A trans equatorial coronal hole is now facing Earth. This coronal hole is sending an enhanced solar wind stream towards Earth which should start to affect Earth either this Sunday (8 May) or Monday (9 May) and it will likely cause enhanced geomagnetic conditions when the stream arrives. The NOAA SWPC has a minor G1 geomagnetic storm watch in effect for Monday, 9 May.
