Tue Mar 29 10:31:45 EST 2016

Solar flare activity was low during 28 Mar UT and it is expected to be
very low during 29-30 Mar. The sunspot number is currently about 27.
The Earth is under the influence of fast wind emanating from Coronal
Hole 724. Although the solar wind speed is strong at about 500 km/s,
the strength and orientation of the Interplanetary Magnetic Field
(IMF) does not favour geomagnetic storming. Geomagnetic conditions are
expected to be quiet to unsettled during 29-30 Mar. There is a
possibility of a minor storm during 2-3 April due to the arrival of
another episode of fast wind. Conditions for HF radio wave propagation
are slightly enhanced in the Australian region.
