Top News of the Day:

2014-10-20 23:46 UTC  R1-MINOR AND G1-MINOR ACTIVITY (UPDATED 20 OCT 2014 7:30 PM EDT)

Region 2192 continues to produce M-class (R1-Minor) flare activity as it transits the solar disk. It was the source region for five (5) M-class flares over the past 24 hours, as well as multiple C-class flares. At this time, there has been no indication of significant coronal mass ejection (CME) activity from these flares, but with its size and magnetic complexity, it will continue to be monitored closely. The increase in geomagnetic activity (G1-Minor) is mainly attributed to an enhancement in the solar wind environment, caused by coronal hole high speed stream effects. Enhanced geomagnetic conditions are possible for the next few days as the well-connected coronal hole transits the western solar hemisphere.  Stay tuned for updates.

Website Schedule (Updated 10/20/2014)

The transition of the new SWPC website into operational status has been delayed until Tuesday October 21st. IT changes have been temporarily suspended due to the declaration of a Critical Weather Day by the National Weather Service. The next available date for the change is also governed by the schedule of the NWS Web Operations Center. From this date forward, and will link to the new website that is currently in its final release at For full details, please see the new site.
