Sun Jun 12 10:09:50 EST 2016
Region 2552, which is currently located near the west limb of the Sun,
just (June 11/2228 UT) produced a strong, long duration C6.5 flare.
Based on the location of this sunspot region, it is unlikely that any
possible CME triggered by this flare will impact earth. Today (12
June) low to moderate solar activity with an isolated chance of
M-class flare is expected due to flaring potential from Region 2552.
The solar wind speeds were at moderately enhanced levels on 11 June,
between 400 km/s and 600 km/s, in response to the coronal hole
effects. However, Bz component of IMF was weak to cause any
significant geomagnetic disturbances despite the enhanced winds.
Mostly unsettled to active geomagnetic conditions are expected today.
High-frequency radio communication conditions over the Australian
regions are expected to be slightly depressed to near monthly
predicted levels today.
