Additional Comments

Solar wind stream speeds are currently elevated due to coronal hole influence, which caused some STORM G1 geomagnetic conditions over the weekend. This is expected to decline gradually over the course of this forecast period.
Geomagnetic activity is expected to be QUIET to unsettled but with the possibility of STORM G1 periods during the first forecast interval. ACTIVE spells could still be possible into the second and third forecast interval as coronal hole influence slowly wanes.
