Update: 5:00pm Eastern Time:
Again, tonight, you will test your skills and see how well you know the news – notes to follow:
Both plasma filaments are entering primary geo-effective position. They each survived an instability today, and will present our #1 eruption threat for the next few days as the sunspots are devoid of delta class.
The earthquakes continue in Oklahoma – that 4.1 is not yesterday’s quake, it is a new one.
http://yle.fi/uutiset/coldest_june_night_in_50_years_brings_summertime_snow/7304434 –that is the link to the Finland cold story. Snow there in June is not going to send the AGW crowd running, but it is the type of thing we will begin to see more and more.
The next chart is the KP index – the measure of geomagnetic disruption. As you can see, we below even a minor level of instability, and it was important to check because the coronal hole stream has maintained speed above 400km/sec (still not a powerful stream) but with the density beginning to rise once more – bringing the KP back up to 3.
