Tropical Storm Cristobal and the Northeast

The Weather Alternative's long-range forecast for July 18-20 called for stormy conditions throughout the Northeast due to Mercury's opposition to Jupiter on the 19th and their contraparallel on the 21st.

Storms began to assail the Northeast on the 18th. Accuweather reported "Thunderstorms pounded portions of New York, New Hampshire and Maine on Friday afternoon (July 18). Some areas received pea- to marble-sized hail. Thunderstorm winds downed trees in Ferrisburg and North Hero, Vt."

More storms are expected today over New York and New England with strong wind gusts and hail.

It looks like Tropical Storm Cristobal will add to the mix. Today, conventional forecasters are noting that drenching showers and locally gusty thunderstorms are spreading slowly northward from the Carolinas to the Delmarva Peninsula and surrounding areas. Cristobal's expected path is seen at right.
