The X-rays flux has gone above the M-levels during the last 24 hours.
Active region 2673(S08W13) produced several M-class flares over this
period. The largest flare was an M5 at 2032UT. Available imagery is
currently limited (large data gap) and analysis to determine if the
flaring activity is associated with Earthward directed CMEs is pending
receiving more satellite imagery. Elevated background x-ray flux
continues, currently above the C level. Region 2673 maintains high
flare potential, expect Moderate solar activity with a chance of an
X-class flare over the next three days. The solar winds are expected
to trend towards nominal levels over the next 24 hours as the coronal
hole effects begin to wane. Geomagnetic conditions are expected to
range mostly from Quiet to Unsettled levels over the next 24 hours.
High-frequency radio communications mostly Normal. Possible short wave
fadeouts. R
