A recent solar storm has raised concerns about the potential impact on hurricane activity in the upcoming season. A new study by Yang Wang, published in The Daily Mail, reveals that solar activity has a complex role in modulating tropical cyclone activity. When the sun releases energized particles that reach Earth, they bring solar energy that heats the oceans, creating conditions conducive to hurricane formation.

Solar energy can also heat the upper atmosphere, reducing temperature differences that impact atmospheric circulation and the development of tropical cyclones. However, as oceans warm due to increased solar energy, they have more energy available to fuel tropical cyclone wind formation. This can create more favorable conditions for stronger storms. However, the heating of the upper atmospheric layers can counteract this effect by weakening vertical motion within developing cyclones and causing shifts in circulation patterns.

The study found that during 11 time periods throughout history, there was a 40 percent increase in storms compared to other periods when solar activity was high. This suggests that solar activity plays a significant role in modulating tropical cyclone activity and should be closely monitored during this year’s hurricane season.
