      The visable eye went away shortly after she made
      her right turn to the the ENE and strongest
      convection was to the south of the low center. On TWC they
      young pretty doing the call for them (ratings over
      experiance) talked about the eye being there--just cloud
      cover over it. <br><br>I don't think this was an eye
      replacement or wobble. Indeed, on another IR loop you could
      basically see the area where the eye is moving but getting
      filled in a little.<br><br>So, what is going
      on?<br><br>To me, this is all about electrical features. All
      around the eye the wall clouds are going to have very
      strong convection and electrical energy there must be
      incredible. It is my view that this area of the storm (the
      circular wall) is very negitively charged. This attracts
      to the surface of the eye POSITIVELY charged ions.
      Correspondingly, above the eye, where sprites form, and to the
      ionosphere and above to the magnesphere, this results,
      actually, in NEGITIVE charges accumulated above the eye.
      These negitive charges REPELL cirrus, and the eye dries
      out. On the contrary, above the wall cloud and going
      away from the eye, the negitive charges in the clouds
      cause POSITIVE charges to form above in the ionosphere
      and magnesphere, and this leads to negitively charged
      cirrus to be sustained and attracted and flattened out.

        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
