Met Office to offer daily space weather forecasts

The Met Office is to begin offering daily forecasts about the weather in space.
The 24 hour service will aim to help businesses and government departments by providing early warnings of solar storms that can disrupt satellites, radio communications and power grids.
The first forecast is expected to be available next spring.
The Department for Business will support the scheme with £4.6m of funding over the next three years.
The Met Office will aim to develop better ways of predicting space weather in collaboration with the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
