CURRENT SPACE WEATHER CONDITIONS: Solar activity is very low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. The solar wind speed is at background levels with speeds between 300 - 360 km/s. Local Geomagnetic conditions are at quiet levels. Local HF working frequencies are slightly elevated compared to monthly average predicted values.

OUTLOOK: Solar activity is expected to be low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. There are no sunspot regions visible on the solar disk and no flaring activity is expected. The solar wind speed is expected to remain mainly at background levels during the next 24 hours. Geomagnetic conditions are expected to be mostly quiet throughout the day. A High speed solar wind stream from coronal hole 79 is likely to impact Earth on the 14 to 15 March. Geomagnetic conditions are then expected to be unsettled to active with a chance of minor storm levels.
