Thanksgiving Nor'easter

The recent Thanksgiving Nor'easter was a close fulfillment of the long-range forecast posted at the end of October. The forecast entitled November 22-25, 2014 East Coast Forecast told how November's New Moon was going to trigger the May 20, 2012 Solar Eclipse. As mentioned in that post, this eclipse meant the possibility of severe weather for the U.S. East Coast as shown in the astro-locality map below.

 In the past, this eclipse brought hurricane activity to the East Coast and sometimes heavy rain over the Carolinas as seen in this September 2014 post. That's what happened again around the 23rd and 24th of this month. The doppler radar for Nov. 23rd shows severe thunderstorms over that very area.

The forecast also mentioned that another possibility was that a front, running the length of the East Coast, would generate storms as it pushed eastward. The next Weather Channel map for the 24th shows the front approaching the East Coast.

I also mentioned that we should watch the East Coast area roughly between November 22-25. Well, on the 26th and Thanksgiving Day, a low pressure formed and traveled the East Coast from the Carolinas to New England and the Canadian Maritimes where, as a nor'easter, it brought rain and snow and caused power outages. See the Accuweather map below.
