Impulsive solar flare measuring M1.4 at its peak time erupted on June 6, 2014 from Active Region 2080. The event started at 19:26, peaked at 19:31 and ended at 19:33 UTC.
Active regions 2080 and 2082 both exhibited rapid growth in last 36 hours and are now rotating into the geoeffective position.
NOAA SWPC forecasters estimate 25% chance of M-class, and 5% chance of X-class solar flare in next two days. This will probably increase in the coming days.
There are currently 7 numbered sunspot regions on the Earth side of the Sun.
All regions except 2082 and 2080 are either stable or decaying.

A coronal hole high-speed stream (CH HSS) is expected to become geoeffective today. CH HSS influence is expected to continue through June 7 before beginning a gradual decline back to nominal levels on June 8.
The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to unsettled levels in next 2 days with a chance for isolated active periods on June 7 in response to the anticipated arrival of a negative-polarity CH HSS.
