**** SPACE WEATHER OUTLOOK ****

Summary For September 14-20

R1 (Minor) radio blackouts were observed on 17 and 20 September due to flare activity from Regions 2415 and 2420.

G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storm levels were observed on 14, 19, and 20 September due to coronal hole high speed stream influence, prolonged southward Bz, and coronal mass ejection (CME) effects from the 18 September CME.

G3 (Strong) geomagnetic storm levels was observed on 20 September due to CME effects from the 18 September CME.

Outlook For September 21-27

There is a chance for R1-R2 (Minor-Moderate) radio blackouts for the forecast period (21-27 Sep) due to flare potential from Regions 2415 and 2420.

G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storm levels are likely on 21 and possible on 22-23 September due to CH HSS effects and a potential glancing blow from the 20 Sep CME, respectively.
