December 4, 2013 Forecast Results

In a recent post entitled An Observation on Typhoon Haiyan (Nov. 20), I formulated some forecasts for the period around Dec. 4, 2013. These forecasts were based on the two overlapping lunar cycles of perigee and maximum declination. On Dec. 4th, the Moon was also making important aspects to Uranus and Pluto. I had seen that this same setup in November had affected the Philippines coinciding with Typhoon Haiyan's arrival over the islands.

The first country that I thought would be affected by this setup was India, which I suspected would be hit by a cold front.


Around Dec. 4th, however, the southeastern portion of India was affected by a well-marked low pressure area that became Cyclone Madi. This was interesting since, as mentioned above, the lunar configurations of the previous month had resulted in Typhoon Haiyan. Here's the warning map issued on December 7th.

The next area of concern was the Rocky Mountain area of the United States. As shown in the astro-locality map below, the Moon, Uranus, and Pluto afflicted the area.

A winter storm dubbed "Cleon" by the Weather Channel dumped 20 to 30 inches of snow in some areas of the Rockies. Arctic air then plunged south across the region. The Weather Channel map below is for the evening of Dec. 3rd.

The last area centered in the western Atlantic just off the coast of Surinam.

South America

No major system or low pressure was reported there at this time. From the water vapor imagery map of Dec. 5th below, there may have been some minor convection at most.
