Solar activity returned to low levels. By 04/0800 UTC, Region 2253
(Ekc/beta-gamma) had produced six C flares, the largest a C2/Sf at
04/0452 UTC. The region grew slightly and exhibited some shearing but
appears to have lost the delta configuration. The remaining regions were
mostly stable. No Earth-directed CMEs were noted in the available
Solar activity is expected to be low with a chance for another M-class
(R1-R2, Minor-Moderate) flare from Region 2253 during the next three
days (04-06 Jan) and a slight chance for an X-class (R3, Strong) flare.
