COMMENT: The AR that rotated into view yesterday has been given NOAA AR
number 2773, it has three sunspots and beta magnetic field configuration.
It has only produced B-class flares in the past 24 hours, C-class flares
are possible but unlikely.
No Earth-directed Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) were observed in available
coronagraphic imagery.
The greater than 10 MeV proton flux was at nominal levels in the past 24
hours, and is expected to stay at nominal levels in the next 24 hours. The
greater than 2 MeV electron flux was at nominal levels in the past 24
hours, it can go above the threshold in the next 24 hours.
Solar wind speed near Earth as registered by DSCOVR increased steadily from
360 to 535 km/s in the past 24 hours. The Interplanetary Magnetic Field is
directed away from the Sun (positive) but showed alternating orientations
in the past 24 hours. It had a magnitude between 3 nT and 11 nT. Bz reached
-9 nT. These values mark the arrival of the high speed stream from the low
latitudinal extension of the northern polar coronal hole.
The arrival of the high speed stream has created minor storm conditions
both locally and at planetary levels (K Dourbes = 5 at 09:00 UT and Kp = 5
at 06:00 UT), due to several hours of Bz close to -9 nT. The solar wind
speed may still go up in the next 24-48 hours, since the shape of the
coronal hole is irregular. More active to minor storm periods can occur
then.

Latest SWPC Forecast

Solar Activity
---
.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was very low. Region 2773 (N28E56) decayed to plage and
lacked notable activity. No Earth-directed CMEs were observed.
---
.Forecast...
Solar activity is expected to be very low on 24-26 Sep.
---
Energetic Particles
---
.24 hr Summary...
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux reached moderate levels while the
greater than 10 MeV proton flux continued at background values.
---
.Forecast...
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux is expected to reach moderate
levels while the greater than 10 MeV proton flux is expected to persist
at background levels on 24-26 Sep.
---
Solar Wind
---
.24 hr Summary...
Solar wind parameters reflected slightly elevated CH HSS conditions.
Total magnetic field strength ranged between 4-11 nT. The Bz component
was mostly southward and reached a maximum deflection of -10 nT. Solar
wind speeds increased from near 350 km/s to 500 km/s. Phi angle was
predominately in a positive orientation.
---
.Forecast...
An enhanced solar wind environment is expected to persist under a
recurrent, positive polarity CH HSS on days one through three (24-26
Sep).
---
Geospace
---
.24 hr Summary...
The geomagnetic field was at quiet to G1 (Minor) storm levels due to CH
HSS influences.
---
.Forecast...
The geomagnetic field is expected to be at unsettled to G1 (Minor) storm
levels on day one (24 Sep), and unsettled to active levels are expected
on days two and three (25-26 Sep) due to the aforementioned CH HSS
influences.
