"There is a very active area on the sun as rotated onto the invisible solar disc. This active area has got the potential for more flaring for the next five to six days," space weather forecaster Kobus Olckers of the Space Weather Warning Centre at the Hermanus Magnetic Observatory told News24.




"The internet could be a little slower for the next week or so and especially long distance communications."

This will not cause the end of the world. You just want to get plenty of non-refrigerated food and plenty of bottled water once NASA says the solar storm is coming. If it's a not a big storm, then you do not need extra food and water. Just that we use electricity to run everything.

Thank you for the heads up - and for keeping calm without and OMG OMG END OF THE WORLD stuff.

Oh, and if we don't see you for a while, or you see me, har har - IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD!

Ok, so no, but I'm sure for a LOT o people - a solar flare that plinks out their internet will be freaking...

All in all let's think positive, have some back up food and water and some marshmallows just in case!

peace

My internet has been horrible lately. My signal has been so bad that I had to take my splitter out of line and run a direct connection to my modem or it wouldnt work. Now it could get slower?!

Also, looks like a good time to test my theory that solar flares drain my cell phone battery, lol. Which I guess COULD be possible if tower signals were weakened.

Man I hope it doesn't slow down the internet, my finals are this week and the college's online system is already lagging add on this....boo.
Thanks for the heads up on the flare though

Suppose to be 98 degrees here in North Carolina tomorrow with heat index around 125......never seen it like this in 59 yrs in the Month of May. The 95+ days usually never come till end of July and first of August. it's going to be a real hot summer..I see it coming.....

Does this mean that we might actually get up over 60 here in Washington???

Yayyyyyy!!!!!!!!!

It's refreshing to hear solar flares are coming and to stock up with food etc rather than "solar flares are coming its the end of the world".
Cheers for the heads up

No.
Solar flares do not affect weather.

Oh I agree!!

Its in the 90s here in Memphis and I have also told everyone that it will be a "Cruel, Cruel Summer"....

Last year many places saw temps in the 100's with heat indexes in the 115-125 range...

and its only getting hotter!

I think "warning" is a bit too strong of a word.

There is a 40% chance of an M class flares in the next three days, a 5% chance of X-class. An M class flare is of moderate strength and not much to be concerned about.

Solar flares can create problems with satellite communications but other than that they really don't affect us.

Class X 05/05/05

The same one I learned it from, I'm guessing: the textbook of Common Sense and General Knowledge.
Solar flares barely make a dent in the magnetosphere, let alone have any affect on the weather. And even the largest of CMEs (which, note, are not solar flares), which, given an absolute worst case scenario, can kill electronics at the surface, don't have any affect on the weather... especially not in increasing the temperature. The world's history of nuclear tests have likely had more of an impact on the weather than have solar flares and CMEs combined.

With one exception, we may be travelling through an alien patch of space, according to some recent posts, in which case, prepare for the best, expect the best, or is it the other way round?

Of course I meant prepare for the best and expect the worst, but that does not make sense either. Am I missing something, I mean, what is this alien bit of space? Anyone have a clue?

I think the phrase you're looking for is, "Hope for the best, prepare for the worst."

We will be fine.... if anything, we might be inconvenienced if there was a strong one. Expect this for quite a while, as the sun is in an active phase.....we will see a lot of these, and bigger ones. It can't make it hotter here on Earth.....only messes with satellites and other communications.

It sure is in interesting coincidence that when the sun has some big flares and large sunspots
that we have really warm weather..
Jus sayin

l

Its just the way you interpret affecting us

If that guys car gps stopped working he will be like
solar flare stop affecting me.
But more than that i dont think so.
Still trying to figure out if they could be a trigger for some earthquakes we see( disruptions in magnetic field=>earths core=>magma) analyse, analyse,...

There hasnt been any flare for so far in that area heading in our direction.
Previous flares from 11226 and 11227 werent facing earth.
We are just now coming in the line of those regions so any flares happening now from there will be heading towards earth
The only affect we might see is from the solar winds from ch451(28-29/05) that will take 4 days to reach us
