SDF Number 167 Issued at 2200Z on 16 Jun 2021

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 15/2100Z to 16/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past 24 hours. There are currently 1 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low on days one, two, and three (17 Jun, 18 Jun, 19 Jun).

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 15/2100Z to 16/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to active levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 622 km/s at 16/0007Z. Total IMF reached 9 nT at 15/2102Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -7 nT at 15/2126Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 921 pfu.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to active levels on day one (17 Jun), quiet to unsettled levels on day two (18 Jun) and quiet levels on day three (19 Jun).
