SPACE WEATHER OUTLOOK #01- 3

2001 January 16 at 02:13 p.m. MST (2001 January 16 2113 UT)

**** SPACE WEATHER OUTLOOK ****

Summary For January 8-14

Space weather was at minor levels. Isolated category R1 (minor) radio
blackouts occurred on Jan. 9 – 10 due to moderate-sized solar flares.
Category R1 radio blackouts are usually associated with the following
system effects on the sunlit side of Earth: minor degradation of
high-frequency radio communication with occasional loss of radio
contact and brief degradation of low-frequency navigation signals.
There were no geomagnetic storms or solar radiation storms during the
period.

Outlook For January 17-23

Space weather is expected to remain at minor levels. There will be a
fair chance for an isolated category R1 radio blackout sometime during
the period with system effects comparable to those mentioned above. No
solar radiation storms or geomagnetic storms are expected.
