CURRENT SPACE WEATHER CONDITIONS: Solar activity is very low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. The solar wind speed continues to decrease, the current solar wind speed is at 410 km/s. Local Geomagnetic conditions are mostly quiet. Local HF working frequencies are elevated compared to the monthly average predicted values.

OUTLOOK: Solar activity is expected to remain low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. There is one active region visible on the solar disk with simple magnetic configuration. A small chance of minor C-class flaring is possible from this region. The solar wind speed is expected to further decrease to background levels. Geomagnetic conditions are expected to be mostly quiet during the next 24 hours.
