Forecast Geomagnetic (Kp) Index


About this Plot

  • Bars: Forecast Kp index from the SWPC
  • Filled Circles:Moon phase and normalized sky position
  • Ovals: MOS Cloud Forecast
  • Dashed Line:Current Time
The short term Kp forecast is updated twice daily. The long term forecast is updated weekly on Mondays and forecasts possible effects of features like coronal holes and CIRs. The long term forecast will likely not accurately reflect acute solar events such as Earth directed CMEs. Cloud cover, moon phase, and moon rise/set time are valid for Glens Falls, NY. The long term Kp shows the maximum expected Kp index for a given day.

Quick Looks!
