Halley Bay :
Very quiet

GOES Electron Flux:
Have continued to be at normal to moderate levels and are expected to be the same for the next three days with possibly a slight increase tomorrow
 
GOES Proton Flux:
Has stayed at background levels for the lat 24 hours and is expected to be the same over the next three days with possibly a slight increase tomorrow
 
Space Weather from Spaceweather.com and SWPC.noaa.gov
 
Solar wind speed is 386.0 km/s 
Solar proton density 3.4 cm^(-3) 
 
79 sunspots are now visible. NOAA has the likelihood of a M class flare at 25% and a 5% chance of an X class flare. 
 
Kp is quiet kp = 0 with a 24 max of kp = 1
Bz = 0.0 nT 
Btotal = 3.9 nT 
 
There are now two small coronal holes and possibly a third now showing on the Eastern limb. The most westward hole is perhaps beyond the geo-effective region but the second is moving into this region. The third is not quiet halfway around and unlike the other two in the southern hemisphere. 
 
From Kyoto:
AE: very quiet
 
Dst: very quiet. 
 
 
Have a good day and remember to back up your computer!
