Summary For August 27-September 2

Space weather was at minor levels during the period with isolated
category R1 (minor) radio blackouts observed during most days. The R1
radio blackouts were the result of moderate-sized solar flares produced
by a few sunspot groups. There were no significant geomagnetic storms
or solar radiation storms during the period. For a list of adverse
system effects related to space weather storms, please refer to the
NOAA Space Weather Scales.

Outlook For September 5-11

Space weather is expected to remain at minor levels with a good chance
for category R1 (minor) radio blackouts during the period. There will
be a slight chance for an isolated category R2 (moderate) radio
blackout during the outlook period. There will also be a slight chance
for a category S1 (minor) solar radiation storm.
