Atlantic Hurricane Season 2014: November

 We've found over the years that Solar and Lunar Eclipse charts offer important information when it comes to formulating long-range weather forecasts based on planetary cycles. The next Lunar Eclipse will take place on October 8, 2014. An interesting planetary configuration occurs along the U.S. East Coast involving the planets Venus and Pluto. The astro-locality map below shows how these planets converge over the Bahamas in addition to affecting areas from the Carolinas northward through New York.


This pair will be triggered into action by the planet Mars between Nov 8-10 this year. At the same time, other planetary alignments including the square of Venus and Jupiter, and the Mars-Pluto conjunction all affect this same area in other important charts used in long-range weather forecasting.

This period is followed by another round of severe weather-producing aspects on the 12th and 13th of November. These planetary alignments include the conjunction of Venus and Saturn as well as the  squares between Mars and Uranus, and the Sun and Jupiter. Once again important charts place these over the U.S. East Coast.

There are a number of ways this could play itself out on weather patterns. Between Nov 8-13 there is the potential for a tropical system to form or strengthen over the Bahamas and be drawn up over the Carolinas continuing its path along the East Coast as it affects the Northeast and New England areas. Another scenario would be that an actual tropical system does not form but that tropical moisture is drawn up over the East Coast and, in combination with other developing weather conditions, results in strong storms or severe weather conditions from the Carolinas through the Northeast and New England.

Nor'easter: Close Fulfillment of Long-range Prediction

In my May 20, 2014, post entitled East Coast Hurricane? September 2014, I listed September 20-23 of this year as a period when the East Coast U.S. could experience a tropical system or severe weather activity. The forecast read:

Sept 20-23
There are 3 planetary alignments working together now. Venus parallels Uranus, Mars squares Neptune, and Pluto makes its direct station. A number of key charts localizes these planetary pairs over the East Coast. What makes it more interesting is that Saturn will oppose the Solar Eclipse degree of May 9, 2013. This places Neptune over the East Coast as Mars makes its square.

AccuWeather headlines warn Nor'easter to Soak DC to NYC, Lash East Coast With Wind and Flooding. They further explain that on Wednesday, the 24th, the highest risk for coastal flooding extends North Carolina to southeastern Virginia and the Delmarva Peninsula. Then on Thursday, the 25th, the risk includes New Jersey and the New York City area. Generally, 1 to 2 inches of rain are expected from eastern North Carolina through southern New England with 4 inches occurring locally along with 35 to 45 mph wind gusts. This closely fulfills the above forecast posted over 4 months ago. The AccuWeather map below gives an idea.

September 14-15, 2014 Forecast Results

At the end of last May, I posted some possible dates for hurricane activity. I mentioned the period around September 14-15 of this year because the previous Solar Eclipse of May 20, 2012 was being activated at this time. That eclipse had a history of producing some tropical systems. Although I wasn't expecting a devastating system, I thought it was worth watching at this time.

Back in 2012, I mentioned some areas in the U.S. that were to be affected by the eclipse, as I mentioned in that post, those were the areas in and around South Carolina, and the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

Here's what transpired around September 14-15. No tropical systems affected the areas mentioned. The NWS weather map below for September 13th shows North and South Carolina highlighted for the possibility of flash flooding due to a front and low pressure system. The next day, the Weather Channel reported, "Some of the rain could be locally heavy from South Carolina to northern Florida and the northern Gulf Coast."




As far as the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast U.S. was concerned, AccuWeather showed a front and showers affecting those areas during the forecast period.

September 7-10, 2014 Forecast Results

The May 20th, 2014 Weather Alternative post talked about possible tropical activity or severe weather to affect North Carolina, Virginia, and the East Coast areas between September 7-10. The East Coast did experience severe weather at this time. Although it was not due to a tropical system, the combination of tropical moisture and a disturbance moving along a frontal zone provoked the rainfall. The AccuWeather map below shows the area from Florida through North Carolina as the target for heavy downpours on the 6th.




The area from Virginia through Maine was also subjected to heavy thunderstorms with damaging winds and flooding downpours on the 6th as seen in the next AccuWeather map.



On the 8th, AccuWeather reported that rain would continue to drench the East Coast into Tuesday, the 9th. The Weather Channel map for the 8th shows a low pressure area and stationary front over the Carolinas.



AccuWeather's Hurricane Expert, Dan Kottlowski, explained that the feature was not likely to develop into a tropical system. The rounds of heavy rain and flash flooding, AccuWeather said, would creep from the Carolinas through the Mid-Atlantic area. All in all this long-range weather forecast accurately described the weather scenario over 3 months in advance.

October 11, 2014 Western Weather Woes

From time to time we've looked at the effects of the Mars-Saturn conjunction on the weather. We've seen how some of the most energetic weather patterns come on the heels of Mars-Saturn conjunctions. Windy, destructive storms attend the conjunction and other hard aspects such as the square, opposition, and parallel. I’ve also shown how when these conjunctions are later triggered by the outer planets (Mars through Pluto), severe weather patterns ensue over the same areas initially affected by the conjunction.

These conjunctions take place about every two years. The last one was the conjunction of August 25, 2014. The astro-locality map below shows the area of the U.S. the conjunction affected.



The day after, on August 26th, the Weather Channel reported that heavy showers and thunderstorms affected Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, and Nevada with torrential downpours, flash flooding, damaging wind gusts, and hail. This was due to a potent disturbance that moved through the central Rockies closely fitting the position of Mars-Saturn in the astro-locality map. As can be seen from this map, the Mars-Saturn line passed through southern California which at this time also experienced damaging high surf, very strong rip currents, and coastal flooding. Check out the Accuweather map below and the waves in the second pic.

On October 11th of this year, Jupiter will activate the disruptive Mars-Saturn conjunction activating the same area covered in the astro-locality map above. At this time, there will also be a Venus-Uranus opposition that will affect the West Coast States (map not shown). This opposition normally coincides with lower ranges of temperature, wind, and rain. When overlaying the two maps together, they both affect the southern California area suggesting a severe weather pattern there. So, around the 11th of October the West Coast States, Great Basin, and Rockies should be subjected to a similar weather pattern that affected the central Rockies around August 25-28 this year. Southern California may be in for a more intense weather pattern than the other areas. This could mean increased rainfall, flooding, landslides, and coastal erosion.  

The Climate Prediction Center, as of September 4, 2014, has issued an El Niño Watch meaning that the chance of an El Niño forming this fall and winter is at 60-65 percent. El Niños affect the storm tracks over the western U.S. pushing them southward toward Southern California. The above planetary analysis may be indicating such a southern trajectory during the days before and after October 11, 2014.

Tropical Storm Cristobal and Mexico Results

In an August 23, 2014 post entitled "The Track of Future Tropical Storm Cristobal," I suggested a possible track that the storm would follow if it developed. My suggestion was based on the Solar Eclipse of November 25, 2011 which was being activated on August 25th. As seen from the astro-locality map below, the track passed through the North Carolina coast and northward.




The following Weather Channel map shows that by the 27th, Hurricane Cristobal was not directly  following the line shown above but paralleling it offshore.

At the most, the effects on the weather for the area near the eclipse line were rough surf and breezy conditions. The Accuweather map below points this out.


In and earlier forecast posted on July 7th of this year, I explained how certain planetary alignments over the Yucatan of Mexico could be indicative of the formation of a tropical system between August 24 through 27. The astro-locality map below shows the area in question.



On the 25th, the Weather Channel reported that the Gulf of Mexico was now an area to watch. By the 27th, they reported that thunderstorms were flaring up over the Southern Gulf near the Yucatan which would then feed into a surge of moisture, which by the 28th brought drenching showers and rough surf to Texas. Accuweather is now reporting (although later than I expected) a tropical wave to affect this area as shown in their map below.

The Track of Future Tropical Storm Cristobal

Meteorologists are expecting conditions to become more conducive for the low pressure area over the Caribbean Islands to develop into Tropical Storm Cristobal. Some even think that the system could intensify into a hurricane. The Accuweather graphic below suggests the possible tracks that it might take if it develops as expected.




The Solar Eclipse of November 25, 2011 may have something to offer regarding the storm's track. On August 25th, this eclipse will be spurred into action by the New Moon that takes place on the same day. Then on the 26th the position that Mercury held at that time will also be activated by other factors. As shown in the astro-locality map below, this pinpoints the area along 77 west longitude which passes through the North Carolina coast and then northward indicating a possible landfall over North Carolina. There is always a chance that this particular planetary alignment might signify some other type of severe weather condition that develops over 77 west longitude.
