Solar Forecast

(last updated 26 May 2016 23:33 UT)

27 May 28 May 29 May Activity Very low to low Very low to low Very low to low Fadeouts None expected None expected None expected 10.7cm/SSN 90/34 85/27 90/34 COMMENT: Solar X-ray flare activity was Very Low during 26 May UT. Active Regions 2546 and 2548 produced two C1-class flares peaking at 1351 and 1336 UT, respectively. No Earth-directed CMEs were observed in the available LASCO imagery. Expect Very Low to Low solar activity due to a chance for C-class flares which may be produced by both AR 2546 and AR 2548. The solar wind speed varied in the range 330-380 km/s. The magnitude of the Interplanetary Magnetic Field (IMF) varied in the range 3-5 nT and its component Bz was fluctuating between about -2 nT and +4 nT. For the next 24 hours expect the solar wind speed to increase due to a coronal hole effect.

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