SDF Number 275 Issued at 2200Z on 02 Oct 2021
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 01/2100Z to 02/2100Z: 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 and a slight chance for an M-class flare on day one (03 Oct) and expected to be very low with a chance for a C-class flares on days two and three (04 Oct, 05 Oct).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 01/2100Z to 02/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to active levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 501 km/s at 01/2143Z. Total IMF reached 12 nT at 01/2139Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -7 nT at 02/0902Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 140 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on day one (03 Oct) and quiet levels on days two and three (04 Oct, 05 Oct).
