IA.  Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 31/2100Z to 01/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past 24 hours. There are currently 0 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.

IB.  Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low on days one, two, and three (02 Nov, 03 Nov, 04 Nov).

IIA.  Geophysical Activity Summary 31/2100Z to 01/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 307 km/s at 01/1601Z. Total IMF reached 10 nT at 01/1731Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -5 nT at 01/1905Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 2866 pfu.
