Solar activity has been eruptive during the past 24 hours, featuring one
C1.7 flare from NOAA AR 11834 peaking at 14:20 UT. More C flares from NOAA
AR 11834 and 11836 are likely within the next 48 hours, with a slight
chance for an M flare.Solar wind speed rose from about 460 to 580 km/s
around 6h UT on September 1, possibly due to the effects of the CME of
August 30. Solar wind speeds later decreased to about 430 km/s and climbed
to a peak of 520 km/s around 3h UT on September 2. Current wind speed lies
around 420 km/s. Meanwhile, the Interplanetary Magnetic Field varied
between 2 and 6 nT. Solar wind may experience the influence of a small
Coronal Hole on September 4. The geomagnetic activity was at quiet levels
(K Dourbes between 1 and 3; NOAA Kp between 2 and 3) during the past 24
hours. Quiet conditions (K Dourbes < 4) are expected for September 2 and 3.
Quiet to active conditions are possible on September 4, due to the effects
of a Coronal Hole high speed stream.
