Weekly Propagation Summary – 2019 Apr 08 16:10 UTC
Here is this week’s space weather and geophysical report, issued 2019 Apr 08 1120 UTC.
Highlights of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity 01 – 07 April 2019
Solar activity was very low throughout the period. Region 2737 (N12, L=63, class/area-Cao/40 on 02 Apr) was inactive before decaying to plage on 04 April. Region 2738 (N06, L=298, class/area-Hsx/300 on 07 Apr) produced low level B-class activity after rotating around the east limb. No Earth-directed coronal mass ejections (CMEs) were observed.
No proton events were observed at geosynchronous orbit.
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels on 05-07 April with moderate levels observed throughout the remainder of the reporting period.
Geomagnetic field activity reached active levels on 01 and 03 April with unsettled levels on 02, 04-06 April due to coronal hole high-speed stream (CH HSS) influence. Quiet conditions were observed on 07 April.
Forecast of Solar and Geomagnetic Activity 08 April – 04 May 2019
Solar activity is expected to be at very low to low levels throughout the outlook period.
No proton events are expected at geosynchronous orbit.
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is expected to reach high levels on 08-12 April and 02-04 May with normal to moderate levels expected throughout the remainder of the outlook period.
Geomagnetic field activity is expected to reach unsettled levels on 24-25, 27-28, 30 April and 01-02 May. Quiet conditions are expected throughout the remainder of the outlook period.
