Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
19 January - 14 February 2015

Solar activity is expected to be at very low to low levels. A chance
for M-class (R1-R2, Minor-Moderate) is expected with the
re-emergence of old Regions 2253 (S07, L=003) and 2257 from 23
January through 09 February. A new spot group that emerged on the
visible disk on 17 January, which was numbered as Region 2266 (S07,
L=167, class/area Cri/030 on 18 January), has grown moderately
during its relatively brief existence, however has not been very
active. This new region may cause probabilities to increase in the
next few days should it begin to be more productive.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
expected to be at moderate to high levels on 21-28 January, 31
January-03 February, and again on 08-10 February due to recurrent
coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS) influence.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to reach unsettled levels
with active periods possible on 19-27 January, 29 January-04
February, and again from 06-09 February due to recurrent CH HSS
activity.
