Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 218 Issued at 2200Z on 05 Aug 2012
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 04/2100Z
to 05/2100Z: Solar activity was low. Region 1532 (S18W64) produced a
few nominal C-class x-ray events. No CMEs were observed and no new
active regions were numbered during the period.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low
for the next 3 days (6-8 August).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 04/2100Z to 05/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be mostly quiet for days 1-2 (6-7 August). Unsettled to
active conditions are forecast for day 3 (8 August), due to an
anticipated glancing blow from the CME on 4 August.
