Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast SDF Number 257 Issued at 2200Z on 14 Sep 2021 IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 13/2100Z to 14/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24 hours. The largest solar event of the period was a C1 event observed at 14/0649Z from Region 2868 (S22W90). There are currently 1 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low with a slight chance for a C-class flare on days one and two (15 Sep, 16 Sep) and expected to be very low on day three (17 Sep). IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 13/2100Z to 14/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to unsettled levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 496 km/s at 13/2142Z. Total IMF reached 5 nT at 14/1821Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -4 nT at 14/1124Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 332 pfu.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels on days one and two (15 Sep, 16 Sep) and quiet to active levels on day three (17 Sep). III.
