At that time there were heavy showers and thunderstorms in a number of western states due to a potent disturbance moving through the Rockies. There was also damaging high surf along the California coast much to the delight of local surfers.
In my forecast for October 11th, I expected a similar weather pattern to affect the Rockies and Great Basin with more intensity for Southern California possibly including rainfall, flooding, landslides, and coastal erosion.
On October 10th and 11th, the National Weather Service began to post warnings for dangerous sneaker waves along the beaches of Washington, Oregon, and California. Sneaker waves are sudden and unexpected waves which can reach further up the beach than normal and sweep beach goers out to sea. These large waves were due to a strong storm in the Gulf of Alaska. The interesting thing is that there was also damaging surf along the California coast when the original Mars-Saturn conjunction took place in August.
The Gulf of Alaska storm also brought a cold front through the western states and gusty winds to Washington, Oregon, California, Utah, Nevada, and Montana. The cold front did bring some showers and thunderstorms but no large-scale rainfall like I thought.
One last interesting point that I didn't realize at the time of my post in September was that the Mars-Saturn conjunction also affected Japan as can be seen from the astro-locality map below.
So this area was also being affect on October 11th. From the 12th through the 14th, Typhoon Vongfong passed over the Japanese islands as shown in the AccuWeather map below.
