Solar activity was low during Jan 25 UT. Minor B and C class flares
were recorded. Active Region 2688 has the potential to release a
significant M class flare. Solar flare activity is expected to be low,
but with a chance of an M class flare, during Jan 26-27. Hydrogen
alpha solar telescopes currently show a dark filament (solar
prominence) rotating through the geoeffective region of the solar
disk. This feature will be monitored in case it erupts toward Earth.
Fast solar wind emanating from a coronal hole is directed south of the
ecliptic plan, but it may impact Earth during Jan 26-27. Geomagnetic
conditions were quiet in the Australian region during Jan 25. They may
become unsettled today due to the impact of fast solar wind.
Australian region HF propagation conditions are expected to be near
normal during Jan 26.
