      The Earth is inside a high speed solar wind stream this evening, which
      was generated by a large coronal hole that crossed the sun's central
      meridian a few days ago. Geomagnetic storm conditions are a
      possibility for the next 24 hours, and skywatchers in the higher
      latitudes should keep an eye out for aurora. Sunspot region 9845
      remains a threat for M-class flares, although it has been quiet so
      far.

      The current solar and geomagnetic conditions are :

      NOAA sunspot number : 168
      SFI : 172
      A index : 14
      K index : 2

      Solar wind speed : 664.9 km/sec
      Solar wind density : 2.1 protons/cc
      Solar wind pressure : 1.5 nPa

      IMF : 8.0 nT
      IMF Orientation : 1.9 nT South

      Conditions for the last 24 hours :
      Solar activity was low. The geomagnetic field was quiet to active.
      Stratwarm Alert exists Tuesday.

      Forecast for the next 24 hours :
      Solar activity will be low. The geomagnetic field will be quiet to
      active.

      Solar activity forecast :
      Solar activity is expected to be at low levels. Region 9845 continues
      to be complex enough to possibly produce an isolated M-class flare.

      Geomagnetic activity forecast :
      The geomagnetic field activity is expected to be at quiet to active
      conditions through day one of the forecast period. Due to coronal hole
      effects, minor storm conditions may be possible at higher latitudes
      through day one as well. Days two and three should see a return to
      quiet to unsettled conditions.

      Recent significant solar flare activity :
      None
