Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 318 Issued at 2200Z on 14 Nov 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 13/2100Z
to 14/2100Z: Solar activity was low. Region 1123 (S22W37) produced a
C1/Sf flare at 14/0001Z. Region 1124 (N14W17) has grown in spot
count as well as area while producing several B-class x-ray events.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low
with C-class flares likely for the next three days (15-17 November).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 13/2100Z to 14/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was mostly quiet with isolated periods of
unsettled conditions at mid and high latitudes. The greater than 2
MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels during
the period.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be mostly active with the chance for minor storming and
a slight chance major storming on day 1 (15 Nov) due to the
forecasted arrival of a shock from the CME on 12 November.
Conditions are expected to persist at mostly active levels with the
chance for minor storming on day 2 (16 November), and mostly active
with a slight chance for minor storming on day 3 (17 November).
