Magnetic storms will reach dangerous levels today and tomorrow. On January 27, the intensity of the hits will reach 5 points, and on January 28, geomagnetic fluctuations will subside to K-index 4 (orange hazard level).

According to the Meteoagent Center, a period of calm should follow after January 28, and no geomagnetic disturbances are expected. However, the forecast may still change, as it is impossible to predict the Sun's activity in advance.
