# Daily Space Weather Summary and Forecast.
Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 21/2100Z to
22/2100Z: Solar activity has been at moderate levels for the past 24
hours. The largest solar event of the period was a M1 event observed at
22/0149Z from Region 2242 (S17W71). There are currently 7 numbered
sunspot regions on the disk.
Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be moderate
with a chance for X-class flares on days one, two, and three (23 Dec, 24
Dec, 25 Dec).
Geophysical Activity Summary 21/2100Z to 22/2100Z: 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 497 km/s at 22/1645Z. Total IMF reached 26 nT at 22/1657Z. The
maximum southward component of Bz reached -16 nT at 22/0120Z. Protons
greater than 10 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 3
pfu at 21/2120Z.
Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected
to be at quiet to minor storm levels on day one (23 Dec) and quiet to
unsettled levels on days two and three (24 Dec, 25 Dec). Protons have a
chance of crossing threshold on day one (23 Dec) and have a slight
chance of crossing threshold on days two and three (24 Dec, 25 Dec).
