SDF Number 173 Issued at 2200Z on 22 Jun 2021

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 21/2100Z to 22/2100Z: 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 with a slight chance for a C-class flare on days one, two, and three (23 Jun, 24 Jun, 25 Jun).

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 21/2100Z to 22/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to unsettled levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 395 km/s at 21/2146Z. Total IMF reached 8 nT at 22/1158Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -6 nT at 22/0300Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 1620 pfu.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on days one and two (23 Jun, 24 Jun) and quiet levels on day three (25 Jun).
