Mount St Helens - rumbling in the dark

Over the last couple of days there has been an apparent increase in seismic activity at (or I guess more accurately, under) Mount St Helens. Since yesterday morning there have been six earthquakes of magnitude 3.0 or greater and 12 quakes greater than magnitude 2.0 (ref: earthquake list for Mount St Helens).

Unfortunately, the view of the mountain has been obscured by clouds for several days now and we have no idea of any related outbursts or explosive activity that may be occurring.
