July 20-29, 2012, Forecast Results

The Weather Alternative post of June 3, 2012 contained long-range weather forecasts for the period of July 20-29, 2012. Let's look at how these forecasts turned out.


The first forecast concentrated on the period between July 20-23. The forecast stated that the areas of the U.S. that had experienced severe weather during November 26-27, 2011 would now experience another round of severe weather since the same astrological set-up was being triggered again. Back in November the Upper Midwest and mid-Mississippi Valley were slammed by rain and snow, which then progressed on to douse eastern Tennessee and the Appalachians.

I thought we could expect an increase in moisture and temperatures over the Plains leading to storms bringing heavy rain. These would then continue eastward over the Mississippi Valley and Appalachians.


By the 20th and 21st, weather forecasters were reporting on the sizzling heat that was gripping the Plains. Heat that drove temperatures 5 to 15 degrees above normal. A frontal boundary draped itself across the Tennessee Valley. The same area of the Upper Midwest that took a hit back in November was now under the gun again. On the 21st, the area from South Dakota to Wisconsin received 1 inch downpours. Once again, as in November, the mid-Mississippi Valley was hit with flash flooding due to drenching thunderstorms. Further south in the lower Mississippi Valley, Jackson, MS, picked up 2.55 inches of rain, more than half of what they get in a normal July. Severe downpours continued in the northern Plains on the 23rd.


The next section of the forecast dealt with the period around July 26-27. A previous astrological set-up was also being triggered in this case. Severe weather was to be expected in the form of above-average rainfall over the Mississippi Valley and eastern U.S. similar to, but not as intense, as the heavy rains that hit the Mississippi Valley back in April and May of 2011.
26 Severe


This first map for the 26th, shows the area of the central and eastern U.S. that were experiencing severe thunderstorms. The storms impacted millions and snarled air travel across the area. 27 Severe Storms

This next map is for the 27th and shows the lower Mississippi Valley and eastern U.S. under the threat of storms that could produce small hail, strong winds, and torrential rain. My forecast also called for windy conditions over the Rockies, but none were reported.


The last section of the forecast predicted tropical activity over the Lesser Antilles and in and around San Salvador in Central America.


On July 28th, Accuweather reported that the tropics were once again coming to life after about a month of dormancy. A tropical wave was approaching the Lesser Antilles and arrived there on the 30th. It did not develop further. Not much developed over Central America except for moderate to strong convection over Panama and Costa Rica.

Introduction to the Weather Alternative

Atheists themselves used to be very comfortable in maintaining that the universe is eternal and uncaused. The problem is that they can no longer hold that position because of modern evidence that the universe started with the Big Bang. So they can't legitimately object when I make the same claim about God-he is eternal and he is uncaused. --William Lane Craig
