Update - Downgrade for CME Peak Activity Forecast

10 Dec, 2020, CME Shock Arrival
Update - Downgrade for CME Peak Activity Forecast
published: Monday, December 14, 2020 16:47 UTC

The 7 December, 2020, CME arrived in line with the forecast, as an interplanetary shock was detected at DSCOVR at 10/0132 UTC (09 Dec, 8:32pm ET). The magnetic strength of this storm was less than the peak potential that could have initiated a G3 (Strong) geomagnetic storm as it arrived at Earth. Therefore, SWPC forecasters are downgrading to G1 (Minor) storm Watches for the remainder of today (10 Dec) and tomorrow (11 Dec).
