27th October

Level 1 – Quiet

Forecast:
Auroral activity will be at quiet levels. Weather permitting, aurora displays may be visible overhead or on the horizon in Tromsø (Norway) and Utsjoki (Finland).

Comments:
Calm before the storm? Tomorrow is predicted to reach Kp4 with maybe brief G1/Kp5 spells due to ejecta from the M9 flare a couple days ago, plus some slight residual impact from the X class flare. I think this is much more likely than the previous Kp5 alert that was a dud a couple days ago. So tonight is expected to remain pretty quiet until the events of tomorrow unfold. All eyes are on this event. Surely the SWPC and NASA can’t get another event so wrong?
