Catania 92 (NOAA AR 2096) produced the only C-class flare of past 24 hours, a C2.2 flare that peaked at 09:18 UT. More C-class flaring activity can be expected.The solar wind speed is at 350 km/s with interplanetary magnetic field magnitude of 5 nT. Geomagnetic conditions are quiet. The fast solar wind from an equatorial coronal hole is expected to reach the Earth within 48 hours, probably rising conditions to active levels.
