Referring to following statements, I am very confused on how to interpret their forecasts.

Does it mean as shown below?

A decrease to low levels?
An increase to low levels?
  • low levels from 26 November - 01 December?
  • low levels from 02 - 04 December?
  • low levels for the remainder of the period?

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
26 November - 22 December 2012

Solar activity is expected to be at low levels with a chance for
M-class flares from 26 November - 01 December as Regions 1620 and
1618 evolve and rotate off the visible disk. A decrease to low
is forecast from 02 - 04 December. An increase to low levelswith a slight chance for M-class flares is expected for the
remainder of the period as Regions 1612, 1618, and 1620 return.
