IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 29/2100Z to 30/2100Z: 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 30/1451Z from Region 3130 (S24W84). There are currently 4 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is likely to be low on days one, two, and three (31 Oct, 01 Nov, 02 Nov).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 29/2100Z to 30/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to active levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 585 km/s at 30/0345Z. Total IMF reached 5 nT at 30/0013Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -5 nT at 29/2213Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 3715 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to active levels on days one, two, and three (31 Oct, 01 Nov, 02 Nov).
