Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast
SDF Number 215 Issued at 2200Z on 03 Aug 2017
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 02/2100Z to 03/2100Z: 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 (04 Aug, 05 Aug, 06 Aug).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 02/2100Z to 03/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to active levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 431 km/s at 03/2031Z. Total IMF reached 17 nT at 03/2035Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -12 nT at 03/2035Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 3705 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to major storm levels on day one (04 Aug), unsettled to minor storm levels on day two (05 Aug) and quiet to active levels on day three (06 Aug).
