Potential Hurricane Strike Areas July 2014

It's hurricane season again and time to look at some times and places where hurricanes or tropical systems might make landfall. These forecasts are based on planetary cycles, and since these can be known years in advance, this provides about one of the only ways of making long-range weather predictions. At the bottom of this post, you will find links to long-range weather forecasts for past hurricane seasons and their results.

We'll only be looking at the month of July and the very beginning of August. There are a number of indications that can be interpreted as potential hurricane harbingers. Sometimes, however, tropical systems do not materialize over the forecast areas, but other types of severe weather manifest such as severe thunderstorms, heavy rains, etc.

July 11-13, 2014

The first indication appears at the time of the First Quarter Moon of July 5th. This lunar phase sets up important planetary crossings over the southern Mississippi Valley area and the eastern Gulf of Mexico as shown in the map below. These planetary crossings are activated around July 11th and 12th. There is a strong probability that severe weather will affect the mid and southern Mississippi Valley area and that a tropical system may develop over the eastern Gulf of Mexico and affect the Florida Peninsula. If not an actual tropical system, tropical moisture may be drawn up over the area increasing rain for the Florida area.

July 18-20, 2014

The next indication comes from the Full Moon chart of July 12th. As shown in the map below, another planetary crossing affects the southern tip of Florida. This crossing is activated around July 18th and 19th and may indicate the formation or the passage of a tropical system over the Florida Peninsula as it heads northward toward the Carolinas. Once again, it may represent a severe weather pattern that is not an organized tropical system.

August 2-4, 2014

The last indication appears in the New Moon chart of July 26th. This chart sets up planetary crossings along the North Carolina coast--a favorite hurricane hangout. This is activated around August 2nd and 3rd. The map below does not show the original crossing but the later positions on August 2nd. At this time, the planetary crossings affect New York City and the surrounding areas. On these dates, certain planetary alignments suggest that a tropical system could progress from North Carolina up the coast to the Northeast and New England areas. If not an actual tropical system, strong thunderstorms packing dangerous winds could be a likely scenario.
