Solar activity on UT day 3 March was at very low levels with no
notable flares. The solar wind was at elevated levels of almost 500
km/s during the past 24 hrs in response to a northern hemisphere
coronal hole. The solar wind conditions are expected to trend towards
ambient levels in the next 24 hours. An eruptive
filament,approximately 10 degrees long, was observed near the solar
centre (~S10W05) at about 03/1419 UT. Inspection of the SDO imagery
reveals that this event has triggered a Coronal Mass Ejections (CME).
Based on the location of the erupting filament and the trajectory of
the CME, this event may have an impact at earth. Updates on this
events will be provided when the LASCO coronagraph imagery data is
made available. HF conditions are expected to be near monthly
predicted values for the next 24 hours.
