      good for heat. We had a tropical storm that blew
      against the counter current winds in both the Carribean
      and Gulf in Barry. Just before Barry landfell, for
      instance, you could see the cirrus enhancement from the
      western Gulf going almost straight west before it hit the
      cirrus enhanced monsoon flow from the East Pac. There
      was no significant tropical activity in the East Pac.
      doing anything with its cirrus enhancement. We had a
      flaring event in April and SSTs are good.<br><br>In the
      China dams and the incredible local flooding that is
      occuring, there is low energy coming from that region--no
      big waves or cold fronts coming in. There are now
      huge warm SST anomalies that have moved from near
      Asia--essentially enhancement that went close to Asia this spring
      that should have been rainfall and precip in the Pac

      Pinatubo events reducing the phase change temperature of
      cirrus. There is no sulpur in the oceans increasing
      counter current conductivity.<br><br>The Mississippi has
      been subsisting 25 square miles a year as of late, and
      the flaring event combined with China dam activity
      caused some pretty substantial upper river flooding that
      lead to later further high sed and flow rates.

        On Feb 28th, the Interplanetary Magnetic Field
        swung to a strong south-pointing orientation. That,
        coupled with an elevated solar wind speed and density,
        triggered a G-1 class geomagnetic storm. The result was
        some high latitude aurora. See this link for a
        photgraph of aurora observed over Quebec :
        <a href=http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg target=new>http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg</a> . As of right now, there are 3 sunspot regions,
        namely 9839, 9842, and 9845, that appear to be capable
        of producing M-class flares. Regions 9839 and 9842
        are close to rotating out of view over the western
        limb of the solar disk. Sunspot region 9845, however,
        is close to the sun's central meridian. A rather
        large coronal hole is also approaching the sun's
        central meridian, and coming into an Earth-pointing
        position. High speed colar wind gusts are likely around the
        first of next week.<br><br>The current solar and
