SDF Number 332 Issued at 2200Z on 27 Nov 2020
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 26/2100Z to 27/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24 hours. There are currently 4 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is likely to be low with a slight chance for an M-class flare on days one, two, and three (28 Nov, 29 Nov, 30 Nov).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 26/2100Z to 27/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to unsettled levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 442 km/s at 27/0616Z. Total IMF reached 8 nT at 27/0331Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -7 nT at 27/0556Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 2310 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels on days one, two, and three (28 Nov, 29 Nov, 30 Nov).
