Todays sunspot number is a low 68. Sunspot AR1800 has the energy for M-class flares but is sitting quietly on the eastern limb. If it did flare it is not squarely earth-facing. NOAA estimates the chance of an M-class flare at 10% over the next 24 hours and 0.1% for an X-class over the same period. There are currently no coronal holes on the Earth side of the Sun.
