A. NOAA Geomagnetic Activity Observation and Forecast

The greatest observed 3 hr Kp over the past 24 hours was 3 (below NOAA
Scale levels).
The greatest expected 3 hr Kp for Sep 02-Sep 04 2014 is 3 (below NOAA
Scale levels).

21-00UT        2          2          3

Rationale: No G1 (Minor) or greater geomagnetic storms are expected.  No
significant transient or recurrent solar wind features are forecast.

B. NOAA Solar Radiation Activity Observation and Forecast

Solar radiation, as observed by NOAA GOES-13 over the past 24 hours, was
below S-scale storm level thresholds.

Solar Radiation Storm Forecast for Sep 02-Sep 04 2014

              Sep 02  Sep 03  Sep 04
S1 or greater    5%      5%      5%

Rationale: The greater than 10 MeV proton flux is expected to remain
slightly enhanced, but below alert threshold levels (S1-Minor) for the
next three days (02-04 Sep) following the large flare event on the
non-Earth side of the sun.


C. NOAA Radio Blackout Activity and Forecast

No radio blackouts were observed over the past 24 hours.

Radio Blackout Forecast for Sep 02-Sep 04 2014

              Sep 02        Sep 03        Sep 04
R1-R2           20%           20%           35%
R3 or greater    1%            1%            5%

Rationale: There is a slight chance for (R1-R2 (Minor-Moderate)) radio
blackouts over the next two days (02-03 Sep) with Regions 2149 or 2152
being the likely sources.  By day three (04 Sep), the chance for an
R1-R2 event will increase as old Region 2139 (N15, L=053) returns.
