Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast
SDF Number 155 Issued at 2200Z on 03 Jun 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 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 Jun, 05 Jun, 06 Jun).

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 359 km/s at 03/0449Z. Total IMF reached 5 nT at 02/2100Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -4 nT at 03/0114Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 152 pfu.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels on days one and two (04 Jun, 05 Jun) and quiet to unsettled levels on day three (06 Jun).
