Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 115 Issued at 2200Z on 25 Apr 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 24/2100Z
to 25/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. No flares were observed
during the last 24 hours and the disk remained spotless.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to remain
very low for the next three days (26-28 April).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 24/2100Z to 25/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet during the last 24 hours.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be mostly quiet for day 1 (26 April) and quiet to
unsettled with isolated active periods for day 2 (27 April) due to
the arrival of a weak CME observed on 22 April and a recurrent
coronal hole high speed stream expected to rotate into a
geoeffective position. Quiet to unsettled conditions are expected
for day three (28 April) as the coronal hole high speed stream is
expected to persist.
