Solar Activity
.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity remained very low. There were no sunspots on the visible disk and no Earth-directed CMEs observed in available coronagraph imagery.
Solar activity is expected to remain very low 06-08 May.

Energetic Particle
.24 hr Summary...
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux was normal to moderate and the greater than 10 MeV proton flux continued at background values.
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux is expected to be normal to moderate 06-08 May and the greater than 10 MeV proton flux is expected to remain at background.

Solar Wind
.24 hr Summary...
Solar wind parameters were indicative of a slow regime. Total IMF strength was mainly 2 to 4 nT and the Bz component was mostly weak northward directed. Solar wind speed decreased from ~425 km/s to end of period values of 325-340 km/s. The phi angle was primarily positive, with a few brief occasions of negative orientation.
A slow solar wind regime is anticipated to continue 06-08 May.

.24 hr Summary...
The geomagnetic field was quiet.
The geomagnetic field is expected to remain quiet 06-08 May.
