According to spaceweather.com-

“As expected, a CME hit Earth’s magnetic field on Jan. 24th at approximately 1500 UT (10 am EST). The impact produced a G1-class geomagnetic storm and bright auroras around the Arctic Circle.”

But… the NICT Magnetosphere simulation had not seen a spike in the magnetosphere untill today. (Below image is from the NICT)

This suggests the worst is yet to come. This evening into the morning hours of the 26th. It takes time for the ‘ripples’ to come down from the poles.
