A returning solar region produced an R3 flare at 27/0708UT. Further flare activity is likely. Solar activity on UT day 27-May is expected to be at the R1 level, with a chance of R2. A previously flare active solar region appears to be returning to the solar disk and is currently just behind the southeast solar limb. The solar regions evolution during its far side solar transit will become evident when the region rotates onto the visible solar disk. The solar wind speed is expected to be light to moderate. G0 geomagnetic conditions are expected. HF radio communication conditions are expected to be mostly normal. Maximum usable frequencies are expected to be near predicted monthly values to 15% enhanced. Shortwave fadeouts are possible.
