Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast SDF Number 92 Issued at 2200Z on 02 Apr 2023
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 01/2100Z to 02/2100Z: 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 02/0826Z. 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 (03 Apr, 04 Apr, 05 Apr).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 01/2100Z to 02/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to active levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 731 km/s at 02/0443Z. Total IMF reached 7 nT at 02/0504Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -6 nT at 01/2207Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 1234 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on days one, two, and three (03 Apr, 04 Apr, 05 Apr).
