      The solar wind speed is gradually slowing down, and the most recent
      round of geomagnetic activity is over with. There isn't really much
      to report tonight. There are several small sunspot regions visible on
      the solar disk, but none appear to have any significant flare
      producing potential at this time. There are no major coronal holes
      currently visible, although it looks like there may be a small one
      that's just now peeking over the eastern limb of the solar disk. Stay
      tuned for more information about that.

      The current solar and geomagnmetic conditions are :

      NOAA sunspot number : 162
      SFI : 139
      A index : 12
      K index : 3

      Solar wind speed : 449.4 km/sec
      Solar wind density : 2.0 protons/cc
      Solar wind pressure : 0.7 nPa

      IMF : 4.8 nT
      IMF Orientation : 1.5 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 low. Several regions on the visible
      disk have potential to produce an isolated C-class flare.

      Geomagnetic activity forecast :
      The geomagnetic field is expected to continue at quiet to unsettled
      levels.

      Recent significant solar flare activity :
      None
