Earthquake watch score: 6 to 7. Coronal hole factors low-moderate but with potential if the fields stay open. Mercury is almost behind the sun. Expected watch of 9 at some point during the next 2 weeks.
Solar Notes: Many filaments, all are eruption threats. The sunspots are disappointing per the new-normal of solar quiet… but they still merit magnetic classification — even if only to see how many deltas fail to pop.
