Some December, 2007 Long-range Forecasts

December 6-10, 2007
Mercury's square to Saturn on December 6th will be followed by the Sun's square to Uranus on the the 7th. The all-important solar ingress map for the season places these over the East Central States and the Northeast. The New Moon chart localizes the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction (exact on the 11th) over the Northeast as well. All of these planetary aspects are heavy hitters when it comes to weather. The transit Moon will activate the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction on the 10th. A major storm system will plow through the eastern U.S. at this time and continue through the Northeast. Travel conditions will most likely be dangerous. Attention should be paid to local weather services for details regarding this storm.

December 7-9, 2007
Perhaps related to the aforementioned weather system, planetary influences over the country's midsection show an invasion of cold air and windy conditions over Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska. This may be due to a low-pressure system that tracks through the area. Severe storms and colder conditions are also anticipated over the south central Texas area.

December 15-17, 2007
December's New Moon promises storms and colder conditions to develop in and around the Tennessee and Alabama area due to Saturn's placement in this lunation. Farther west, the British Columbia coast and the Pacific Northwest should prepare for a strong winter storm to visit the area.

November 2007 Hurricane and Severe Weather Outlook

ATLANTA — Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue stepped up to a podium outside the state Capitol on Tuesday and led a solemn crowd of several hundred people in a prayer for rain on his drought-stricken state."We've come together here simply for one reason and one reason only: To very reverently and respectfully pray up a storm," Perdue said after a choir provided a hymn.

Georgia and its neighboring states are caught in a drought that threatens public water supplies. Perdue has ordered water restrictions, launched a legal battle against the release of water from federal reservoirs and appealed to President Bush.
"It's time to appeal to him who can and will make a difference," Perdue told the crowd.

God bless him for having the conviction to do this.

Addendum Nov 20, 2007

Perhaps the Lord is beginning to answer their prayers. Today Accuweather posted the following map and comment.

Mother Nature will give the South something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. A cold front will spread showers and thunderstorms over the drought-stricken region Wednesday into Thursday with noticeably cooler air to follow before a more widespread rain could reach the region late in the weekend.

It's a shame they can't say God is doing it. Today, as I was reading about the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving, I came across this bit of information. Three years after the Pilgrims celebrated Thanksgiving, they experienced a drought.

The 3rd year brought a spring and summer that was hot and dry with the crops dying in the fields. Governor Bradford ordered a day of fasting and prayer, and it was soon thereafter that the rain came.
