Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 220 Issued at 2200Z on 07 Aug 2008

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 06/2100Z to 07/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. The visible disk was spotless. 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 06/2100Z to 07/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be unsettled with a chance of active periods for day one (08 August). Unsettled to active conditions are expected for day two (09 August), with mostly unsettled conditions expected for day three (10 August). The increase in activity is forecast due to a corotating interaction region followed by a high speed coronal hole stream.
