CURRENT SPACE WEATHER CONDITIONS: Solar activity is low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. The solar wind has slightly increased above background levels from 320 km/s to 410 km/s due to a weak CME influence. Geomagnetic conditions are at quiet to unsettled levels. Local HF working frequencies are slightly elevated compared to the monthly average predicted values.

OUTLOOK: Solar activity is expected to remain low with background X-ray flux at lower B-class levels. There are no active regions visible on the solar disk and no flaring activity is expected. The solar wind speed is expected to return to background levels within the next 24 hours. Geomagnetic conditions are expected to be mostly quiet with intervals of unsettled levels.
