Solar activity was at very low levels during the last 24 hours. As
expected, solar wind stream gained strength during this period. Solar
wind speed increased from ~460 to above 700 km/s today (8 May). Solar
activity may be expected to stay at very low levels during the next
three days (9, 10 and 11 May) with some possibility of isolated
C-class event. The coronal hole effect may keep the solar wind stream
strong for the next three days. Geomagnetic activity increased to
minor storm levels on 8 May with isolated major storm periods. Due to
the coronal hole effect nearly similar conditions may be expected on 9
and 10 May. Geomagnetic activity may start to show some weakening from
11 May. Minor to mild MUF depressions were observed in midlatitude
regions today. Further degradation in HF conditions and depressions in
MUFs are possible from 9 to 11 May, especially at mid and high
latitude locations as geomagnetic activity is expected to remain
enhanced on these days.
