well I think the expected CME is here, without Nict I have to of course look at other data. Proton increase since

] click the dials for figures below.
the pressure of 2.2 would not be showing white as yet, but lots of red at least. Pressure is a function of wind speed and protons.

ACE shows the protons jumped suddenly at about 11 utc. [link to www.swpc.noaa.gov
] small increase in wind speed also. Bz is still positive so there would be no angel winds on NICT yet. AE index can be seen here: [link to wdc.kugi.kyoto-u.ac.jp
] and shows the stuff is not coming in yet either but there is an interesting energy spike just prior to 10 utc. so something hit us that would have shown on NICT probably as a spike in protons.
we continue to have quite a few M flares. there was yet another cme off the sun possibly earth directed near the end of UTC yesterday, 23 utc or so, I remember. Haven't checked stereo and soho yet today.
