Today I noticed another major storm "Power Up" taking place along with "Sandy" reverting back to Cat1. Having checked the Solar News reports, It would seem to be all down to a filament of magnetism snaking around the Sun's southeastern limb that erupted on Oct 26th....more to follow
CANYON OF FIRE - SpaceWeather.com: A filament of magnetism snaking around the sun's southeastern limb erupted on Oct 26th. The blast created a "canyon of fire" in the sun's lower atmosphere, click SpaceWeather link for more.....
A strong storm dumped up to three feet of snow on the Sierra Nevada, allowing several California ski resorts to open some slopes earlier than any time in memory and offering hope of a rebound from last season's disastrously dry winter.
Squaw Valley, one of the state's biggest and most internationally famous ski resorts, said it will open a slope Thursday for skiing, its earliest opening in 51 years of record keeping.
California ski season normally starts around Thanksgiving. Squaw is opening one 850-foot run for the day, then will "see how it goes" before determining whether to open more days, said Amelia Richmond, spokeswoman for Squaw, site of the 1960 Winter Olympics and owned by KSL Capital Partners LLC.
"I think it's a great sign for the winter to start off with a bang like this," Ms. Richmond said.
Today there is news of a Hurricane "Power Up" from Cat1 to Cat2, my interpretation of this Solar event is that the current Solar Activity is not over and it will fall more or less in line with the recent Piers Corbyn "Red Warning" R5+ forecast. Weather systems and storms will be enhanced in this period, making them more powerful then forecast by standard Meteorology. Also in this period there is a higher then average chance of M6+ Earthquakes and Volcanic activity...more to follow.
Having gone through several days of R4/R5 Solar/Lunar events we are now at the start of a second R5+ period in two months. The following YouTube of a Solar flare from today looks to be the start of this event....remember the CME from a Solar Flare does not have to be in direct line with Earth, it's the "hole" that is facing us that counts...more to follow
ALMOST-X FLARE - SpaceWeather.com: Today at 1814 UT, Earth-orbiting satellites detected an impulsive M9-class solar flare.
The source was an active region just behind the sun's southeastern limb. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the extreme ultraviolet flash: image [ABOVE]. Radio blackouts and ionization waves in the upper atmosphere are possible on the dayside of Earth as a result of this event. Stay tuned for updates...click SpaceWeather.com link for more

The deep cyclonic circulation responsible for the wave of cold on the central-eastern Siberia
The first major wave of bitter cold of the fall season is going to invest the vast territories of the Far East of Asiatic Russia and northern Manchuria, where you can also enjoy abundant snowfall in the mountainous areas, quotas rather low. In recent days, the thrust of a trough Arctic filled with air rather cold at high altitude, to the Far East of Asiatic Russia, favored the isolation of a deep extratropical cyclonic circulation (positive vorticity advection), a cold character with a minimum baric fell below 980 hpa, located near the island of Santar, not far from the coast.
The deep extratropical low pressure area is well supplied, along its western edge, the descent of cold currents of polar origin, from the Arctic to the central and eastern Siberia slip south through a sustained, at times intense ventilation northerly winds.
The wait disturbance and worry the civil protection authorities for several days, has now arrived on Italy: it snows in the Alps, it pours in many areas of central / north and Sardinia, and the weather conditions are starting to worsen in the South, with the first storms in Sicily.
In the coming hours we expect the "highlight" of the bad weather, before the expected improvement for tomorrow, when still in the morning rain and thunderstorms will persist in the far south. Just the extreme south is the area at highest risk intense phenomena between this afternoon and tomorrow morning in Sicily, Calabria and Puglia, southern Italy, in fact, we expect a very intense time, with the convergence of the continuous storms that are already forming between Tunisia and Sicily Channel, and sailed up the South from the south / west to north / east, and the arrival of the cold front from the north / west, where he is currently in Sardinia, will move to the southern Tyrrhenian Sea, with a squall-line thunderstorm in the evening that will cross the Tyrrhenian Sea from the north / west to south / east.
Meanwhile, heavy rains will hit all areas of the Tyrrhenian Tuscany, Lazio and Campania: the most violent phenomena precipitastivi will focus on the coasts.
In the north, to report frequent heavy rainfall expected in the north / east, with snows on the mountain rileivi, where tonight the snow level will lower to close the 1,000 meters in height.

The SECOND Tropical Storm "Power Up" of the October "New Moon" Period took place today, "Paul" went to a Cat3 indicating that the Sun has become even more active and that Earth weather systems and storms will have solar enhancements, making them more powerful then standard Meteorology can forecast.
There is now a higher then average chance of M6+ Earthquakes and Volcanic activity...more to follow.
Note: On Thursday 11th October we mentioned that this period (New Moon) and two others (Perigee and Lunar Nodal Crossing) are part of a group of powerful solar/lunar events that are spread out over a time frame that ends on the 21st October.
