The Earth is set to be hit by another solar flare this week, following several occurences of that happening over the past month.

Experts from the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) have stated that the solar storm will be at a G2-G3 level on a scale of G1 to G5, where one is the weakest and five has the most potential for damage.

On its website the SWPC said: "G1 storm levels continue to be met and solar wind conditions remain elevated and enhanced, maintaining the potential for additional periods of G2-G3 level storms."

This could potentially cause geomagnetic disruption, such as power grid fluctuations, although the UK has mostly avoided such activity.

The only exception is when a powercut occurred in Wales on Halloween after a solar flare was visible just after 6pm.

This solar flare is expected to hit on Thursday November 4 or Friday November 5.

Additionally, this particular CME, (Coronal Mass Ejection), is known as a "halo CME", so-called because the solar storm cloud associated with the ejection appears to form an expanding halo all the way around the Sun. 

Will the UK see some Aurora with this latest solar flare?

A statment on from the Met Office's website about space weather said that the UK might be able to see some Aurora once more.

It read: "The auroral oval is expected to be enhanced through much of the early period following the arrival of the Earth directed CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) which gave a Severe geomagnetic storm on the 4th [November].

"CME effects are expected to subside, but persist into the 5th [November]. Aurora may be visible across Northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and perhaps parts of the Midlands, Norfolk and North Wales with the naked-eye at first where skies are clear."
