Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast
SDF Number 311 Issued at 2200Z on 06 Nov 2020

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 05/2100Z to 06/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past 24hours. The largest solar event of the period was a C1 event observed at 06/1522Z from Region 2781 (S23E29). There are currently 2 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low with a slight chance for an M-class flare on days one, two, and three (07 Nov, 08 Nov, 09 Nov).

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 05/2100Z to 06/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to unsettled levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 507 km/s at 06/0838Z. Total IMF reached 10 nT at 06/0413Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -6 nT at 06/0417Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 1277 pfu.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on day one (07 Nov) and quiet levels on days two and three (08 Nov, 09 Nov).
