Summary For August 1-7

G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storm conditions were observed on 02-03 August due to CME shock enhancements coupled with effects from a recurrent, positive polarity CH HSS.

R1 (Minor) radio blackouts were observed on 07 August due to flare activity from an active region just beyond the SW limb.

Outlook For August 8-14

G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storm conditions are likely on 08 August due to recurrent CH HSS activity.

There is a chance for R1-R2 (Minor-Moderate) radio blackouts through the outlook period due to the flare potential from new Regions 2573 and 2574. These regions just rotated onto the east limb and appear to be the return of old active Regions 2565 and 2567 which produced R1-R2 radio blackouts on their previous transit.

Data used to provide space weather services are contributed by NOAA, USAF, NASA, NSF, USGS, the International Space Environment Services  and other observatories, universities, and institutions. More  information is available at SWPC’s Web site
