[ips-sf] IPS Summary Forecast for 15 May - issued 0001UT/15-May-2016 [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

Sun May 15 10:01:02 EST 2016

Low solar flare activity. Light to moderate solar wind. The
geomagnetic conditions are expected to be mostly unsettled and at
times could reach minor storm levels. This is due to the expected
arrival of the co-rotating interaction region (CIR) and subsequent
high speed solar wind streams associated with the approaching large
northern hemisphere coronal hole. There is chance the aurora will be
visible from high magnetic latitude regions of Australia (Tasmania and
some parts of Victoria) on the local night of 15 May. High-frequency
radio communications fair to normal at low to mid latitudes with
isolated degraded conditions at high latitudes.
