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 C2 event observed at
24/0124Z. There are currently 5 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.
Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low with
a chance for M-class flares on days one, two, and three (25 May, 26 May,
Geophysical Activity Summary 23/2100Z to 24/2100Z: The geomagnetic
field has been at quiet to minor storm levels for the past 24 hours.
Solar wind speed, as measured by the ACE spacecraft, reached a peak
speed of 621 km/s at 24/2058Z. Total IMF reached 15 nT at 24/1739Z. The
maximum southward component of Bz reached -14 nT at 24/1738Z. Protons
greater than 10 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 368
pfu at 23/2105Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit
reached a peak level of 2063 pfu.
Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected
to be at quiet to active levels on day one (25 May) and quiet to
unsettled levels on days two and three (26 May, 27 May). Protons are
likely to continue above threshold levels on day one (25 May), have a
chance of remaining above threshold on day two (26 May) and have a
slight chance of remaining above threshold on day three (27 May).
