Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 23/2100Z to
24/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24 hours.
The largest solar event of the period was a C3 event observed at
23/2353Z from Region 2044 (S18E04). There are currently 5 numbered
sunspot regions on the disk.
Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is likely to be low with a
chance for M-class flares on days one and two (25 Apr, 26 Apr) and
expected to be very low with a chance for a C-class flares and a slight
chance for an M-class flare on day three (27 Apr).
Geophysical Activity Summary 23/2100Z to 24/2100Z: The geomagnetic
field has been at quiet to unsettled levels for the past 24 hours. Solar
wind speed, as measured by the ACE spacecraft, reached a peak speed of
505 km/s at 24/1954Z. Total IMF reached 6 nT at 24/0222Z. The maximum
southward component of Bz reached -6 nT at 23/2222Z. Electrons greater
than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 162 pfu.
Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected
to be at quiet to unsettled levels on day one (25 Apr) and quiet levels
