Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 217 Issued at 2200Z on 05 Aug 2007

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 04/2100Z to 05/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. No flares were observed during the past 24 hours.

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

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 04/2100Z to 05/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field should be initially quiet for the first day (6 August). However, an increase in activity levels to unsettled to active is expected mid-to-late day in response to a favorably positioned coronal hole. Unsettled to active levels should predominate on the second day (7 August) with a chance for isolated minor storm periods at high latitudes. Activity should decrease to generally unsettled levels by the third day (8 August).
