Short summary
The Sinji Vrh Geomagnetic Observatory is situated on Gora above Ajdovščina, a highland karst plateau, in the southwestern part of Slovenia, and operates in exceptional geological and meteorological conditions due to its location. The measurements intended to determine the value of influences of weather fronts on the local magnetic field were carried out in January 2013. This article presents the results of these measurements, showing how the snowstorm induced changes in earth's magnetic field.
