September 14-22, 2007 Forecast Results

Here are the results of some long-range forecasts posted back in August.

Forecast Sept 14-17

The Sun's square to Mars, and Mercury's parallel to Uranus will disrupt atmospheric conditions over the eastern Rockies and western Plains. This storm system will likely produce strong to severe thunderstorms over the area.


As can be seen from the Accuweather Map for September 17th, storms formed over the eastern Rockies and western Plains.

Accuweather reported:

Stormy in the Plains Updated: Monday, September 17, 2007 7:15 AM Heat over the southern Plains will be forced northward to the northern Plains where it will slam into a cooler, Canadian air mass that is inching into the Plains. Unsettled weather will develop from western Ontario to the central Plains. Some of the storms that form could produce gusty winds, hail and locally heavy rainfall.

Forecast Sept 17-19

The Sun's squares to Mars and Pluto are focused over the country's midsection at 97 west longitude. While strong storms can be expected over the Plains, the greatest intensity is indicated off the east coast of Mexico around 97 west longitude and 22 north latitude. This roughly corresponds to the southern portion of the state of Tamaulipas and the northern portion of the state of Veracruz. There is a good chance that this will result in a tropical system there. The western Texas Gulf Coast is within range of this influence.


Accuweather reported on September 18th:

Plains Storms

The Midwest Regional News story reports severe storms will erupt today from western Wisconsin to eastern Kansas as warm air flowing north collides with a cold front moving across the Midwest. Energy from the jet stream will aid in the development of the intense thunderstorms.

The Weather Alternative forecast called for a good chance of tropical activity along the east coast of Mexico, which did not develop. On the 18th, Accuweather issued this map calling for tropical activity in the eastern Gulf. This eventually became Subtropical Depression #10.

Forecast Sept 21-22

Atmospheric turbulence is still indicated for the Plains at this time as the Mars-Pluto opposition affects the 95th meridian. Storms and tornadoes are possible. Once again, the strongest concentration is found in the waters of the west central Gulf. This may just be a continuation or strengthening of the severe weather mentioned in the Sept 17-19 forecast.

A low-pressure system can be seen in the above Weather Channel Map for September 21st roughly over 95 west longitude. Accuweather reported the following:

A low passing through the northern Plains into Minnesota Friday will spark thunderstorms that may reach severe limits, especially in Wisconsin this evening. Already this morning, a tornado watch has been issued for parts of central and northern Minnesota. As a strong jet stream moves into the region, this afternoon, a window of opportunity exists for supercells to develop. The threat of tornadoes will be greatest in northern Wisconsin, but the threat of large hail and damaging winds will extend back into Minnesota.

The Weather Alternative forecast called for storm formation in the west central Gulf. At this time Subtropical Depression #10 formed in the eastern Gulf but hit the central Gulf States, as reported on the 21st by Accuweather:

The storm is currently bringing heavy rain to the Florida Panhandle, and that wet weather will spread along the central Gulf Coast as far west as New Orleans within the next 18 hours. Wind gusts along the coast might be as high as 55 miles per hour.

Smile for the cameras: there may be one watching you now.

(Mark Russell, Melbourne Age)

Melbourne is being watched as never before, with authorities relying on an estimated 40,000 or more closed-circuit television surveillance systems to monitor the activities of millions of people, 24 hours a day. With a ratio of about one camera for every 100 people living in Melbourne, most people would be caught on film several times a day, often without their knowledge.

"There was, of course, no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment.... You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and except in darkness, every movement scrutinized."—George Orwell, 1984.


Everyone was under observation in Orwell's 1984, being watched at any time, and that's how it's becoming in many big cities around the world—and little ones as well. The fear of criminals or terrorists has infected society after society, and rather than give people the Lord and teach them to love Him and their neighbors, they're concentrating on locking them up when they decide to prey on their neighbors. It's a messed-up world that not only doesn't build a fence at the top of the cliff or a hospital at the bottom, but decides to build a prison at the bottom instead, to incarcerate people after they've fallen into evil and crime!
