Two new regions were numbered on June 16, 2013 – AR 1774 and 1775 and now there are 8 numbered sunspots on the visible solar disk. Although the number of sunspots increased, NOAA/SWPC forecasters downgraded chances of M-class events to only 5 %. However, higher number of active regions raises propability of solar flares.
