Solar Forecast

(last updated 29 Aug 2016 23:30 UT)

30 Aug 31 Aug 01 Sep Activity Very low to low Very low to low Very low Fadeouts None expected None expected None expected 10.7cm/SSN 90/34 90/34 90/34 COMMENT: Solar activity was Low for the UT day, 29 August, with two C-class flares from AR2583 (N13W66). Expect solar activity to be Very Low to Low for the next two days, afterwards AR2583 will rotate around the west limb and activity will likely return to Very Low. No CMEs were observed using SOHO C2 imagery on 29 August. Solar wind speed varied between 375 and 325 km/s during the last 24 hours. The Bz component of the interplanetary magnetic field ranged between +9/-7 nT during the same period with a slight increase in Bt rising from 5 to 8nT. The solar wind parameters are expected to get stronger on 30 August due to expected recurrent coronal hole becoming geoeffective.

Solar Activity levels are explained in the SWS Solar Terrestrial Glossary.
