Solar activity was very low. No flares occurred during the past 24 hours. The solar disk is void of spots.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast
Solar activity is expected to be very low.
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 20-2100Z to 21-2100Z
The geomagnetic field was mostly quiet during the past 24 hours.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast
The geomagnetic field is expected be quiet for most of the first day (22 April). However, an increase to unsettled with a chance for isolated active periods is expected late on the first day (22 April) or early on the second day (23 April) with the onset of a high speed solar wind stream.
