21-00UT        5 (G1)     4          3     

Rationale: G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storms are likely on days one and two
(17-18 Aug) due to a recurrent, positive polarity CH HSS.

B. NOAA Solar Radiation Activity Observation and Forecast

Solar radiation, as observed by NOAA GOES-13 over the past 24 hours, was
below S-scale storm level thresholds.

Solar Radiation Storm Forecast for Aug 17-Aug 19 2017

              Aug 17  Aug 18  Aug 19
S1 or greater    1%      1%      1%

Rationale: No S1 (Minor) or greater solar radiation storms are expected.
No significant active region activity favorable for radiation storm
production is forecast.

C. NOAA Radio Blackout Activity and Forecast

No radio blackouts were observed over the past 24 hours.

Radio Blackout Forecast for Aug 17-Aug 19 2017

              Aug 17        Aug 18        Aug 19
R1-R2           10%           10%           10%
R3 or greater    1%            1%            1%

Rationale: There is a slight chance for R1-R2 (Minor-Moderate) radio
blackouts due to the flare potential of Region 2671.
