Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 13/2100Z to 14/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past 24 hours. There are currently 2 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 and two (15 May, 16 May) and expected to be very low on day three (17 May). IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 13/2100Z to 14/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to severe storm levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 573 km/s at 14/0833Z. Total IMF reached 15 nT at 14/0620Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -15 nT at 14/0617Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 1485 pfu.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at unsettled to minor storm levels on day one (15 May), unsettled to major storm levels on day two (16 May) and quiet to minor storm levels on day three (17 May).
