Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast SDF Number 171 Issued at 2200Z on 20 Jun 2022 IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 19/2100Z to 20/2100Z: Solar activity has been at low levels for the past 24 hours. The largest solar event of the period was a C5 event observed at 20/0618Z from Region 3038 (N15W07). There are currently 6 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.

IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be low with M-class flares on days two and three (22 Jun, 23 Jun). IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 19/2100Z to 20/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to unsettled levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 637 km/s at 20/1624Z. Total IMF reached 10 nT at 20/0735Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -6 nT at 20/1226Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 2970 pfu.

IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels on days one and two (21 Jun, 22 Jun) and quiet to active levels on day three (23 Jun). Protons greater than 10 Mev have a slight chance of crossing threshold on day one (21 Jun). III. Event probabilities 21 Jun-23 Jun Class M 30/25/25 Class X 10/05/05 Proton 10/05/05 PCAF green IV.
