26 Sep 27 Sep 28 Sep Activity Very low Very low Very low Fadeouts None expected None expected None expected 10.7cm/SSN 73/9 73/9 73/9 COMMENT: Solar activity was very low on UT day 25 September. There is one numbered region on the visible disc, 2773 (currently at N30E32). No returning active regions are expected. No Earthbound CMEs were observed in the available coronagraph data. The solar wind speed ranged between 460 and 510 km/s, currently near 480 km/s. For the total IMF (Bt) and its north-south component (Bz) the ranges were 3-8 nT and +2/-6 nT, respectively; Bz was mostly negative. Very low levels of solar activity are expected for 26-28 September. Solar wind parameters are expected to be elevated during 26-28 September in response to coronal hole effects.

Solar Activity levels are explained in the SWS Solar Terrestrial Glossary.
