The strongest flare of the past 24 hours was the C6.1 flare peaking at 10:13 UT today in the NOAA AR 1960 (Catania number 18). Two weaker C-class flares originated from two active regions currently situated right behind the east limb: one in the northern hemisphere and one in the southern. We
expect flaring activity to continue on the C-level, with an isolated M-class flare possible but unlikely.
The Earth is currently inside a slow (around 360 km/s) solar wind flow with average (around 4 nT)
interplanetary magnetic field magnitude. We expect quiet geomagnetic conditions.
