24-hour probabilistic solar X-ray flare forecasts, issued hourly and 6 hourly [00, 06, 12 and 18UT]

The product contains probabilistic forecasts of X-ray solar flare activity expected to occur within a 24 hour period following the forecast issue time. The forecast probabilities pertain to the full visible solar disk and/or discrete active regions on the Sun. The probabilities relate to flaring at each of two magnitude levels: 1. M-class or greater flares (peak flux in 1-8 band exceeding 10-5 W/m2) [NOAA R-scale R-1 equivalent]; 2. X-class or greater flares (peak flux in 1-8 band exceed... more

3 hourly Ultraviolet Index

The UV Index is a simple and informative way of describing the danger of solar UV radiation intensity. Each point on the Index scale is equivalent to 25 milliWatts/square metre of UV radiation. The higher the Index value, the greater the potential for damage to skin. Sun protection measures are needed when the UV Index is 3 or above. The forecast UV Index for clear sky conditions is the value at the beginning of the first hour of the (3-hourly) time period. The UV Index forecast is prod... more
