Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 157 Issued at 2200Z on 06 Jun 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 05/2100Z
to 06/2100Z: Solar activity was very low. Region 1076 (S19W74) is
beginning to show signs of decay as it nears the west limb.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very
low with a slight chance for a C-class flare for the next 2 days
(7-8 June). A very slight chance for a C-class flare exists on day 3
(9 June), after the sole region (1076) rotates off the disk.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 05/2100Z to 06/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was predominantly quiet with an isolated period
of unsettled conditions between 05/21-06/00Z.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet on day 1 (7 June). Mostly unsettled to active
conditions with a possible isolated period of minor storming is
expected on day 2 (8 June). Conditions are expected to return to
mostly quiet to unsettled with the possiblility of an isolated
active period early on day 3 (9 June). The increase in activity is
due to a high speed stream from a coronal hole as well as the
possible arrival of a slow moving CME from 3 June.
