CURRENT CONDITIONS:  Solar activity is very low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. Solar wind speed is elevated with speeds between 480 - 580 km/s due to high speed stream from coronal hole 34 (CH34). Local geomagnetic conditions are at unsettled to active storm 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 visible active regions on the Sun and no flaring activity is expected. Solar wind speed is expected to remain elevated as the influence of coronal hole 34 (CH34) high speed stream continues. Geomagnetic conditions are expected to be mostly unsettled with a chance of active to minor storm levels
