Geomagnetic activity summary:
Because of the last CME, we expect active conditions arrival at Saturday, March 23. This 
day, a minor storm effect is probable in our latitudes. Following days, generally, we 
expect geomagnetic activity decrease to unsettled level and, about March 26, the decrease 
can reach a short quiet episode.
The last day of forecasted period, March 28, the active conditions return is possible. 
Nevertheless, we do not expect exceeding of the local K-index at value 4.
