Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity

SDF Number 150 Issued at 2200Z on 30 May 2005

IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 29-2100Z to 30-2100Z

Solar activity was very low. New Region 771 (N24W33) was numbered today.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
Solar activity is expected to be very low to low.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 29-2100Z to 30-2100Z
The geomagnetic field was at unsettled to severe storm conditions. Heightened activity was due to the resulting effects of a geoeffective coronal hole high speed stream and CME activity from 26 May. Though the solar wind speed at ACE was relatively low, Bz remained steadily south at approximately 15 nT for several hours.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to active with minor storm periods possible on 31 May. Conditions are expected to abate until a possible weak coronal hole high speed stream will move into geoeffective position on 02 May.
