— A solar storm could have an impact on Earth this morning.
NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory Satellite showed a coronal mass ejection occurring from Sunday night into Monday morning.
This solar flare is forecast to send a solar storm towards Earth, and according to computer models, the storm could impact around 8 a.m. Thursday.
The solar flare, classified as a long-duration C1.5 has warranted a G1 (Minor) Geomagnetic storm watch for Feb. 15, 2018.
While this storm is not expected to be large compared to past solar storms, it could still have an affect on Earth. Here are some things that COULD happen as a result of this storm:
Solar storms of this scale do happen fairly often, though not that affect Earth. Data suggests storms like this occur approximately 1,700 times per 11 years (per solar cycle) or 154 times per year, but rarely does it actually hit the Earth.

— Welcome to the Miami Valley! We’ve been stuck in an active weather pattern for about a week and that will continue this weekend as well.
If you are visiting or just making plans this weekend, here’s what you need to know.
1. It will be warm! Saturday highs will be around 80 degrees and Sunday we climb to the lower 80s. Dew points also will climb, which means it will feel a little humid this weekend as well.
2. There will be storms to track. This weekend won’t be completely dry, but there is a lot of dry time to enjoy! Saturday pop-up storms will be possible at any time but especially in the afternoon. The storms will be isolated in nature, so keep your eye to the sky because it might be sunny in one spot and stormy in another. Sunday most of the morning and afternoon looks dry. Some storms will develop again towards the evening hours.
3. Do you have allergies? The Miami Valley is known for being a struggle for allergy sufferers and this weekend there might not be much relief. We have noticed the tree pollen count has been dropping. This is a natural progression as we move through the middle of May. Grass pollen, though, is now picking up. The rain we see will help a little to keep the tree and grass pollen down. Watch the mold spores though, they can climb during a muggy and mild stretch.
