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

Solar activity was very low. Region 956 (N02W06) produced several B-class flares during the past 24 hours, the largest of which was a B9 flare at 19/1302Z. A disappearing solar filament was observed from this region starting at 19/1231Z.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
Solar acitivity is expected to be very low to low.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 18-2100Z to 19-2100Z
The geomagnetic field has been quiet to unsettled. The solar wind speed remains elevated at approximately 600 km/s due to the coronal hole high speed stream.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled with possible active periods during local nighttime hours on 20 May. Expect mostly quiet conditions on 21 - 22 May.
