      After causing quite a bit of excitement as it was emerging over the
      sun's eastern limb, sunspot region 792 has calmed down some, although
      it still has the potential of generating an M-class flare. The last
      few days have seen on-and-off G-1 geomagnetic storm activity as a
      result of region 792's earlier outbursts. Along with region 792,
      region 794 also has the potential for producing an M-class flare. The
      solar wind speed is in the 700 km/sec range, and should remain
      elevated for the next couple of days.

      The current solar and geomagnetic conditions are :

      NOAA sunspot number : 54
      SFI : 93
      A index : 30
      K index : 3

      Solar wind speed : 703.8 km/sec
      Solar wind density : 0.5 protons/cc
      Solar wind pressure : 0.4 nPa

      IMF : 6.1 nT
      IMF Orientation : 4.5 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.

      Geomagnetic activity forecast :
      The geomagnetic field is expected to be at unsettled to active levels
      with a chance for minor storm conditions for the next three days
      (07-09 August).

      Recent significant solar flare activity :
