4th December

Solar activity increased to moderate levels when Region 2222 (S19W37,
Ekc/beta-gamma) produced an M1/1n flare at 04/0810 UTC followed by a C5
flare from the same region at 04/0856 UTC. The intermediate and
trailing portions of Region 2222 decayed during the period. New flux
emergence was noted near N09W05 and is being monitored. The remaining
regions were stable or decaying. There were no Earth-directed CMEs
noted during the past 24 hours. However a small filament appeared to
erupt between 04/0200-0600 UTC south of Region 2225, based on movie
loops of GONG H-Alpha and SDO/AIA 193 imagery. Further analysis will be
accomplished once coronagraph imagery has been received.

Solar activity is expected to be at low levels with a chance for another
M-class flare (R1-R2/Minor-Moderate) during the period (04 -
06 Dec), particularly from Region 2222.
