SDF Number 252 Issued at 2200Z on 08 Sep 2016
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 07/2100Z to 08/2100Z: 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 likely to be low with a slight chance for an M-class flare on days one, two, and three (09 Sep, 10 Sep, 11 Sep).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 07/2100Z to 08/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to active levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 523 km/s at 08/0043Z. Total IMF reached 7 nT at 08/0400Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -5 nT at 08/0437Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 14152 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on days one, two, and three (09 Sep, 10 Sep, 11 Sep).
