    NOAA-SWPC Daily Sunspot Alerts and Forecasts
    Updated daily around 0030 UTC (5:30 PM PDT)

Note: As of Sept. 5, 2018, the legacy website is no more.
In an attempt to locate a similar website, I have begun a search.
Here is a site with similar information (and a three day forecast):
Joint USAF/NOAA Solar Geophysical Activity Report and Forecast

    SIDC - Solar Influences Data Center - Belgium
    3-day-forecast of solar and geomagnetic activity. Text Only. Updated daily at 1230 UT.

    SILSO - Estimated Daily Sunspot Plot --
    The estimated international sunspot number (EISN) is a daily value obtained by a simple average over available sunspot counts from prompt stations in the SILSO network.

    Solar and Space Weather and the Geophysical Event Reports --
    Table of Current Solar Events with beginning, peak, and ending times along with the location & strength of the solar event (B, C, M, and X Solar Flares only)

    Solar Cycle Peaks - 10 cm radio flux

http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/solar ... rogression
    Solar Cycle Progression
    Three Monthly and Yearly Plots: Sunspot Number Progression, F10.7cm Radio Flux Progression, and AP Progression
    All three are important for understanding where we are in the Solar Maximum or Solar Minimum cycles.
    Currently, this 2017, we are entering into a very steep solar minimum, which will give us extreme winter weather.

    Space Weather Alerts and Warnings Timetable - One week table
    Three days of past events, current, and future predicted events for the next three days
