      <a href=http://science.nasa.gov/ssl/pad/solar/predict.htm target=new>http://science.nasa.gov/ssl/pad/solar/predict.htm</a><br>For those interested, note that flaring is on the
      curve about where it was in 1998, and rising, just like
      that year. With flaring the upper air must reach a
      balance before the SSTs can matter, so given the
      biological response in modulation has to be steady, it is
      fair to say that 1998 may be an analogy year. Dams in
      place now were in place then, particularly in West
      Africa and Orinoco.<br><br>Note from the most recent SST
      anomalies a slight cooling of eastward moving equatorial
      SSTs east of the Amazon to go with the big flaring

      compared to 1998. Key to it is that very very warm spot

      year.<br><br><a href=http://weather.unisys.com/hurricane/atlantic/1998/ target=new>http://weather.unisys.com/hurricane/atlantic/1998/</a>

        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
