      The Earth is exiting a coronal hole solar wind stream, and the solar
      wind speed has dropped down to the 400 km/sec range. With no
      substantial coronal holes in view and no sunspots that appear to have
      the ability for producing a significant flare, things should be pretty
      quiet for the forseeable future. There are two new sunspot regions
      that have just rotated into view. Time will tell if they develop into
      anything noteworthy.

      The current solar and geomagnetic conditions are :

      NOAA sunspot number : 57
      SFI : 95
      A index : 8
      K index : 2

      Solar wind speed : 398.8 km/sec
      Solar wind density : 2.5 protons/cc
      Solar wind pressure : 0.6 nPa

      IMF : 3.3 nT
      IMF Orientation : 1.0 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 remain very low.

      Geomagnetic activity forecast :
      The geomagnetic fields is expected to remain at quiet to unsettled levels.

      Recent significant solar flare activity :
      None
