The X-ray flux has reached M-class 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
indicates an associated CME. Analysis to determine if the flaring
activity is associated with Earthward directed CMEs is underway.
Elevated background X-ray flux continues, currently above the C level.
Region 2673 maintains high flare potential, with moderate to high
solar activity expected over the next three days. The solar wind is
expected to trend towards nominal levels over the next 24 hours as
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 are mostly normal. Short
wave fadeouts are likely.
