Active Region Approaching
An active region currently a few days away from rotating into view from behind the east limb appears to be producing C-Flares and possible moderate M-Flares. More updates regarding this likely sunspot during the next few days.

Minor Storming Observed
A high speed coronal hole stream reached Earth on Thursday and sparked minor (G1) geomagnetic storming at higher latitudes. Isolated periods of minor storming could persist during the next 24 hours. High latitude sky watchers should remain alert for visible aurora.

Solar Update / Minor Storm Watch
Good evening. A quick update as we head into Thursday.

Solar activity on Wednesday was very low despite the presence of expanding sunspot 2671. The region showed new spot formation within the trailing section of the group, including a Delta magnetic signature as well. C-Flares will remain possible during the next 24 hours with a chance for an isolated M-Flare.

A high latitude coronal hole stream is expected to skirt past Earth within the next 24-48 hours and a minor (G1) geomagnetic storm watch will be in effect.

More updates regarding these stories to follow whenever necessary. Stay tuned to SolarHam.com for the most up to date spaceweather news, data and imagery.

Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA,
Space Weather Prediction Center.
UPDATED 2017 August 19 1230 UTC

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was at low levels. Multiple C-class x-ray events occured,
the largest being a C4 flare at 18/2002 UTC, from an area of enhanced
brightening on or just behind the E limb. Region 2671 (N12E15,
Fkc/beta-gamma) remained the only spotted region on the disk and
produced a few B-class flares as well as a C2/1n flare at 18/2104 UTC.
Region 2671 showed minor growth in its intermediate spots. No
Earth-directed CMEs were observed in available satellite imagery.

.Forecast...
Solar activity is likely to be low with a slight chance of M-class
flares (R1-R2; Minor-Moderate radio blackouts) all three days of the
forecast period (19-21 Aug).
