Sept 7-10, 2009 Forecast Results

The Weather Alternative long-range forecast for Sept 7-10 was based on the Solar Eclipse of March 29, 2006. Here's what the forecast called for:

Mars will trigger the solar eclipse of March 29, 2006. The Sun and Moon ascended through Nova Scotia and transit Mars will cut through the Windward Islands at this time. Severe weather, which may be tropical in nature, may afflict these areas now.

As can be seen from the Accuweather map above, the main action was a storm system along the U.S. East Coast. No storm system affected the Nova Scotia area as high pressure held on tight over eastern Canada.

As far as the Windward Islands go, the National Weather Service reported on September 8th that due to the approach of a tropical wave showers would increase in coverage across the Leeward Islands, which are just north of the Windwards.

Saturn Uranus opposition will be 9/13 - 9/15 What does the slow moving opposition apply to weather?

The Weather Alternative said...

Negative aspects to Uranus, such as the square and oppostion, can provoke high wind velocities. Since we're in hurricane season, one possibility is a tropical system. The opposition can also mean low pressure or storm systems. In the Solar Ingress chart this opposition takes place over the Mississippi Valley and was one factor I used in the forecast for Sept 11-18, 2009. You can read that here

These oppositions linger for quite a while before and after they are exact and can affect the weather for a whole season, sometimes more.
