It looks like the CME will arrive on March 8-9. Looks like it could be a strong one.

STRONG SOLAR FLARE ALERT: A strong solar flare reaching M8.4 took place at 17:44 UTC Saturday afternoon. The flare was centered around AR11429. Stay Tuned to SolarHam.com for the latest information.
Updated 3/10/2012 @ 19:40 UTC Sunspot 1429 Flares Again Sunspot 1429 is back at it again, this time with a strong M8.4 Solar Flare peaking at 17:44 UTC. This event triggered and R2 Level Radio Blackout and a Type IV Sweep Frequency Event was detected as well.
A bright Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was produced and is most likely headed this way. Movie presentation is now below.

ALERT: Type IV Radio Emission Begin Time: 2012 Mar 10 1729 UTC Description: Type IV emissions occur in association with major eruptions on the sun and are typically associated with strong coronal mass ejections and solar radiation storms. SUMMARY: 10cm Radio Burst Begin Time: 2012 Mar 10 1722 UTC Maximum Time: 2012 Mar 10 1802 UTC End Time: 2012 Mar 10 1822 UTC Duration: 60 minutes Peak Flux: 459 sfu Description: A 10cm radio burst indicates that the electromagnetic burst associated with a solar flare at the 10cm wavelength was double or greater than the initial 10cm radio background.
This can be indicative of significant radio noise in association with a solar flare. This noise is generally short-lived but can cause interference for sensitive receivers including radar, GPS, and satellite communications.
SOLAR FLARE ALERT: A strong solar flare reaching M7.9 is currently in progress. More information to follow.
