Prediction for CME (2023-01-11T09:48:00-CME-001)

CME Observed Time: 2023-01-11T09:48Z
CME Note: This CME is seen to the NE in SOHO LASCO C2, C3, and STEREO A COR2 imagery. It overlaps the 2023-01-11T08:48Z CME. The source of this CME appears to be the M3.1 flare from AR13186. There is a simultaneous filament eruption seen beyond the NE limb that appears to be associated with the 2023-01-11T08:48Z CME. This CME was a candidate for the interplanetary shock observed at L1 on 2023-01-14T21:50Z, but per advice from the LASSOS team, it appeared the CME measured too fast to be responsible for the arrival signature (which did not have a dramatic increase in solar wind speeds).
CME was not detected at Earth.

Solar Activity
RGN 3186 (Dai/beta-delta) was the source of an M3.1/Sf at 11/0833 UTC... There is some indication of a possible flanking
influence from a CME associated with the M3.1 flare from RGN 3186. The
initial model run suggests passage mainly behind and north of Earth's
orbit. However, this CME appears to have a broad sweep and the
possibility of a flanking influence on 14 Jan is not out of the
Lead Time: 53.00 hour(s)
