SDF Number 179 Issued at 2200Z on 28 Jun 2022
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 27/2100Z to 28/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past 24 hours. There are currently 5 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 days one, two, and three (29 Jun, 30 Jun, 01 Jul).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 27/2100Z to 28/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to unsettled levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 553 km/s at 28/0100Z. Total IMF reached 6 nT at 28/0343Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -4 nT at 28/0447Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 4931 pfu.
