Region 2268 produced an M1 flare peaking at 0044UT and a longer duration (1:06) M1 flare peaking at 0536UT. Region 2277 also produced a very short (11 minutes) M2 flare peaking at 1216UT. No CMEs were seen in LASCO coronagraphs in association with these or any other events. The solar wind remains moderately disturbed with speeds around 450 km/s and Bt between 5-10 nT and Bz fluctuation between +/- 5nT. Further M class flares are possible over the next few days and the solar wind disturbance is expected to continue, possibly becoming more disturbed from the 1st of Feb (UT).
