Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 328 Issued at 2200Z on 24 Nov 2006

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 23/2100Z to 24/2100Z: Solar activity was at very low levels. The visible disk is currently spotless.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to remain at very low levels.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 23/2100Z to 24/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was at quiet to minor storm levels. A favorably positioned recurrent high speed coronal hole stream was responsible for the elevated conditions.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to active levels. A return to predominantly quiet levels is expected on 27 November as the coronal hole rotates out of geoeffective position.
