Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 134 Issued at 2200Z on 14 May 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 13/2100Z
to 14/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Three new regions emerged
in the last 24 hours, Region 1213 (S21W80), Region 1214 (S20E17),
and Region 1215 (S23W30). All are small and magnetically simple.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to remain
very low. A slight chance for a C-class flare exists for the next
three days (15-17 May).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 13/2100Z to 14/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet to unsettled, with a chance for an active
period, and a slight chance for a minor storm period late on day 1
(15 May). The increase in activity is forecast due to a coronal
hole high speed stream becoming geoeffective. Unsettled conditions
are expected to persist for days 2 and 3 (16-17 May) with a slight
chance for isolated active periods.
