Except for the stable Active Region (AR) 2526, the solar disk is
largely featureless in continuum light. The effective sunspot number
is very low. Solar activity is expected to remain benign during the
next 2 days. A weak B class solar flare is possible today, 4 Apr UT.
The fast solar wind emanating from Coronal Hole (CH) 725 is subsiding
at Earth, and geomagnetic activity is declining after the moderate G2
(Kp=6) geomagnetic storm which peaked late on 2 Apr. Geomagnetic
conditions are expected to be unsettled with brief active intervals
during 4-5 Apr due to further impacts of negative polarity coronal
hole flows. Conditions for HF radio propagation are expected to be
mildly depressed to near normal today.
