# Daily Space Weather Summary and Forecast.
Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 30/2100Z to
01/2100Z: Solar activity has been at moderate levels for the past 24
hours. The largest solar event of the period was a M4 event observed at
01/1310Z from Region 2422 (S17W69). There are currently 3 numbered
sunspot regions on the disk.
Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is likely to be moderate
with a chance for X-class flares on day one (02 Oct) and likely to be
moderate with a slight chance for an X-class flare on day two (03 Oct)
and expected to be low with a chance for M-class flares and a slight
chance for an X-class flare on day three (04 Oct).
Geophysical Activity Summary 30/2100Z to 01/2100Z: The geomagnetic
field has been at quiet to active levels for the past 24 hours. Solar
wind speed, as measured by the ACE spacecraft, reached a peak speed of
380 km/s at 01/1719Z. Total IMF reached 12 nT at 01/1452Z. The maximum
southward component of Bz reached -10 nT at 01/1644Z. Electrons greater
than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 641 pfu.
Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected
to be at unsettled to minor storm levels on days one, two, and three (02
Oct, 03 Oct, 04 Oct). Protons have a chance of crossing threshold on
days one, two, and three (02 Oct, 03 Oct, 04 Oct).
