CURRENT CONDITIONS: Solar activity is low with background x-ray flux below B-class levels. Solar wind speed is at background levels with speeds between 300 - 330 km/s. Local geomagnetic conditions are at quiet levels. Local HF working frequencies are near monthly average predicted values.

OUTLOOK: Solar activity is expected to remain low with background x-ray flux at B-class levels. There are currently no active regions visible on the solar disk. Solar wind speed is expected to remain at background levels with quiet geomagnetic conditions for the next 24 hours. Enhanced solar wind speed is expected late on March, 21 to early March, 22 due to coronal hole 72 (CH72) high speed stream. Geomagnetic conditions are then expected to be unsettled to active with a chance of minor geomagnetic storm conditions.
