CME watch, coronal hole stream incoming

The low energy protons as measured by ACE EPAM are slightly elevated which could suggest that the coronal mass ejection has yet to come. Any impact (if any) will likely be minor and it is unlikely that it can cause a geomagnetic storm but you should nonetheless be alert in the coming hours for a possible impact.
