      The solar wind speed is slowing down after the coronal hole encounters
      of the past few days. Although there was a bit of auroral activity
      spotted in the high latitudes, it didn't spread any beyond that.
      Activity should remain quiet for the next couple of days, until
      another small coronal hole begins to make its presence known. That
      should happen on or about the 30th. All of the visible sunspot
      regions are in the western hemispere of the solar disk, and there
      isn't anything yet that has rotated into view behind them. If the
      trend continues, we should see the sunspot number start dropping over
      the next few days. Sunspot region 266, the largest of the sunspots
      currently visible, still has the potential of popping off a low level
      M-class flare or two.

      The current solar and geomagnetic conditions are :

      NOAA sunspot number : 134
      SFI : 121
      A index : 10
      K index : 3

      Solar wind speed : 446.2 km/sec
      Solar wind density : 6.8 protons/cc
      Solar wind pressure : 2.0 nPa

      IMF : 8.9 nT
      IMF Orientation : 2.4 nT South

      Conditions for the last 24 hours :
      No space weather storms were observed for the past 24 hours.

      Forecast for the next 24 hours :
      No space weather storms are expected for the next 24 hours.

      Solar activity forecast :
      Solar activity is expected to be very low to low.

      Geomagnetic activity forecast :
      The geomagnetic field is expected to persist at quiet to unsettled
      conditions throughout the period.

      Recent significant solar flare activity :
      None
