Additional Comments

Solar wind speed remains enhanced and despite a brief decline yesterday it is increasing again, and we expect some further enhancements over the next couple of days due to the influence of a recurrent northern polar coronal hole and it's southward extensions. The effects of the current coronal hole high speed stream (CHHSS) should decline somewhat towards the end of weekend, before we see the influence of the next CHHSS early next week.
ACTIVE conditions are to be expected throughout the forecast period, with a possibility of some occasional STORM G1, although this becomes less likely nearer day three, as coronal hole influences temporarily wane. Solar activity remains low and there are no known Earth-directed CMEs.
