The Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) is part of the National
Weather Service and is one of the nine National Centers for Environmental
Prediction. It is the nation's official source of
space weather alerts, watches and warnings. SWPC provides
real-time monitoring and forecasting of solar and geophysical
events which impact satellites, power grids, communications,
navigation, and many other technological systems. SWPC
also explores and evaluates new models and products and transitions
them into operations. SWPC
is also the primary warning center for the International Space
Environment Service and works with many national and international
partners with whom data, products, and services are shared.
