SDF Number 172 Issued at 2200Z on 20 Jun 2004

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 19-2100Z to 20-2100Z

Solar activity was at low levels today. Region 635 (S12W01) produced several C-class flares during the period. The largest was a C2/Sf event that occurred at 20/1332Z. There was continued growth in the sunspot area, most notably around the intermediate spots. Region 635 continues to exhibit a delta magnetic configuration in the trailing portion of the active region. Region 634 (N12W18) was quiescent today with little change observed over the period. The large, lead asymmetrical spot continues to display a delta magnetic structure. New Region 636 (S10E30) was numbered today.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
Solar activity is expected to be at low to moderate levels. Regions 634 and 635 are capable of producing M-class flare activity.
