      This report is slightly more interesting that the last one, although
      not by much. The solar disk is almost devoid of sunspots, and
      therefore the sunspot number is quite low. There is, however, a
      coronal hole that has rotated into an Earth-pointing position, and we
      could be seeing some high speed solar wind gusts from it on or about
      the 11th. That's about it for now.

      The current solar and geomagnetic conditions are :

      NOAA sunspot number : 28
      SFI : 91
      A index : 7
      K index : 2

      Solar wind speed : 357.5 km/sec
      Solar wind density : 3.9 protons/cc
      Solar wind pressure : 0.9 nPa

      IMF : 4.7 nT
      IMF Orientation : 2.0 nT North

      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 very low.

      Geomagnetic activity forecast :
      The geomagnetic field is expected to remain at quiet to unsettled
      levels. There's a small chance for isolated periods of active levels
      beginning on 11 Oct due to the influence of a recurrent high-speed
      solar wind stream.

      Recent significant solar flare actviity :
      None
