Solar Forecast

(last updated 24 Jan 2022 23:31 UT)

25 Jan 26 Jan 27 Jan Activity Very low to low Very low to low Very low to low Fadeouts None expected None expected None expected 10.7cm/SSN 95/41 95/41 95/41 COMMENT: Solar activity was low on UT day 24 January with two C1 flares. There are two numbered regions on the visible disc. Spot region 2934 (S23E10) is stable and quiet. A yet to be numbered region is located near N13E79, there is a developing spot group near N32E06 and there has been intermittent spot development and decay in the northern hemisphere. Solar activity is expected to be very low to low on 25-27 January. There were no Earth directed coronal mass ejections seen in available images. Ambient solar wind conditions were observed on 24 January with a peak speed of 338 km/s. The peak total IMF was 7 nT until 1710 UT when a small step occurred, with the total IMF peaking at 11 nT after that. The north-south IMF (Bz) range was +/-6 nT. Coronal hole effects are expected to produce mildly enhanced solar wind conditions 25-26 January. There is a slight chance of a mild CME impact in the second half of 25 January. The solar wind is expected to begin to settle on 27 January.

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