SDF Number 14 Issued at 2200Z on 14 Jan 2017
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 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 (15 Jan, 16 Jan, 17 Jan).
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 393 km/s at 14/0215Z. Total IMF reached 5 nT at 13/2304Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -4 nT at 14/0011Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 4185 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels on days one and two (15 Jan, 16 Jan) and quiet to unsettled levels on day three (17 Jan).
