illinois and Oregon.
The SWPC predicted G3 storming for early Wednesday morning, around 7 a.m. EST, but the geomagnetic storming may occur later than expected.
Aurora displays may be visible around northern Michigan or Maine.
