      All is quiet tonight as the Earth has exited a high speed solar wind
      stream, and the solar wind speed is back under 400 km/sec. There are
      still three sunspot regions, but none of them look to have the
      potential of generating s significant flare at this time. That's
      about it for now. The lower parts of the sunspot cycle can be a bit
      boring at times.

      The current solar and geomagnetic conditions are :

      NOAA sunspot number : 67
      SFI : 110
      A index : 6
      K index : 1

      Solar wind speed : 352.9 km/sec
      Solar wind density : 5.0 protons/cc
      Solar wind pressure : 1.1 nPa

      IMF : 2.4 nT
      IMF Orientation : 0.3 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 very low to low. Some possibility
      remains that Region 741 or 742 (S06E03) may produce C-class flares.

      Geomagnetic activity forecast :
      The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet for the next three days.
      A small coronal hole may produce elevated solar wind speeds on 14-15
      March leading to possible unsettled to active conditions.

      Recent significant solar flare activity :
      None
