Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast
SDF Number 188 Issued at 2200Z on 07 Jul 2021
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 06/2100Z to 07/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24 hours. The largest solar event of the period was a C1 event observed at 06/2150Z from Region 2835 (S18W82). There are currently 2 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 day one (08 Jul) and expected to be very low with a slight chance for a C-class flare on days two and three (09 Jul, 10 Jul).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 06/2100Z to 07/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 402 km/s at 07/0347Z. Total IMF reached 8 nT at 07/2055Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -6 nT at 07/0702Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 161 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels on day one (08 Jul) and quiet to unsettled levels on days two and three (09 Jul, 10 Jul).
