>Auroral activity continued quiet over the last 24 hours. At the
>time of this writing, we are beginning to observe a gradual
>intensification in the interplanetary magnetic field parameters. This is
>expected to produce at least a minor enhancement in auroral activity over
>the next hour or two and could develop into a slightly more vigorous
>disturbance within the next 6 to 12 hours. Periods of visible auroral
>activity from many dark-sky middle latitude locations remains possible,
>particularly over the next 12 to 24 hours. There is also an outside chance
>for periods of moderate auroral storming over some upper-middle latitude
>regions. Activity should return to quiet levels by 15 May.
>
> NOTE: High latitude stations are now experiencing adverse seasonal
> twilight conditions. Regular reports from the higher latitude stations
> will therefore cease until later this fall.
