# Daily Space Weather Summary and Forecast.
Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 25/2100Z to
26/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24 hours.
The largest solar event of the period was a C9 event observed at
26/1353Z from Region 2403 (S16W44). There are currently 1 numbered
sunspot regions on the disk.
Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is likely to be moderate
with a slight chance for an X-class flare on days one and two (27 Aug,
28 Aug) and expected to be low with a chance for M-class flares on day
three (29 Aug).
Geophysical Activity Summary 25/2100Z to 26/2100Z: 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
450 km/s at 26/0413Z. Total IMF reached 10 nT at 26/0837Z. The maximum
southward component of Bz reached -9 nT at 26/1837Z. Electrons greater
than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 526 pfu.
Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected
to be at quiet to minor storm levels on day one (27 Aug), unsettled to
active levels on day two (28 Aug) and quiet to unsettled levels on day
three (29 Aug). Protons greater than 10 Mev have a slight chance of
crossing threshold on days one and two (27 Aug, 28 Aug).
