California Drought and El Niño Results

In my August 29th post of this year, I presented some forecasts for California and surrounding areas. These forecasts were based on the planetary alignment between Jupiter and Neptune that took place on the 17th of September, 2015. In astro-meteorology, the alignment of these two planets is indicative of isolated torrential downpours and flash flooding.

I listed a number of dates in September and October when I thought this alignment would be active in bringing rain to the California and Arizona areas. The first date I mentioned was the period in and around September 17th.


Accuweather reported that on September 15th, Los Angeles experienced the rainiest day of the year.

On the 16th, the Pacific Northwest experienced soaking rain and flash flood potential as shown in the following Accuweather map.

16 West Coast 2

On the 19th, forecasters warned that rain was poised to wallop the Southwest U.S. raising flooding risk from the 21st through the 23rd. As shown in the map below, 2 to 4 inches of rain was to hit southern California and Arizona.

A larger area, of course, was being affected. The next Accuweather map shows the bigger picture and the extent of the flooding rain.

I'll post more results as the next forecast dates arrive.
