Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast SDF Number 155 Issued at 2200Z on 04 Jun 2023
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 03/2100Z to 04/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24 hours. The largest solar event of the period was a C8 event observed at 04/0345Z from Region 3323 (S07E20). There are currently 7 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low with a chance for M-class flares and a slight chance for an X-class flare on days one and two (05 Jun, 06 Jun) and expected to be low with a chance for M-class flares on day three (07 Jun).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 03/2100Z to 04/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to unsettled levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 388 km/s at 04/2016Z. Total IMF reached 11 nT at 04/1702Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -11 nT at 04/1714Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 328 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on days one and two (05 Jun, 06 Jun) and quiet levels on day three (07 Jun). Protons greater than 10 Mev have a slight chance of crossing threshold on days one and two (05 Jun, 06 Jun).
