Hurricane Henriette Fulfills Long-range Forecast!

The Weather Alternative posted the following forecast on August 10, 2007.

Sept 2-4
Different models show possible tropical activity over or near the Baja. The first one places a Sun/Jupiter crossing southwest of the Baja at 112W/22N. The second sets up a Uranus/Moon crossing at 117W/28N, and the third places a Mars/Uranus crossing at 114W/31N. A tropical system, or the remnants of one may hit the area. A second scenario is that moisture is pumped up over the Baja into the desert Southwest.

Today Hurricane Henritte will fulfill the initial forecast and will eventually the second scenario when moisture is pumped up over the U.S. Southwest.

Today The Weather Channel reports:

In the Eastern Pacific, Hurricane Henriette continues to make its way towards the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula. At 8 am Pacific time, the center of Henriette was about 60 miles southeast of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph, making Henriette a category 1 hurricane however further strengthening may occur today.
Henriette is moving to the north-northwest near 10 miles per hour. Minimum pressure was near 972 millibars. Henriette is expected to make a landfall this afternoon along the southern Baja California Coast.

After final landfall, the remnant moisture from Henriette will likely bring rain and thunderstorms to the Southwest United States.

Science can give us the "know-how," but it cannot give us the "know-why." We are dependent on revelation for many kinds of information, the absence of which leaves us with a quite incomplete picture.- Paul E. Little
