Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast SDF Number 329 Issued at 2200Z on 25 Nov 2022
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 24/2100Z to 25/2100Z: 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 25/0722Z from Region 3149 (N22W45). There are currently 4 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 (26 Nov, 27 Nov, 28 Nov).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 24/2100Z to 25/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to active levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 567 km/s at 25/1712Z. Total IMF reached 15 nT at 24/2344Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -13 nT at 25/0735Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 133 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to active levels on day one (26 Nov), unsettled to active levels on day two (27 Nov) and quiet to unsettled levels on day three (28 Nov).
