IA.  Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 26/2100Z to 27/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past 24 hours. There are currently 0 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.

IB.  Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low on days one, two, and three (28 Jun, 29 Jun, 30 Jun).

IIA.  Geophysical Activity Summary 26/2100Z to 27/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 744 km/s at 27/0041Z. Total IMF reached 6 nT at 26/2109Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -4 nT at 26/2244Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 3939 pfu.
