Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast
SDF Number 170 Issued at 2200Z on 19 Jun 2022

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 18/2100Z to 19/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24 hours. The largest solar event of the period was a C4 event observed at 19/2010Z from Region 3038 (N15E06). There are currently 7 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low with a chance for M-class flares on days one, two, and three (20 Jun, 21 Jun, 22 Jun).

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 18/2100Z to 19/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to active levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 633 km/s at 19/1024Z. Total IMF reached 7 nT at 19/1259Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -5 nT at 18/2249Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 2950 pfu.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on day one (20 Jun) and quiet levels on days two and three (21 Jun, 22 Jun).
