Solar Forecast

(last updated 27 Aug 2016 23:30 UT)

28 Aug 29 Aug 30 Aug Activity Very low Very low Very low Fadeouts None expected None expected None expected 10.7cm/SSN 84/26 84/26 82/23 COMMENT: Solar activity has been very low over the last 24 hours. Solar wind speed gradually decreased from around 460 to 420 km/s during this time (UT day 27 August). The north-south component of IMF, Bz varied mostly between +/-4 nT during this time. The solar wind parameters may be expected to further weaken on 28 August. The effect of a solar sector boundary late on 28 August and that of a coronal hole from 29 August, may strengthen the solar wind stream again. Solar activity is expected to stay at very low levels for the next three days (28, 29 and 30 August) with some possibility of isolated C-class event.

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