Comment:  Canceling because conditions are currently quiet and the end date needs to be corrected anyways.

Potential Impacts:  Area of impact primarily poleward of 65 degrees Geomagnetic Latitude.
Induced Currents - Weak power grid fluctuations can occur.
Aurora - Aurora may be visible at high latitudes such as Canada and Alaska.

How about that.

I actually really appreciate this.

An official source keeping us up-to-date in all aspects, even when the prospects are not positiive.

Just what need in the fight against misinformation.
