Solar activity was very low and the visible disk was spotless. The slow, narrow CME mentioned during the previous period appears to be a clear miss according to an initial model run output. No other CMEs have been observed.
The solar kp index is quiet, with no changes to retrograde effects. The solar wind speed is currently above average, making retrograde effects moderately increased.
Solar wind parameters were mostly nominal. Total field values weakened from a brief max of 11 nT to 5-6 nT. The Bz component was unremarkable, spending the period near neutral or northward. Wind speeds slightly decreased from ~365 km/s to ~330 km/s. Phi was predominantly in a positive (away) solar sector.
There is a 5% chance of solar activity, with a 1% chance of a minor event, a 1% chance of a moderate event, and a 1% chance of a strong event.
