Low to Moderate solar flare activity expected as current active region

Active levels due to the current low speed solar wind but sustained
southward Bz that is evident of a slow moving CME from possible
filament or flare activity early in the week. Active to Minor storm
geomagnetic conditions possible with expected arrival of a Coronal
Hole high speed solar wind stream over the next 24 hours. Short-wave
radio fadeouts possible. High-frequency radio communications fair to
normal at all latitudes. Aurora sightings possible from southernmost
Australian regions should coronal hole effects eventuate.
