Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 183 Issued at 2200Z on 01 Jul 2008

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 30/2100Z to 01/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. No flares were observed during the past 24 hours and the solar disk remains spotless. A small, six degree filament near N53W40 disappeared sometime between 30/1811Z and 01/0542Z.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 30/2100Z to 01/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet for the first day (02 July). An increase to quiet to unsettled is expected on the second day (03 July) and predominantly unsettled conditions are expected to prevail on the third day (04 July). The increase is expected because of a recurrent high speed solar wind stream.
