Solar Wind (24 hr Summary)
Solar wind parameters continued at nominal levels with solar wind speed between 266-305 km/s.  Total field ranged from 2-7 nT while the Bz component was between +4/-6 nT.  Phi angle was variable throughout the

Solar wind parameters are expected to persist at background levels under a nominal solar wind regime through day one into day two (11-12 Jun). By mid to late on 12 Jun through day three (13 Jun), a slight enhancement in wind parameters is expected as remnants of a recurrent, positive polarity CH HSS rotate into a geoeffective position.
