East and West Coast Storms October 8-12, 2007 Forecast Results

Long-range forecasts posted back in September called for the East Coast to succumb to stormy and windy conditions due to the passage of a strong cold front, and for a storm system to hit the West Coast. The forecasts pinpointed the dates between October 8th and 12th based on the Jupiter-Uranus square.

East Coast Forecast

October 8-10

The Jupiter-Uranus pair is triggered again on the 8th and 9th of October when the Moon and Sun join in the configuration. Storms and windy conditions due to the passage of a strong cold front are likely over the Northeast.


The above Accuweather Map shows a strong cold front affecting the Northeast and the development of a coast storm. According to Accuweather "As a stronger shot of colder air invades the mid-Atlantic Thursday, an area of low pressure will strengthen off the coastline. The low, undergoing further intensification, will continue to trek northward up the New England coast Friday. The Northeast will have widespread showers Thursday with a steadier rain soaking upstate New York, New England and the St. Lawrence Valley of Canada Thursday night into Friday. On the west side of the low, strong winds will howl across the entire Northeast Friday."

West Coast Forecast

Oct 9-12

A number of charts localize the effects of the Jupiter-Uranus square over the western U.S. I think we can count on a storm system hitting the West Coast and pushing into the Rockies.


Accuweather reported;

Northwest Storm Impact Updated: Tuesday, October 09, 2007 9:59 AM

...Low pressure approaching the coast will bring high winds of 30-50 mph and heavy rain. The area expected to be hit hardest will be the northern California coast to the northern Oregon coast. Much of the activity will remain west of the Cascades due to the disruptions they frequently cause to incoming storms. On the heels of this storm, another will move into the region on Thursday.

Southwest Setup Updated: Wednesday, October 10, 2007 7:21 AM

A low pressure system will move through the Pacific Northwest Wednesday, accompanied by showers. However, there is another low pressure system that will take a more southerly track Friday into the northern California region. The low will deliver rain along the coast with some showers farther inland. The position of the low will also bring an onshore flow to Southern California, resulting in widespread low clouds along the coast. Winds will turn gusty across the mountains and deserts.

What happened to Manhattan?

In the "New World" published by Johan De Laet in 1625, he described Manhattan Island as follows:

The land is excellent and agreeable, full of noble forest trees and grape vines, and nothing is wanting but the labor and industry of man to render it one of the finest and most fruitful lands in that part of the world.
