Further weakening in solar wind stream may be expected over the next 24 hours. On UT day 13 November, the north south component of IMF (Bz) varied mostly between +3/-2 nT, total IMF (Bt) between 2 and 5 nT and the particle density between 4 ppcc and 9 ppcc. Solar activity is expected to be Very Low for the next three UT days (14 to 16 November).
