There is currently a single minor sunspot group on the visible solar
disk and the sunspot number is representative of solar minima.
However, the sunspot number will almost certainly start increasing
back to moderate levels early next week. Hydrogen alpha solar
telescopes show a spectacular solar prominence arching in profile off
the NE limb. Coronal Hole (CH) 725 has rotated into a geoeffective
location. The frontal disturbance ahead of fast wind emanating from CH
725 will arrive today 2 Apr, and will continue to impact Earth during
3 Apr. A minor storm (G1) is likely during 2-3 April. Conditions may
briefly reach the G2 level. Auroras may become visible low on the
southern horizon from Tasmania tonight. Conditions for HF radio
propagation are expected to be mildly depressed to depressed during
2-3 Apr.
