Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 320 Issued at 2200Z on 16 Nov 2006

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 15/2100Z to 16/2100Z: Solar activity has been very low. Region 923 (S05W33) exhibits emergence of new flux just to the NE of its large penumbra.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low to low. Regions 923 (S05W33) and 924 (S08E16) continue to have the potential for isolated C-class flares.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 15/2100Z to 16/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was quiet with one period of minor storming associated with a period of southward Bz.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to range from quiet to unsettled due to a recurrent high speed stream. An occasional active period is possible.
