      At this time, the Earth is inside of a coronal hole solar wind stream.
      However, there hasn't been much in the way of geomagnetic activity
      outside of isolated active periods, and no geomagnetic storms have
      been observed. Aurora appear to be unlikely. There is one small
      sunspot region visible, that being region 727. It doesn't look to
      have the ability to generate a significant flare. That's about it for
      now.

      The current solar and geomagnetic conditions are :

      NOAA sunspot number : 30
      SFI : 86
      A index : 20
      K index : 3

      Solar wind speed : 585.2 km/sec
      Solar wind density : 1.0 protons/cc
      Solar wind pressure : 1.4 nPa

      IMF : 5.8 nT
      IMF Orientation : 0.5 nT South

      GOES-12 Background X-ray Flux level : A4

      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 be quiet to active, with isolated
      periods of minor storming on 30 January from the residual effects of
      elevated solar wind. Activity should subside on 1-2 February to quiet
      to unsettled levels.

      Recent significant solar flare activity :
      None
