Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 314 Issued at 2200Z on 10 Nov 2006

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 09/2100Z to 10/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 923 (S06E58) has not produced any activity over the past 24 hours. Region 921 has rotated off the solar disk.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low to low for the next three days.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 09/2100Z to 10/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was at unsettled to major storm levels. Elevated solar wind speed due to the coronal hole high speed stream, combined with Bz varying between +/- 10 nT, produced multiple major storm periods at high latitudes. Solar wind speed remains elevated at approximately 600 km/s.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be unsettled to active on 11 November as the coronal hole high speed stream wanes. Expect quiet to unsettled conditions on 12-13 November.
