Storm Category: G1 (Minor) to G3 (Strong)
Watch Begins: Wednesday, October 12, 2016
17:00 MDT

Duration: 72 Hours

Storm Watch Details:

•  The impact from an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection (CME) is expected to combine with an already geoeffective high-density solar wind stream on Thursday, October 13, resulting in possible G1 (Minor) to G3 (Strong) geomagnetic storm activity. Due to potential incremental effects associated with the CME impact, this event is capable of generating active auroral displays across Canada. Peak storm activity is expected to occur in the evening and overnight on Thursday. The Space Weather Prediction Centre at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has issued a 72-hour G1-G3 storm watch that will take effect at 5 p.m. MT on Wednesday, (October 12).
