Solar flare activity was very low during 29 Mar UT and it is expected
to remain very low during the next 2 days. A single sunspot group is
located on the visible solar disk. Coronal Hole 725 is located near
the equator and has crossed the central meridian. The frontal
disturbance ahead of fast wind emanating from this coronal hole drove
a minor geomagnetic storm during its previous apparition. There is a
possibility of a repeat performance during 2-3 Apr. For now, the Earth
is still under the influence of fast wind (500-600 km/s) emanating
from Coronal Hole 724. However, the solar wind speed is expected to
decrease during the next 2 days and geomagnetic conditions are
expected to be mostly quiet during 30-31 Mar. Conditions for HF radio
wave propagation are near predicted monthly values in the Australian
