December 21-23, 2011 Forecast Results

This forecast is the first of those that will appear in the February 2012 edition of The Mountain Astrologer magazine. The first part of the forecast covers two areas of the States.

December 21-23, 2011
The first day of winter will be ushered in over the eastern U.S. on gusty northwest winds due to the Sun-Uranus square. As temperatures fall, wintry precipitation may develop in areas that have enough moisture available. A western storm will also unleash its precipitation over the Pacific Northwest.

Much colder air will push into the region as well.
