# Daily Space Weather Summary and Forecast.
Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 28/2100Z to
29/2100Z: Solar activity has been at moderate levels for the past 24
hours. The largest solar event of the period was a M2 event observed at
29/1142Z from Region 2268 (S10W17). There are currently 8 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 (30 Jan, 31 Jan, 01 Feb).
Geophysical Activity Summary 28/2100Z to 29/2100Z: 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
443 km/s at 28/2146Z. Total IMF reached 11 nT at 29/1915Z. The maximum
southward component of Bz reached -8 nT at 29/1809Z. Electrons greater
than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 228 pfu.
Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected
to be at quiet to minor storm levels on days one and two (30 Jan, 31
Jan) and quiet to active levels on day three (01 Feb). Protons greater
than 10 Mev have a slight chance of crossing threshold on days two and
three (31 Jan, 01 Feb).
