The earth is currently under the possible influence of a co-rotating
interaction regions (CIR) associated with a equatorial coronal hole.
The solar wind densities have enhanced by an order of magnitude during
the last 12 hours. Minor geomagnetic storm conditions are possible in
high and mid-latitude regions of Australia within the next 24 hours.
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. The impact of the coronal
hole effects on earth depends on the orientation of the IMF Bz
