Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 109 Issued at 2200Z on 19 Apr 2005

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 18-2100Z to 19-2100Z

Solar activity was very low. Region 755 (S12E49), which was responsible for three C-class flares on 17 April, continues to decay. A CME was observed on LASCO imagery at 19/1226 UTC directed to the northwest. The CME most likely occurred on the backside and is not expected to be geoeffective. No new regions were numbered today.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
Solar activity is expected to be very low to low.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 18-2100Z to 19-2100Z
The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled with an isolated active period between 0600 UTC and 0900 UTC on 19 April. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was at high levels again today.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled with the possibility of isolated active conditions on 20 and 21 April. On 22 April, there is a chance for increased active periods due to a recurrent coronal hole high speed stream moving into geoeffective position.
