Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast SDF Number 262 Issued at 2200Z on 19 Sep 2021 IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 18/2100Z to 19/2100Z: 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 19/0115Z from Region 2871 (S28E61). There are currently 1 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 (20 Sep, 21 Sep, 22 Sep). IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 18/2100Z to 19/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 413 km/s at 18/2215Z. Total IMF reached 5 nT at 19/1146Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -2 nT at 18/2233Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 154 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels on day one (20 Sep) and quiet to unsettled levels on days two and three (21 Sep, 22 Sep).
