      Conditions are quiet tonight, and will probably remain that way for at
      least the next 24 hours. The wind speed is low, and none of the
      sunspot regions visible appear to have the ability to generate a
      significant flare. There is a somewhat diffuse coronal hole in an
      Earth-pointing position, and we could see some solar wind gusts from
      it on the 7th. Depending upon the strength of the impact, an aurora
      watch may be put into effect. Stay tuned.
