Solar activity was very low over the last 24 hours and is expected to
continue to remain very low for the next 3 days with some possibility
of C-class activity. Solar wind stream is likely to gain strength from
today due to the effect of a coronal hole and a possible glancing blow
from the CMEs that were observed during late hours on 15 and early
hours on 16 November (UT day). Geomagnetic activity stayed mostly at
quiet to unsettled levels on 17 November (UT day). The coronal hole
and CME effects may raise geomagnetic conditions from quiet to minor
storm levels on 18 November. This rise in geomagnetic activity may
continue on 19 November. MUFs were mostly near predicted values on 17
November. Minor to moderate MUF depressions may be expected on 18 and
19 November, especially on high and some mid latitude locations due to
the expected rise in geomagnetic activity levels on these days. No
short wave fadeouts are expected.
