Very low levels of solar activity is expected for today, 1 Jan. The
solar wind at Earth are expected to enhance to moderately elevated
levels today in response to a recurrent positive polarity Northern
Hemisphere coronal hole which has reached geoeffective location on the
solar disk. As a result, the geomagnetic conditions could reach active
to minor storm levels associated with coronal hole effects. The aurora
may be visible on the local night of 1 Jan from Tasmania and Southern
Parts of Victoria Australia. High-frequency radio communication users
are advised to use slightly lower than the monthly predicted
frequencies, today.
