Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 333 Issued at 2200Z on 29 Nov 2005

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 28/2100Z to 29/2100Z: Solar activity increased to low levels. Region 824 (S14W48) produced the largest flare of the period, a C4/Sf event occurring at 29/1709Z. This region has seen only slight decay since yesterday. No new regions were numbered today.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be at very low to low levels. Region 824 has the capability of producing an isolated C-class flare.

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 28/2100Z to 29/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was at quiet to unsettled levels.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to active levels through 30 November. Minor storm conditions with a chance for isolated high latitude major storm periods are possible on 01 and 02 December as a recurrent coronal hole rotates into a geoeffective position.
