We continue to report the results of long-range weather forecasts drawn up six months ago (July 2011) and published in the Feb/Mar issue of The Mountain Astrologer magazine. These forecasts are based on planetary cycles and alignments. Here's the next forecast in the series.

January 27-29, 2012
Winter storminess is indicated for most of the country based on Mercury's squares to Saturn and Jupiter, but in and around Louisiana and the Great Lakes are two places that appear to stand out for winter precipitation.

The above Accuweather map shows the severe storm setup for Thursday, January 26th, one day ahead of the long-range forecast period. Notice the severe threat over the Louisiana area. Mobile, Ala., was smacked by heavy rain and strong winds during the storms during the midday hours Thursday. Thunderstorms began slamming Louisiana as early as the evening of the 25th.

The next Accuweather map is for Saturday, January 28th.

In Europe, Scandinavia should be in the path of a winter storm and Portugal should receive a good soaking while storm-brewing ingredients come together over the east coast of China.

26 Blizzard Europe
Snow was reported across the Scandinavian countries of Norway, Denmark, and northern Sweden on the 26th, but the big story was the blizzard that dumped more than 2 feet of snow on southeastern Europe particularly Bulgaria and Romania. No rain was reported across Portugal.

Conventional Meteorologists Who Aren't Afraid to Challenge Human-induced Climate Change
"But think again. Tens of thousands American scientists don't agree that anthropogenic, or man-made, global warming is threatening society as we know it."
David Paul of KLFY-TV Lafayette, LA
Simply put, the mathematical correlation between an increase in atmospheric CO2 and temperature is very weak"
Herb Stevens of WLNE Providence, RI
Is the Earth warming? Yes, I think it is. But is man causing that? No. It's a simple climate cycle our climate goes through over thousands of years."
Grant Dade of KLTV-TV Tyler, TX
If manmade global warming is not junk science, it is surely bad science. Thanks to climategate, we now know..there has been no statistically significant global warming since 1995."
Kevin Williams of WHEC-TV Rochester, NY
