G3 (Strong) Geomagnetic Storm Alert Issued

G3 (Strong) Geomagnetic Storm Alert Issued
published: Monday, May 29, 2017 04:17 UTC

A G3 (Strong) geomagnetic storm alert was issued at 28/0419 UTC due to activity associated with the 23 May CME. Although the solar wind speed was relatively slow, the embedded magnetic field had a prolonged period of southward Bz that caused the elevated geomagnetic activity. Current geomagnetic conditions are slowly returning to background levels. There is an active warning for G1 (Minor) storming which is valid until 28/2100 UTC.
