 NEWS: February 20, 2014:

Let's begin with the only sunspot groups that are of any concern. 11981,82,83 and 84 which are really all part of the same group cluster, since they are close together. This group looks like it's been gaining strength over the last day or two. There was some action coming from this area during the  overnight hours but it didn't register as M-Class or Higher and didn't produce ejecta, you'll see it at the video in the end. Speaking of ejecta, it's been all about the filaments baby, past couple of days but today we finally took an M3-Class Solar Flare, surprisingly from the already departed 11967 spot which I said a while back looked like it fizzled out, guess not. If you can't live without sunspots, I have good news. Far-side map shows some good sunspot groups on the way. Looks exciting. Coronal Hole plot showing our connection is to an equatorial, low energy, poor excuse for a coronal hole sliver and will remain there for a couple of days. KP Index has returned to normal after hitting 5's and 6's most of the morning again but because we has so much ejecta these past few days I would expect it to go back up. Looking at the ENLILs from the past few days we see all the projected CME arrivals. Hard to keep up with all of them.

Weather sets up an interesting situation going into the week. There's gonna be a pocket of warm air plunging north up the west coast of the North American continent, as what was faster moving Jet Stream winds, crash into slower and warmer Jet Stream air over the continent and creates what I'd call an atmospheric bubble almost. Causing unusually warm temperatures in Northwestern Canada and Alaska as well as the American Northwest. Looking at the precipitation map, New York City and the surrounding Northeast area to expect precipitation tomorrow but in form of rain, as for temperatures are to remain in the mid 50's. A Welcome change for the folks in my area as temps stay up but together with sunshine on SAT. Good times. Let's take a look at global conditions in 24 ahead from today.
