IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 17/2100Z to 18/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels for days one and two
(19-20 December) due to the influence of a coronal hole high speed
stream. Quiet conditions are expected for day three (21 December).
