G2 – Moderate geomagnetic storm levels forecast as two more CMEs approach Earth

Solar wind parameters in 24 hours to 00:30 UTC on April 17, 2024, continued to be enhanced by a passing coronal mass ejection (CME) which impacted Earth around 17:25 UTC on April 15 (launched from the Sun on April 12). Two more CMEs, produced on April 14 and 15, are expected to make a combined impact at around 00:00 UTC on April 18.
