G2 (Moderate) Storm watch issued by NOAA/SWPC beginning early on Sept. 12. Geomagnetic conditions will of course depend on the strength of the actual incoming shock impact, followed by solar wind characteristics (Bz/IMF) in the hours following any such impact. The coronal mass ejection (CME) was the result of an M4.5 solar flare around region 2158 early Wednesday (UTC). More to follow in the days ahead.
Good morning. Here is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Wednesday. Solar activity is currently low with only low level C-Flares detected within the past 24 hours. Regions 2157 and 2158 are now in a good geoeffective position. New spot growth was observed within the central portion of 2157 and the active region will remain a threat for an isolated M-Flare. To the north, region 2158 consists of one large dark sunspot core, surrounded by several small spots. This region will also remain a threat for an isolated M-Class event. All other visible regions are currently stable. A prominence eruption off the west limb produced a narrow coronal mass ejection (CME) that was directed to the west and away from Earth.
Also in today's report - Winter watches are out, along with frost lookouts. Possible rain and wind damage in the lower 48. And now two tropical waves, one off the coast of FL.
