IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 30/2100Z to 31/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past 24 hours. There are currently 1 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low with a slight chance for a C-class flare on days one, two, and three (01 Apr, 02 Apr, 03 Apr).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 30/2100Z to 31/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to unsettled levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 469 km/s at 31/0016Z. Total IMF reached 7 nT at 31/0105Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -5 nT at 31/0001Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 9268 pfu.
