      The solar wind speed is a little elevated due to a coronal hole that's
      in an Earth-pointing position. So far, there hasn't been much in the
      way of activity, however. There are two large sunspot regions
      visible, those being regions 634 and 635. They do appear to have at
      least an outside chance of generating a significant flare, although so
      far everything has been quiet since the M1.0 flare of the 13th.

      The current solar and geomagnetic conditions are :

      NOAA sunspot number : 106
      SFI : 111
      A index : 9
      K index : 2

      Solar wind speed : 508.8 km/sec
      Solar wind density : 1.4 protons/cc
      Solar wind pressure : 0.5 nPa

      IMF : 4.6 nT
      IMF Orientation : 1.8 nT South

      GOES-12 Background X-ray Flux Level : B1

      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. There is a slight chance,
      however, for an isolated M-class event from either Region 634 or
      Region 635.

      Geomagnetic activity forecast :
      The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled for the
      next three days.

      Recent significant solar flare activity :
      None
