A large positive polarity coronal hole has taken geoeffective position
on the solar disk. As a result, today (28 September) solar winds are
expected to reach very high levels of near 700 km/s. If the
Interplanetary Magnetic Field (IMF) turned southward for prolonged
period, the earth could experience major storm conditions. Thus there
is chance that aurora may be visible at the local night, today, from
Tasmania and parts of Victoria, Australia. HF conditions are expected
to be strongly depressed in the high latitudes and enhanced in the low
latitudes, today.
