Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 185 Issued at 2200Z on 04 Jul 2011
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 03/2100Z
to 04/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 1242 (N18W82)
produced two low-level B-class flares at 04/1252Z and 04/1656Z.
Region 1244 (N16W53) showed an increase in area and was classified
as a Dao spot group with a beta-gamma magnetic structure. Region
1243 (N17W19) showed a slight decrease in area and spots and was
classified as a Cso-beta group. No new regions were numbered.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low with a chance for an isolated C-class flare for the next three
days (05-07 July).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 03/2100Z to 04/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was at quiet to unsettled levels.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be at predominantly quiet levels on days one and two
(05-06 July). Quiet to unsettled levels, with isolated active levels
at high latitudes, are expected on day three (07 July). The increase
in activity is due to an expected recurrent coronal hole high speed
stream and a possible CME passage from the partial-halo CME observed
on LASCO C3 at 03/0142Z.
