Solar Update / Storm Watch Extended
Good afternoon. A pair of coronal mass ejections observed today (Tuesday), including a CME off the east limb within the past several hours. Both look to be directed away from our planet. A possible active region is hiding just beyond the east limb and we will get a better look during the next few days.

In other news, enhanced geomagnetic activity is being observed at higher latitudes thanks to a high speed solar wind stream. A minor (G1) geomagnetic storm watch will remain in effect for the next 24 hours. Stay tuned to SolarHam.com for the latest data and imagery.

Possible Active Region Off East Limb (SDO/AIA)

August 28, 2016 @ 00:30 UTC
Storm Watch
A high speed coronal hole stream is expected to become geoeffective by August 29th. Enhanced geomagnetic activity, possibly reaching minor (G1) storm levels will be possible once the solar wind stream arrives. Sky watchers at high latitudes should be alert for visible aurora during the upcoming 48-72 hours.

Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA,
Space Weather Prediction Center and the U.S. Air Force.
UPDATED 2016 August 31 0030 UTC

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity remained at low levels due to a few C-class events from a
region just beyond the east limb. Region 2583 (N14W80, Cao/beta)
exhibited overall decay in its trailer and intermediate spots. Region
2582 (N09W83, Cso/beta) displayed minor decay this period as well, as
did Region 2581 (N11W34, Cao/beta). Region 2580 (S17W36, Cao/beta) was
the only region to exhibit growth during the period, with regeneration
in its intermediate and trailer spots.

A pair of CMEs were observed in LASCO, each leaving from around the east
and west limbs, respectively. The east limb event is believed to be
associated with a filament eruption observed late in the period
yesterday. Both events were analyzed, and neither were determined to be
on the Sun-Earth line, and therefore neither are expected to impact
Earth.

.Forecast...
Solar activity is expected to continue at very low levels with a chance
for C-class flares for the next two days (31 Aug - 01 Sep). As the
returning regions from around the east limb continue to progress onto
the visible disk, an increase in solar x-ray background is anticipated,
along with an increased likelihood for C-class flares on day three (02
Sep).
