Solar Wind (24 hr Summary)
Solar wind parameters were representative of a positive polarity CH HSS. Solar wind speeds gradually increased from around 450 km/s to around 525 km/s through the end of the period. Total field started the period near 10 nT and gradually decreased to 5 nT while the Bz component was variable and reached a maximum deflection of -6 nT. Phi angle was in a positive solar sector.

Solar wind parameters are expected to remain enhanced into day one (13 Jun) as CH HSS effects persist. A return to near nominal conditions is expected on day two (14 Jun) into the first half of day three (15 Jun). Conditions are expected to become enhanced again by the second half of day three due to an SSBC and negative polarity CH HSS.
