Solar flaring activity was moderate during the last 24 hours, with an M5 event detected from NOAA Active Region (AR) 3017 (magnetic configuration Beta, Catania group 15) at 19 May 07:19 UT and two M1 events from NOAA AR 3014 (magnetic configuration Beta-Ganna-Delta, Catania group 14) at 18 May 22:02 and 19 May 10:20 UT. There were also numerous C-class flares mostly from NOAA AR 3014 in the last 24 hours. More C-class flares are almost certain to occur and one or more isolated M-class flares are likely in the next 24 hours. There is also a small chance of an X-class flare during the next 24 hours.
Two Coronal Mass Ejections (CME) automatically detected by CACTus on 18 May at 10:24 and 12:12 UT are estimated to be back-sided, hence no geo-effective.
The greater than 10 MeV proton flux was at nominal levels over the past 24 hours and is expected to remain so for the next 24 hours. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux remained below the 1000 pfu alert threshold and is expected to remain below this threshold during the next 24 hours. The 24h electron fluence was at nominal levels and is expected to remain so.
