SDF Number 226 Issued at 2200Z on 14 Aug 2019

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 13/2100Z to 14/2100Z: 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 (15 Aug, 16 Aug, 17 Aug).

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 13/2100Z to 14/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of ~500 km/s at ~14/0225Z. Total IMF reached 5 nT at 14/0112Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -3 nT at 13/2148Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 4786 pfu.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels on days one and three (15 Aug, 17 Aug) and quiet to unsettled levels on day two (16 Aug).
