More energy seems to have been added to Tropical Cyclone "Narelle" as it has now become a CAT4 from CAT2....I have found yet another report concerning some more solar activity earlier today and would not be suprised if this is the "cause" of the additional "power up". It is of interest that this is taking place during the first two lunar phases of the year ("New Moon & Perigee").
Latest report from SolarHam.net..Active Sunspot cluster 1654 continues to produce C-Class and low level M-Class solar flares. Region 1654, now classified as a Beta-Gamma-Delta magnetic group, produced a moderate M1.2 solar flare at 09:11 UTC, followed by a long duration M1.0 event peaking at 15:07 UTC Friday morning. This region will continue to be a threat for moderate to strong solar flares within the next 24-48 hours.
