Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast
SDF Number 338 Issued at 2200Z on 03 Dec 2020
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 3 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 on days one and two (04 Dec, 05 Dec) and expected to be very low with a slight chance for a C-class flare on day three (06 Dec).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 02/2100Z to 03/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 427 km/s at 03/0300Z. Total IMF reached 5 nT at 03/2000Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -4 nT at 03/1346Z. Protons greater than 10 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 3 pfu at 03/0905Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 1127 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels on days one, two, and three (04 Dec, 05 Dec, 06 Dec).
