SDF Number 318 Issued at 2200Z on 13 Nov 2020

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 12/2100Z to 13/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past 24 hours. There are currently 2 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low with a chance for a C-class flares on days one, two, and three (14 Nov, 15 Nov, 16 Nov).

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 12/2100Z to 13/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 443 km/s at 13/0341Z. Total IMF reached 5 nT at 12/2354Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -3 nT at 13/0048Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 221 pfu.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on days one and two (14 Nov, 15 Nov) and quiet levels on day three (16 Nov).
