A new round of geomagnetic storming is in progress on March 15, 2016.
Solar wind parameters are enhanced since late March 14 due to the onset of a negative polarity coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS) and are expected to remain like that through March 16.
Kp-index of 5, G1 – Minor geomagnetic storm, threshold was reached at 22:35 UTC on March 14 and then again at 20:50 UTC on March 15.
Solar wind speed is expected to start decreasing on March 17, as CH HSS effects start to subside.
