Solar activity has been at very low levels over the last 24 hours. As
per the previous anticipations, solar wind speed showed gradual
increase to around 600 km/s during late hours today due to the arrival
of a high speed solar wind stream from a recurrent coronal hole. Solar
wind stream is expected to remain strong on 15 and most parts of 16
March due to this effect. Very low levels of solar activity, with some
possibility of isolated C class activity, may be expected on 15 March.
Geomagnetic activity increased to active levels during late hours on
14 March due to the coronal hole effect. This effect may further
enhance geomagnetic activity to minor storm levels on 15 and at times
on 16 March. Mostly normal HF conditions were observed during the last
24 hours. Minor to significant degradations in HF conditions and
depressions in MUFs may be observed on 15 and 16 March in response to
the anticipated elevations in geomagnetic activity.
