Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 277 Issued at 2200Z on 04 Oct 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 03/2100Z
to 04/2100Z: Solar activity was low. Region 1109 (N21W93) produced
a C2/1f event at 04/1635Z as it continues its rotation around the
west limb of the Sun.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low with a slight chance for a C-class flare.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 03/2100Z to 04/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was at quiet levels.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be predominantly quiet with isolated unsettled
conditions for days one and two (05-06 October). Any increase in
activity is expected due to a possible weak coronal hole high speed
stream. Day three (07 October) is expected to be at quiet levels.
