Sun May 18 09:33:16 EST 2014

Solar activity was low during 17 May and is expected to remain low
today. The only significant flare of the day was a C3.3 event from AR
2066 peaking at 02:39 UT. Low level C class flare activity is expected
during the next 48 hours. There is a small chance of a moderate M
class flare. GONG H alpha solar patrol telescopes show a dark filament
(prominence) approaching the central meridian in the Northern
Hemisphere. The filament is presently stable but is worth watching
closely in case it ejects into Earthward directed solar wind. The two
major CMEs during the previous 24 hours were far side events. The
solar wind speed continues to remain light and steady near 350 km/s.
Conditions for HF radio communication have been near or slightly above
predicted monthly values.
