Space Weather Advisory Outlook #03-1   2003 January 07

Summary For December 30-January 5

There was no significant space weather activity during the past week.
The only space weather of note was a small coronal hole, which produce
high-speed solar wind. The fast solar wind interacts with Earth-s
magnetic field and causes disturbances. The small coronal hole
observed last week created only minimal disturbances that did not
classify as a geomagnetic storm based on NOAA Space Weather Scales.
For a list of adverse system effects related to space weather storms,
please refer to the NOAA Space Weather Scales.

Outlook For January 8-14

Space weather may reach minor levels with R1 (minor) radio blackouts
possible. A number of slightly active sunspot regions currently on the
sun have the potential to produce energetic flares and radio
blackouts.
