Solar activity was very low during 14 July UT and it is expected to
remain very low during the next 2 days. There is the possibility of a
C-class flare. There are no Earthward directed CMEs. The solar wind
speed increased from about 500 km/s to nearly 700 km/s during 14 July.
This increase was due to the arrival of fast flows emanating from
polar Coronal Hole 746. The solar wind speed is expected to decrease
back toward slow wind speeds during 16-17 July. The planetary magnetic
activity index Kp reached 4 during 09 to 15 UT and conditions are
approaching active levels at the time of this report. Geomagnetic
activity will decline towards mostly quiet levels during the next 2
days. Conditions for HF radio wave propagation were mildly depressed
to near normal in the Australian region during 14 July UT. Similar
conditions are expected during the next 2 days.
