Deeper Look – Episode 65 (2018)
SOLAR CYCLE 25 FORECAST
BASED ON CURRENT SPF: Max. Monthly SSN ~100. Likely range; 90 – 140.
There is little chance for a cycle much weaker than this forecast. The solar polar fields (SPF) are already strong enough to call for a similar cycle, and there are a few years of room for stronger SPF, which would push the forecast towards the higher end of the stated range. Please allow for an update to this cycle due approximately every 6-12 months. The SPF will tell us what’s going to happen!
