CURRENT CONDITIONS: Solar activity is low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. The solar wind speed is at background with speeds between 350 km/s - 380 km/s. Geomagnetic conditions are quiet. Local HF working frequencies are near to the monthly average predicted values.
OUTLOOK: Solar activity is expected to remain low with background X-ray flux below B-class levels. There are no sunspot regions visible on the solar disk with no major flaring activity expected. The solar wind speed is expected to be at background levels. Geomagnetic conditions are expected to be quiet.
SYSTEMS AFFECTED: None.
