G2 (Moderate) watch issued for 17, 18, and 19 May

G2 (Moderate) watch issued for 17, 18, and 19 May
published: Wednesday, May 17, 2017 17:53 UTC

A G2 (Moderate) Watch has been issued for 17, 18, and 19 May due to a combination of coronal hole activity and the potential influence of the 13 May CME. While the likelihood of the CME impacting Earth has somewhat diminished, the potential still exists for the 17th. However, the possibility of increased activity for 18 and 19 May remains likely as this enhancement is associated with a returning coronal hole that produced G2 level storming the last time it rotated across the Earth-facing side of the Sun.

Stay tuned here for updates.
