Halley Bay Mag:
very quiet

Have continued to be at normal levels but may increase over the next two days

GOES Proton Flux:
Has stayed at background levels for the lat 24 hours + but may increase over the next two days


Space Weather from Spaceweather.com and SWPC.noaa.gov

Solar wind speed is 397.4 km/s but with bursts above 550 km/s
Solar proton density 1.3 cm^(-3) 

60 sunspots are now visible. NOAA has the likelihood of a M class flare at 5% and a 1% chance of an X class flare. The sun is incredibly quiet.

Kp is quiet kp = 0 with a 24 max of kp = 2
Bz = 0.3 nT south
Btotal = 3.1 nT 

The coronal hole is slowly moving behind the western limb. It is likely that we have see all the HSS's that we will from this coronal hole


From Kyoto:
AE: very quiet!

Dst: It appears we are either recovered or in an extended recovery phase of the storm from this weekend.
