Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast
SDF Number 149 Issued at 2200Z on 29 May 2021 IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 28/2100Z to 29/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24 hours. The largest solar event of the period was a C9 event observed at 28/2313Z from Region 2824 (N19W68). 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 and a slight chance for an M-class flare on day one (30 May) and expected to be very low with a slight chance for a C-class flare on day two (31 May) and expected to be very low on day three (01 Jun). IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 28/2100Z to 29/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 476 km/s at 29/1904Z. Total IMF reached 8 nT at 29/0409Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -6 nT at 29/1001Z. Protons greater than 10 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 15 pfu at 29/0320Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 134 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels on day one (30 May), quiet levels on day two (31 May) and quiet to active levels on day three (01 Jun). III. Event probabilities 30 May-01 Jun
