CANCEL WATCH: Geomagnetic Storm Category G2 Predicted
Original Issue Time: 2016 Oct 16 2112 UTC
Comment: G2 (Moderate) geomagnetic storm potential is no longer evident in available solar wind data. Activity is now forecast below G1 (minor) conditions.
Potential Impacts: Area of impact primarily poleward of 55 degrees Geomagnetic Latitude.
Induced Currents – Power grid fluctuations can occur. High-latitude power systems may experience voltage alarms.
Spacecraft – Satellite orientation irregularities may occur; increased drag on low Earth-orbit satellites is possible.
Radio – HF (high frequency) radio propagation can fade at higher latitudes.
