CURRENT SPACE WEATHER CONDITIONS: Solar activity is very low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. The solar wind speed is at background level between 300 - 350 km/s. Local geomagnetic conditions are at quiet levels. Local HF working frequencies are highly elevated compared to the monthly average predicted values.

OUTLOOK: Solar activity is expected to remain very low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. A high speed stream from coronal hole 59 (CH59) is expected to reach earth later today or in the next 24 hours. Geomagnetic conditions are expected to be quiet to unsettled with a possibility of a geomagnetic storm due to the arrival of a high speed stream in the next 24 hours.
