Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 133 Issued at 2200Z on 13 May 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 12/2100Z
to 13/2100Z: Solar activity has been very low during the past 24
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low to low for days one through three (14-16 May).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 12/2100Z to 13/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet during the past 24 hours.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled on day one (14 May). Days two and
three (15-16 May) are expected to be quiet to unsettled with a
chance for isolated active periods. The increase in activity is
forecast due to a coronal hole high speed stream becoming
