SIDC SOLAR BULLETIN 20 May 2022, 1230UT
SIDC FORECAST (valid from 1230UT, 20 May 2022 until 22 May 2022)
SOLAR FLARES  : M-class flares expected (probability >=50%)
GEOMAGNETISM  : Quiet (A<20 and K<4)
SOLAR PROTONS : Quiet
PREDICTIONS FOR 20 May 2022  10CM FLUX: 173 / AP: 008
PREDICTIONS FOR 21 May 2022  10CM FLUX: 171 / AP: 006
PREDICTIONS FOR 22 May 2022  10CM FLUX: 169 / AP: 004
COMMENT: Solar flaring activity was moderate during the last 24 hours, with
two M-class flares detected as originating from NOAA Active Region (AR)
3014 (magnetic type Beta-Gamma-Delta, Catania group 14). The first one was
an M1 that took place at 19 May 15:16 UT and the second an M3 today at
07:49 UT. There were also five C-class flares, three of which originated
from NOAA AR 3014. More C-class flares are expected in the next 24 hours,
mostly from NOAA AR 3014, and there is a good chance of one or more M-class
flares.

Three Coronal Mass Ejections (CME) automatically detected by CACTus on 19
May at 12:24, 14:49, and 16:36 UT. However, there are judged to be back-
sided and not geo-effective.

The greater than 10 MeV proton flux was at nominal levels over the past 24
hours and is expected to remain so for the next 24 hours. The greater than
2 MeV electron flux remained below the 1000 pfu alert threshold and is
expected to remain below this threshold during the next 24 hours. The 24h
electron fluence was at nominal levels and is expected to remain so.

The Solar Wind (SW) conditions (as measured by the DSCOVR and ACE
satellites) are typical of the slow SW regime, albeit with untypically high
electron speed. The SW speed varied between 480 and 620 km/s in the last 24
hours. During the same period the total magnetic field varied between 4 and
11 nT, while its Bz component varied between -6 and 5 nT. The
interplanetary magnetic field phi angle was predominantly positive
(directed away from the Sun) during the last 24 hours. The solar wind
conditions are expected to remain in the same regime in the next 24 hours.

Geomagnetic conditions were globally and locally moderate (NOAA Kp and K
Dourbes 2-3). Geomagnetic conditions are expected to remain moderate during
the next 24 hours.

Details

The SIDC ursigram starts with the code SIDC URSIGRAM YMMDD, where
Y is the last digit of the year number,
MM is the number of the month,
DD is the day of the month.
Besides the ISES codes like UMAGF, UCOSE and USSPS,
this message contains a forecast on:
the global flare probability,
geomagnetic disturbances,
solar proton events.
