Early Tropical System in the Gulf?

May 19-23, 2007:
The New Moon of May 16th will pave the way for the development of a possible early tropical storm system to affect the Gulf Coast region centering around Louisiana and Mississippi. Jupiter and Uranus, now forming a weather-disrupting 90 degree angle, will be jolted into action on the aforementioned dates by Mercury's opposition and cuadrature.

These planetary combinations are known to produce high velocity winds and stormy conditions. The New Moon localizes their influence in and around the Louisiana-Mississippi area.
Although this weather pattern has the potential to be tropical in nature, it may of course manifest as some other type of severe weather. Since severe weather is also indicated over the Rockies at this time with the likelihood of strong storms over the Colorado-New Mexico area. Another possible scenario is that the weather system over the Rockies transits eastward and intensifies over the Louisiana-Mississippi area.

May 8-10, 2007:
Severe weather potential exists over the Rockies as well as over the Northeast and New England. Low pressure systems are indicated over both these areas.
May 27-29, 2007:
A storm system forming over the Mississippi Valley will intensify over the Northeast. One possible scenario calls for a strong surface low to crank up over the area ushering in gusty winds and rain as the system moves over the Northeast towards New England and Nova Scotia.

Dr. William Gray on Global Warming:

"I mean, there’s almost an equation you can write: the degree to which you believe global warming is causing major hurricanes to increase is inversely proportional to your knowledge about these storms."
