Geomagnetic activity summary:
The local geomagnetic activity had reached the minor storm level (local K-index=5) at Tuesday, May 14.
We expect continuing the active level during the two coming days (May 17 - 18), and also, unsettled to active conditions are possible about May 20 - 21. Since Saturday, May 18, we expect quiet to unsettled conditions return. These conditions can be interrupted by unsettled to active episode caused by coronal hole 5/-3. Then, May 22 - 23, we expect quiet to unsettled conditions return.
