Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 191 Issued at 2200Z on 10 Jul 2007

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 09/2100Z to 10/2100Z: Solar activity was low. Region 963 (S06E40) produced 12 C-class flares, the largest of which was a C8.2/Sf at 10/1240Z. The region grew rapidly, approximately doubling in size in the past 24 hours. It is now an E-class, 15 spot region with a beta-gamma magnetic configuration.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to remain low to moderate, with a fair chance for an isolated M-class flare from Region 963.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 09/2100Z to 10/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet. Solar wind data indicate the onset of a corotating interaction region beginning approximately 10/1400Z.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be unsettled with a chance for active periods on days one and two (11-12 July) due to a coronal hole high speed stream. Quiet conditions are anticipated to return on day three (13 July).
