Weather Alert

Solar flares could be visible across KLGR-land throughout the week

A solar flare could make the Northern Lights visible throughout the KLGR-area tonight through Friday night.

According to Redwood Falls weather observer Jon Markuson,  “A CME shock is to arrive and the most significant phase of the geomagnetic storm will hit Earth. This could be the biggest we have had in three years.

The Space Weather Prediction Center in Colorado says the aurora borealis should be visible across the northern United States, from Washington to Maine, dipping as far south as Iowa. The geomagnetic storm will peak late tonight into early Thursday.

Meteorologists recommend viewers get away from city light pollution that could impact what you see.
