March 2015 Forecast Results

Here are the results of The Weather Alternative forecasts for March 2015. The first forecast period for March 11-14 zeroed in on the U.S. East Coast. I expected similar weather to that of November 17, 2014 when a strong winter storm brought a low pressure area and frigid winds to the Northeast and New England as well as low pressure systems from the Carolinas northward.

Here are some of the weather headlines from that period. On the 13th, AccuWeather reported, "Northeast Storm to Raise Flooding Risk, Bring Wintry Travel." On the 14th, the National Weather Service warned, "Heavy Snow to Impact Northern New England." 

The flooding mentioned by AccuWeather was to affect the central Appalachians to the mid-Atlantic and create slippery travel and power outages in New England. The heavy snow to impact northern New England was due to a redeveloping low over the Gulf of Maine. 

The AccuWeather map below shows the system on the 14th with even some flooding for Long Island and southern New England. It was this storm that added two more inches of snow to the Boston total for the season making it snowiest season on record with a total of 108.6 inches. 




The next forecast was for the March 16-19 period. I thought windy conditions would affect California and stormy weather would hit the Pacific Northwest.

The National Weather Service reported on the 16th that unsettled weather would affect the Pacific Northwest. Then for the 18th they reported that a closed upper-level low will develop over Southern California and Northwestern Mexico a chance of thunderstorms resulting in brief heavy rains and small hail. A similar setup was reported for central California but no weather systems of major importance.

March 2015 Weather Forecasts

There are some planetary alignments in March that have the potential to result in some interesting weather patterns. I'd like to comment on two periods in March. One affects the East Coast U.S. and the other the West Coast.

March 11-14, 2015

This period features the conjunction of Mars and Uranus, and the square of Mars and Pluto. These aspects by Mars serve to trigger the Uranus-Pluto square beforehand which is exact on the 16th. What makes this even more important is that the conjunction takes place on the degree of the previous lunar eclipse of October 8, 2014. Here is the astro-locality map for that eclipse.



Notice the lines that fall over the New England area. This is where the Sun and Moon were rising and setting at the time of the eclipse. It is this point that will be triggered by the Mars-Uranus-Pluto combination.

The last time Mars activated this eclipse degree was on November 15, 2014. By the 17th of November, Winter Storm Bozeman (as nicknamed by the Weather Channel) was over New England. The AccuWeather map below shows the weather that affected the area.



The following Weather Channel map presents another view of the November 17th storm. We see multiple low pressure system running along the East Coast much like the lines in our astro-locality map has many planetary lines affecting the East Coast from the Carolinas northward.



We may expect similar weather between March 11th and 14th this year. The Mars-Uranus combination usually brings energetic weather systems and gusty winds. Mars-Pluto is also very disruptive to weather conditions. So we may see a strong front or low pressure system(s) that affects the Carolinas northward through New England with windy and stormy conditions.

March 16-19, 2015

Saturn will make its retrograde station on the 14th and then receive a square from Mercury on the 16th. The astro-locality map for the winter season places Saturn over California as can be seen by the black line in the map below.



The other yellow line represents the position of Jupiter, which also plays an important role in relation to the developing weather pattern there. This is because Jupiter will oppose the planetary position held by Mars at the beginning of the winter season.

So, what kind of weather can we expect? Well, last year Saturn was also placed over the West Coast in the seasonal winter map. At the time Saturn made its retrograde station last year on March 2nd, the days following showed energetic storm systems that entered the Pacific Northwest even affecting northern and central California at times.

When Mercury squared Saturn last year, there were strong and gusty winds in Nevada, New Mexico and southern California but not much moisture. As for the Mars-Jupiter combination, it is a storm-breeding aspect. Taken together we can probably count on a wind event for the California area with perhaps stormy conditions potentially affecting the Pacific Northwest.

Wet and Windy West Coast Results: January 2015

My forecast for January 28-31, 2015 called for wet and windy West Coast weather for Washington, Oregon, and California. This was based on certain planetary alignments such as the Sun's conjunction to Mercury which excites wind velocities, and Venus' alignment with Saturn, which is known for heavy downfall. Both of these congregated over the West Coast as shown in the astro-locality map below.



My idea was that these two alignments would work together, but in actuality the one seemed to block the other. The wet weather was experienced over the Southwestern states over Arizona, New Mexico, and the Four Corners region. A "closed low" over southern California and strong low-level winds brought an abundance of Pacific moisture onshore which fueled moderate to heavy precipitation there. According to the National Weather Service, a beneficial steady soaking light to moderate rain affected the mountains of southern California. The following Weather Channel map shows the low over the above mentioned area.



As far as windy conditions go, there were various reports of breezy to windy conditions over northern California, gusty northeast winds over Nevada, and some breezy conditions over southern California. The actual weather experienced was very different than what the forecast called for.

Results of East Coast Nor’easter and Southern California Storm

In a long-range weather forecast posted last December 13th, I gave my take on the noteworthy weather that I thought would affect the East and West Coasts between the 19th and 25th of January. Let’s see what happened.

 East Coast

My forecast relied heavily on the October 23rd 2014 solar eclipse which was now being activated and previously had produced, according to astro-meteorology, a Nor’easter over the U.S. Northeast and New England. One scenario I suggested was a low pressure area over the Carolinas that would then strengthen and move northward to the Northeast and New England with potential to develop into a   Nor’easter. On the 23rd and 24th as can be seen in the Accuweather map below, a low developed and passed over the Carolinas becoming a major winter storm that affected the Northeast and New England.  Accuweather’s headline was, “Major Snowstorm May Hit I-95 Corridor From DC to NYC, Boston.”  




Now, what’s coming on the heels of that is another major blizzard that starts to affect the Northeast and New England just a day after my forecast period ended on the 25th. That is to say that on the 26th, a blizzard will, in the words of Accuweather, shut down Boston and the New York City area. The next Accuweather map shows the extent of the storm.




West Coast

Due to certain planetary aspects I envisioned a storm system over the area, especially Southern California. Now, I thought that this storm system entailed moisture, which is desperately needed there, however, there was no precipitation. Because of Mercury’s retrograde station, which is a wind-breeding influence, my forecast also called for windy conditions as far south as Southern California. The windy conditions over Southern California were what did materialize.

 Starting on the 21st and continuing through the 25th, the National Weather Service began to post wind warnings for Southern California. Their posts warned of locally gusty winds, and strong and damaging winds, or what are known as Santa Ana winds. Fox news reported more than 54,000 customers who were affected by power outages in the Los Angeles area due to fierce Santa Ana winds that toppled trees and knocked down power poles across the area. The area was also besieged by dangerous rip currents and high surf due to a storm system in the Pacific Ocean. Below is a picture of high surf crashing over the Southern California coast on the 24th.

Wet and Windy West Coast January 28-31, 2015

West Coast inhabitants should prepare for strong winds and heavy rain between the 28th and 31st of January. According to the long-range weather forecast method employed by Johannes Kepler, the 17th century mathematician, astronomer, and astrologer, the planetary alignments at the end of January spell weather woes for Washington, Oregon, and California.

The forecast is based on alignments between the Sun and Mercury, as well as Venus and Saturn. The conjunction of the Sun and Mercury has been observed by astro-meteorologists to excite wind velocities and cause atmospheric turbulence when these occupy key positions in astro-locality weather maps. At the same time, Venus will form a quadrature to Saturn. Long-range weather forecasters have found this alignment to coincide with low pressure systems and heavy downfall. The astro-locality map below, shows how these members of our solar system congregate over the West Coast states and form a "crossing" over northern California.

December 2014 Forecast Results Part II

The last forecast of the December 2014 forecasts focused on December 29th and the following few days. I mentioned that two solar eclipses were being activated by the transits of Mars and Jupiter. Consequently, we were to look for a weather reaction in the form of a front or low pressure system over the Great Lakes and Northeast. I also mentioned an invasion of cold air over the Rockies.

The first AccuWeather map below from December 27th shows blustery conditions setting in over the Great Lakes area and headed eastward on New Year's Eve.



The invasion of cold air mentioned in the forecast for the Rockies is shown in the next AccuWeather map. This map covers the period between December 29th and 31st. Notice that the core of the cold is over the Rockies.
