Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast
SDF Number 157 Issued at 2200Z on 05 Jun 2020

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 04/2100Z to 05/2100Z: 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 (06 Jun, 07 Jun, 08 Jun).

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 04/2100Z to 05/2100Z: The geomagnetic
field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 356 km/s at 04/2236Z. Total IMF reached 5 nT at 05/1409Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -3 nT at 05/0835Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 172 pfu.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on days one and two (06 Jun, 07 Jun) and quiet levels on day three (08 Jun).
