Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 24/2100Z to 25/2100Z: 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 chance for a C-class flares on days one, two, and three (26 Feb, 27 Feb, 28 Feb). IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 24/2100Z to 25/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to active levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 503 km/s at 25/0357Z. Total IMF reached 6 nT at 24/2112Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -6 nT at 24/2112Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 971 pfu.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels on days one, two, and three (26 Feb, 27 Feb, 28 Feb).
