This week our star really turns up the volume with numerous solar flares and solar storm launches all within the Earth-strike zone.

There are at least two, if not three solar storms on their way, which are expected to hit later today.

We could reach the G2-level by May 26 and continue storming until the weekend.

This means lingering aurora views are quite possible at mid-latitudes, in fact aurora chasers should have many chances to catch a show.

Although region 2824, which has been both an M-flare player and a solar storm producer over this past week has finally calmed down a bit, amateur radio operators and emergency responders should still expect an elevated radio noise floor the rest of this week.

Once the storms hit, expect radio propagation and GPS reception to be impacted as well, especially on Earth’s nightside and near dawn and dusk. Learn the details of the recent big flares, find out more about the coming solar storms, including where aurora will be visible and how the storms will impact radio communications and GPS reception, and see what else our Sun has in store!
