Between these dates the Sun will participate in the Jupiter-Uranus configuration adding important energy to the mix. The potential exists for a strong front to move into the West Coast states bringing precipitation. The eastern portion of the country should see a strong cold front that ignites storm activity from the eastern Great Lakes through the Mid-Atlantic area as it moves eastward.
The strong cold front forecast over the eastern portions of the country arrived as scheduled. Here's the AccuWeather map showing the arctic push between the 7th and 10th.
AccuWeather also reported that the cold threatened significant losses of fruit crop in the northeastern U.S. and high winds for the New England area.
In addition, the forecast called for storm activity from the eastern Great Lakes through the Mid-Atlantic area. The next AccuWeather map shows that storm system on the 8th and 9th.
For the West Coast, the forecast mentioned a strong front bringing precipitation. On the 8th, AccuWeather meteorologists warned "Storm to soak San Diego to San Francisco this weekend." The storm was forecast to roll onto the California coast, threatening to bring flash flooding, gusty thunderstorms and travel delays. The AccuWeather map below shows the areas to be affected.
The National Weather Service reported that another upper-level low would move in over the Pacific Northwest affecting Southern California and the Southwest. The low then remained nearly stationary from southern Idaho to the southern Rockies bringing numerous showers over the Desert Southwest and California.
