SDF Number 24 Issued at 2200Z on 24 Jan 2017
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 23/2100Z to 24/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past 24 hours. There are currently 3 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low with a chance for a C-class flares on days one, two, and three (25 Jan, 26 Jan, 27 Jan).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 23/2100Z to 24/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 413 km/s at 23/2124Z. Total IMF reached 6 nT at 23/2114Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -3 nT at 24/1826Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 1001 pfu.
