      Sunspot regions 95 and 87 have combined to produce 6 M-class flares
      over the last 24 hours, the strongest of which being an M-3 event
      which occurred on Thursday. Region 87 has showed some signs of decay,
      although it can still generate flares. Region 95 is likely to be the
      more prolific flare-producer over the days ahead. A coronal hole is
      approaching the central meridian of the solar disk. We'll probably
      start seeing some high-speed solar wind gusts from it on 9/1 or 9/2.

      The current solar and geomagnetic conditions are :

      NOAA sunspot number : 146
      SFI : 169
      A index : 8
      K index : 3

      Solar wind speed : 389.4 km/sec
      Solar wind density : 3.4 protons/cc
      Solar wind pressure : 0.9 nPa

      IMF : 7.5 nT
      IMF Orientation : 4.9 nT South

      Conditions for the last 24 hours :
      Space weather for the past 24 hours has been minor. Radio blackouts
      reaching the R1 level occurred.

      Forecast for the next 24 hours :
      Space weather for the next 24 hours is expected to be minor. Radio
      blackouts reaching the R1 level are expected.

      Solar activity forecast :
      Solar activity is expected to be at moderate levels.

      Geomegnetic activity forecast :
      The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled throughout
      the period.
