IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 03/2100Z to 04/2100Z: Solar activity has been at very low levels for the past 24 hours. There are currently 0 numbered sunspot regions on the disk. IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be very low on days one, two, and three (05 Dec, 06 Dec, 07 Dec).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 03/2100Z to 04/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to active levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed reached a peak of 381 km/s at 04/2020Z. Total IMF reached 12 nT at 04/1653Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -12 nT at 04/1652Z. Electrons greater than 2 MeV at geosynchronous orbit reached a peak level of 175 pfu. IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at unsettled to major storm levels on day one (05 Dec), unsettled to minor storm levels on day two (06 Dec) and quiet to active levels on day three (07 Dec).
