Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity
02 May - 28 May 2016

Solar activity is likely to be low with a slight change for M-class
flares (R1-R2 (Minor-Moderate) Radio Blackouts) on 03-16 May due to
return of old Region 2529 (N09, L=342) which produced an isolated M6
flare (R2-Moderate Radio Blackout) last rotation. Very low to low
levels of solar activity are likely through the remainder of the
period.

No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.

The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is
likely to reach high levels on 11-13 May with normal to moderate
levels expected for the remainder of the outlook period.

Geomagnetic field activity is expected to reach G1-G2
(Minor-Moderate) geomagnetic storm levels on 02 May due to an
enhanced solar wind environment and prolonged southward magnetic
field orientation. G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storms are likely on 11
and 20 May with active levels likely on 10, 12, 14, 19 and 21 May
due to the influence of recurrent coronal hole high speed streams
(CH HSSs). Quiet to unsettled field activity is expected throughout
the remainder of the period.
