2017 Solar Radiation Storms

Wednesday 6 September
S2


A Radiation Storm Warning is in effect until 11pm CDT. This is in addition to the earlier R3 and current G3 conditions. I believe it's been a while since we've seen all three phenomena within the same twenty-four hour period.

Not only this, but in the past twenty-four hours there were S3 conditions. I don't see an alert still on the SWPC page. An interesting week!
