PRESTO FROM SIDC - RWC BELGIUM Tue Jul 14 2009, 1241 UT
Solar activity is very low and expected to remain so, due to the absence of sunspots. The solar wind speed started to increase yesterday due to the arrival of the fast stream from a coronal hole. It is now around 550 km/s. As a consequence, geomagnetic conditions were mostly unsettled with some active periods. They are expected to be unsettled today and return to quiet levels from tomorrow on.
