Geomagnetic activity forecast for the period October 13 - November 8, 2017
Geomagnetic field will be:
quiet on October and November - irregularly
mostly quiet on October and November - irregularly
quiet to unsettled October (18 - 22, 24,) 28 - 29, (30 - 31,) November (1 - 2, 4 - 6)
quiet to active on October 13 - 16, (17, 23,) 26 - 27, November 3, 7
active to disturbed on October 25, November 8
Amplifications of the solar wind, mostly from coronal holes, are expected on October 12 - 17, (- 18, 22, 24,) 25 - 26, November 7 - 12
- Amplifications of the solar wind - prediction is less reliable at present.
- Parenthesis means lower probability of activity enhancement
and/or lower reliability of prediction.
- Beware of paraskavedekatriafobia tomorrow!
