Source - Space Weather News for April 12, 2016: http://spaceweather.com

EARTH ENTERS SOLAR WIND STREAM: A G1-class geomagnetic storm is in progress on April 12th as Earth enters a stream of fast-moving solar wind.  NOAA forecasters estimate a 70% chance of additional storming on April 13th as Earth moves deeper into the stream.  Also, a minor CME from big sunspot AR2529 could deliver a glancing blow to Earth's magnetic field on April 13th, further boosting the odds of storminess.
