Frigid Arctic Air Greets the New Year

From ancient times until the present, astro-meteorologists have
associated Saturn's influence with cold waves and falling temperatures. Yesterday's trine between the Sun and Saturn corresponds to the cold wave shown by the Accuweather map at left and the following comment by their meteorologists:

Arctic air will plunge into the northern Plains today. Highs will be in the single digits across portions of North Dakota with no warmth expected in the short term. Strong high pressure over the northern Rockies will help pump this cold air deeper into the region on Tuesday, with single-digit highs as far south as central Iowa. The high temperature on New Year's Day in Fargo, N.D., will max out at 0 degrees. Cold temperatures will continue across the northern Plains on Wednesday before warmer air works back into the area on Thursday.

Unfortunately, The Weather Alternative long-range forecast for December 31-January 2 failed
to take the Sun's trine to Saturn into consideration and forecast Rising temperatures...for the Mississippi Valley, which result in storm potential over the area.

The astro-locality map at left shows the Sun's position at the moment of Sun trine Saturn on December 30th. Exactly over the area of the country where the cold front will pass.
