Rain and Wind for the Northeast

We're just a few days past Uranus' direct station and the cold
weather breeding planet is living up to its reputation. The Weather Alternative forecast for November 24-28, 2007 stated that Uranus' direct station and the Sun's first square to the most recent lunar eclipse would bring a strong cold front and noticeable storms over the Northeast U.S.

The Weather Channel graphic at the right shows the low-pressure system creating a stormy and rainy night in the Northeast. Weather forecasters reported that the storm is bringing soaking rains to much of the Northeast, some lake-effect snows near the Great Lakes, as well as a wintry mix to Upstate New York and parts of New England.

That's not all. As shown in the accompanying Accuweather map, behind the storm, the Great Lakes and Northeast will see increasing west to northwest winds gusting up to 40 mph.

In an earlier long-range forecast for November 23-25, 2007, The Weather Alternative called for a storm system to plague the New England area.

The storm hit a day earlier (22nd) than forecast and then ushered in cold air on strong, northwesterly winds on the 23rd as seen in the maps below.
