Our Sun remains quiet this week, but a promise of a solar storm is rotating into view! A familiar set of coronal holes have survived their passage on the backside of the Sun and are returning. The last time these holes crossed the Earth-strike zone they sent us some fast solar wind that caused a G1 solar storm and brought aurora deep into mid-latitudes. We will get another chance very soon to see if they can do it again! Meanwhile, solar flux remains low so radio propagation is still poor on the dayside of Earth. However, the low solar flux is contributing to decent GPS reception, even at low latitudes. Learn more about the returning coronal holes, when we should expect another solar storm, how the local satellite environment is doing, and what else our Sun has in store.

None of this would be possible without the hard work and dedication of those who have provided all of this data for public use.

Images c/o NASA/ESA/CSA (most notably the superb SDO, SOHO, ACE, STEREO, CCMC, JPL & DSN teams, amazing professionals, hobbyists, institutions, organizations, agencies and amateurs such as those at the USAF/HAARP, NICT, NOAA, USGS, Environment Canada, Natural Resources Canada, Intellicast, Catatania, rice.edu, wisc.edu, sonoma.edu ucalgary.ca, rssi.ru, ohio-state.edu, solen.info, and more. Thanks for making Space Weather part of our every day dialogue.
