Although the sunspot count is lower today at 121 the chances of a large flare have increased overnight. Sunspots AR1718 and AR 1719 are both Earth facing and full of the energy for flares, Two more sunspots AR1721 and AR1722 are moving into position where anything they throw off will be Earth directed.
NOAA estimates a 50% chance of a large M class flare occurring during the next 24 hours, and a 15% chance of an X class during the same period.
Charged particles from the M6 flare yesterday are coming our way and should hit the Earths magnetic field in the early hours of April 13th giving rise to the possibility of auroras at high latitudes.
