On the 16th, the Weather Channel reported "Wind Maker Rolls into the Plains and Midwest." Their post on the 17th stated "Rain and showers spiral around a large storm system centered in the Great Lakes. It will be wet from the northern and central Plains eastward to the Ohio Valley."

Between the 16th and 17th, this storm system was responsible for wind gusts near hurricane strength over the Plains that spread blustery and chilly conditions to the Ohio Valley. Powerful wind gusts swept into Kansas and Missouri on the 18th, and a powerful storm lingered over Minnesota and Wisconsin.

October 17-19, 2012
Mercury will now activate the position of Venus and most likely bring a front or low pressure system that affects 84 west longitude from Michigan down through Florida.

This forecast was posted on Sept 9th and can be found here. The following Weather Channel map is for October 17th and shows a cold front pushing toward the aforementioned area.
