There is currently 6 spot groups on the visible disk, of which region 2157 continues to decline while region 2158 (N17W51) remains relatively stable. Two regions have undergone some growth over the last 24 hours, these being region 2164 (S13W11) and 2166 (N12E45). Solar wind continued to decline over the last 24 hours from being slightly greater than 600km/s between 00UT-02UT to being just under 500km/s at the time of this report. Bz remained northward for the majority of the UT day, also declining in magnitude from +8nT to +3nT. Solar wind speed is expected to continue to decline over the next 24 hours with an expected increase in the latter half of the UT day on 16Sep. Solar activity is expected to be Low to Moderate for the next 3 days with the chance of further M-class events.
