Space weather decreased to minor levels. Isolated category R1 (minor)
radio blackouts occurred on May 1 – 2 due to moderate-sized solar
flares. Category R1 radio blackouts normally cause minor degradation of

on the sunlit side of Earth (for a more complete list of adverse system
effects, please refer to the NOAA Space Weather Scales).
