Solar activity on UT day 5 March was at very low levels with no
C-flare. The earth is currently under the possible influence of a
co-rotating interaction regions (CIR) associated with a small
equatorial coronal hole. The high speed streams following the CIR is
expected to elevate the solar winds to moderate levels over the next
48 hours (6-7 March). Therefore, on UT day 6 March, active geomagnetic
conditions and at times possibly reaching minor storm levels are
expected. There is a small chance that aurora may be visible from high
magnetic latitude regions of Australia, including Tasmania and some
parts of Victoria, on the local night of 6 March. HF conditions are
expected to be slightly higher than monthly predicted values over the
next 24 hours.
