SDF Number 358 Issued at 2200Z on 23 Dec 2004

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 22-2100Z to 23-2100Z

Solar activity was low. Region 713 (S08W06) produced several C-class events. The largest was a C5 at 23/1008 UTC. This flare was optically correlated with the GOES X-ray imager data.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
Solar activity is expected to be very low to low.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 22-2100Z to 23-2100Z
The geomagnetic field was predominately quiet.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled. Isolated active conditions are possible on 26 December with the affects from a recurrent coronal hole.
