Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 14/2100Z to
15/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24 hours.
The largest solar event of the period was a C7 event observed at
15/0140Z from Region 2242 (S19E24). There are currently 10 numbered
sunspot regions on the disk.
Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low with
a chance for M-class flares and a slight chance for an X-class flare on
days one, two, and three (16 Dec, 17 Dec, 18 Dec).
Geophysical Activity Summary 14/2100Z to 15/2100Z: 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
556 km/s at 15/1855Z. Total IMF reached 10 nT at 15/0543Z. The maximum
southward component of Bz reached -8 nT at 15/0152Z. Electrons greater
than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 1775 pfu.
Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected
to be at quiet to active levels on day one (16 Dec) and quiet to
unsettled levels on days two and three (17 Dec, 18 Dec).
