Update 6:20pm Eastern Time

Earthquake Condition Index B to B-. The coronal hole up north is earth facing but smaller and farther north than expected. CME Impact is late. Planetary factors are minimal for another week.

Solar Notes: None of the earth facing sunspots are impressive, but we should watch the flare area for further development. Chances for an M flare rise to 60% — likely to be from the limb spots again. We should be able to diagnose them tomorrow. There are no significant plasma filaments on the earth-facing 1/4 of the disk.
