CURRENT SPACE WEATHER CONDITIONS: Solar activity is low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. The solar wind speed is at background levels with speeds between 350 - 400 km/s. Local geomagnetic conditions are at quiet levels. Local HF working frequencies are highly elevated compared to monthly average predicted values.
OUTLOOK: Solar activity is expected to remain low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. There is only one visible numbered active region AR2670 on the solar disk with a simple magnetic configuration. Solar wind speed from coronal hole 20 may reach Earth on 11 - 12 August causing disturbed geomagnetic conditions. Geomagnetic conditions are expected to be quiet with unsettled spells as the solar wind speed continues to increase during the next 24 hours.
