Nearly a week has passed since the Farside of the Sun had an Eruption and at the same time the higher then average level of Proton Flux has been running in sync with Cyclone "Sandra".....just another coincidence? We will have wait and see the result when one of them comes to an end...more to follow.
Tropical Cyclone Sandra strengthens - abc.net.au/news
Severe Tropical Cyclone Sandra has been upgraded to a Category 4 system.
The cyclone is continuing to move east-southeast at about 11 kilometres per hour and is situated over the eastern Coral Sea, approximately 490 kilometres south-southeast of Rennell Island.
Sandra is expected to intensify and continue to move in this direction before veering southeast.
A Cyclone warning is in place in the Solomon Islands for the provinces of Rennell and Bellona, Guadalcanal, Makira and Temotu, with a cyclone watch current for the remainder of the country...click abc.net.au/news link for more.

I noticed today's chart from TropicalStormRisk.com had its fist active tropical storm report for several days.
It shows Cyclone Sandra gathering strength and is due to "power up" to CAT2 or more in the next day or so.
The only notable Solar activity I came across during this week was from a farside eruption on Tuesday. This solar event is a little later then I usually associate to these solar climate changes such as Cyclone "Sandra".
I have also noticed a change this week to the Proton Flux chart during the past few days (below). This looks to confirm the weaker solar event and it happens to fall into an "R3" period forecast from Piers Corbyn i.e. Piers wasn't expecting anything major to happen this week on the Sun either.
I think it's safe to say that the delay of a couple days between the event on the Sun and Cyclone Sandra doesn't look too out of place given the above mentioned scenarios

TROPICAL Cyclone Rusty is now battering WA's Pilbara coast after being upgraded to a category four storm.
A red alert has been issued for people in Pilbara region towns between Pardoo and Whim Creek, including Port Hedland and South Hedland.
These residents are being told to go to shelter immediately.
Dramatic video footage is emerging from Western Australia as tropical cyclone Rusty approaches the Pilbara coast.
The slow-moving monster storm was still over the sea this morning but the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) says it's likely to cross the northwest corner of WA later in the day.

TROPICAL Cyclone Rusty is sitting menacingly over the Pilbara, bringing extremely heavy rainfall and very dangerous winds to a vast swathe of the West Australian coast.
The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a cyclone warning for coastal areas from Bidyadanga to Mardie including Port Hedland, Karratha and Dampier, and adjacent inland areas of the Pilbara, including Marble Bar, Nullagine and Millstream.
The State Emergency Service says communities between Pardoo and Whim Creek, including Port Hedland and South Hedland are on a red alert and people need to go to shelter immediately.
A yellow alert has been extended inland to include Marble Bar as well as communities between Wallal and Pardoo.
The Bureau of Meteorology predicts the system to intensify to a Category 4 system, equal to Cyclone Tracy which obliterated Darwin, in the next 24 hours before the eye of the storm crosses the coast tomorrow.

From the above TropicalStormRisk.com chart it looks as if the recent Tropical Storm Seventeen has now been officially named as "Rusty" and is due to be a Cyclone CAT2 sometime tomorrow.
Our crude Solar Activity indicator looks to be pointing at this event as the start of the SECOND February Piers Corbyn "R5" event and we should see an enhancement to storm events around the world any time soon...more to follow

I have had a look around at some unusual weather news reports from yesterday to see if I could locate a "Storm Enhancement" as per the Tropical Storm "power up" blog for Cyclone Haruna. The following report from Italy has all the ticks in right box's as far as I'm concerned....no doubt this event will be mistaken as an act of "man made" climate change, but it looks like a typical storm enhancement through a burst of solar activity.
Catania storm: a "dry intrusion" from the stratosphere and an intense "Wind Shear" among the causes of the violent storm that flooded the town of Etna by Daniel Ingemi, MeteoWeb.eu
Yesterday afternoon, a violent storm, characterized by electrical activity and very high indices of rain / rate has hit the city of Catania and its hinterland, at the foot of the eastern slopes of Etna. In less than an hour and a half strong backhand storm, assuming the guise of a genuine monsoon precipitation, was able to download about 60-70 mm of water, with peaks of more than 80-90 mm in internal areas and along the eastern slopes of Etna. On all stands the figure of Pedara which recorded an accumulation of more than 106 mm. It is, in fact, of very considerable accumulation in relation to the very short time.
All that water, falling in such a short time, could not be disposed of properly by the sewer system. This has resulted in extensive flooding, turning the main streets of Palermo in real streams in flood dragged parked cars, scooters and mopeds. The same central square in front of the cathedral, became a big swamp. From a purely synoptic eastern Sicily was expected worsening of weather conditions for the return of the old "CUT-OFF" (closed cyclonic vortex at the top) North African, away to the Ionian Sea. This would have led to a further destabilization atmospheric (reinforcing the "vertical thermal gradient"), fueled by the presence of moist currents from E-NE and NE, in the lower layers, which have helped to amass a very low cloud cover along the windward slopes of Etna and Peloritani south.

A giant sunspot that is at least six times the diameter of Earth has formed on the Sun in less than 48 hours, Nasa has announced.
Sunspots are dark spots on the surface of the Sun which appear as turbulent magnetic fields in its surface rearrange and realign.
The massive sunspot, which formed over the course of Tuesday and Wednesday, quickly evolved into an unstable configuration, and could lead to solar flares, which can interrupt our radio communications.
Nasa scientists spotted the huge sunspot forming through instruments on the agency's Solar Dynamics Observatory, one of several spacecraft that monitor the Sun's weather.
'Over the course of February 19-20, 2013, scientists watched a giant sunspot form in under 48 hours,' said Karen Fox, a spokesman for Nasa.

We have a fast developing Cyclone (Haruna) indicating a presence of Solar Activity in the Earth's atmosphere. As you can see from the above chart from TropicalStormRisk.com all was OK yesterday, so between then and now something has happened on the surface of the Sun!
The recent Piers Corbyn "Red Warning" rating for this period is at set at level "R3", on this occasion I would read into this that the "R" level is set wrong on the forecast. Remember it's easy for me to say this using "live" information, I have the benefit of hind-casting, the rating looks as if it should have been set at "R4" or "R5"....more to follow.
We should expect to see an enhancement or intensity to storms around the world any time soon. The origin of this solar activity looks to be from SunSpot location AR1678
A recent note from SolarHam.com explains this ....Solar activity has been fairly low, with the exception of a solar flare reaching C8.2 and peaking at 11:11 UTC on Wednesday morning. The source of the flare was Sunspot 1678. This region has a Beta-Gamma-Delta magnetic configuration and may produce a moderate M-Class solar flare within the next 24-48 hours. All other regions are currently stable....more to follow.

As expect in our blog yesterday we have a Tropical Storm that has "powered up" to a CAT1 Cyclone. Looking at the latest projection from TropicalStormRisk.com "Gino" should hit CAT2 any time soon indicating a high level of Solar Activity in the Earth's system, and just by a strange coincidence the timing of this event should fall inside the Piers Corbyn "R5" period, 13th - 17th February.
Tropical Storms have been used to display an Earthly presence of Solar Activity on this site for over a year, each time we have shown this indicator the media and science community have fallen over themselves to contact Piers Corbyn about his forecasting methods but It would appear they don't have his contact details
I suggest they go to his web site WeatherAction.com and interview him before he dies of old age and the secret of Solar Activity and climate change is lost forever....more to follow

The above chart from TropicalStormRisk.com shows Cyclone "Gino" expected to transform from a Tropical Storm to Cyclone Status any time soon. If "Gino" goes to CAT2 then she/he follows many other Tropical Storms that have been used to display an Earthly presence of Solar Activity (apparently our interpretation but sadly nobody else's:(
Those of you who follow the Piers Corbyn Solar Climate Changes have seen these changes before, and no doubt will see them again, these "power ups" are used as a "crude" but seemingly reliable indicator to show the presence of Solar Activity and they coincide, more often then not with the WeatherAction high "R" Red Warnings, such as the one posted yesterday...more to follow soon
wunderground.com/blog/MAweatherboy1/commentAs we move through the heart of winter in the US, we continue to move through the heart of Southern Hemisphere cyclone season. The past couple weeks have been fairly quiet in the South Pacific and South Indian basins, but we now have a system to track in the South Indian.
This is Cyclone Gino, a system currently located over the open ocean about 630 nautical miles ESE of Diego Garcia, according to the latest warning from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. The JTWC is estimating the system's maximum 1 minute sustained winds as being 45kts, the equivalent of a weak/moderate tropical storm in the Atlantic. This intensity is based off of a variety of Dvorak estimates, particularly ADT estimates which had been running in the 45-50kt range at the time of the advisory, and have continued to climb since then. Gino is moving SW at approximately 9kts.
