March 23-26, 2016 Forecast Results

Here are the results of the last of the March forecasts posted on January 9th of this year. The basis for the long-range weather forecast was the alignment of Jupiter and Saturn. This particular segment of the forecast was for the March 23-26 period. You can read the original forecast here.

The area to be affected by the alignment centered on the 80th degree of west longitude which takes in the eastern Great Lakes and runs southward through the Carolinas. The New England area was also to be affected as can be seen from the astro-locality map below.

Jupiter Saturn

On the 24th, a low pressure system over the eastern Great Lakes and a trailing cold front aligned itself with the Saturn line running through 80 west longitude. The Weather Channel map below shows the low and front.

Mar 24

My forecast expected strong storms with potential to bring torrential downpours and gusty winds. The National Weather Service reported on the 25th that "a strong cold front moving eastward through the Ohio Valley this evening will continue to fuel heavy rainfall and thunderstorms across portions of the central/eastern Gulf Coast to the lower Great Lakes."

AccuWeather also pointed out that the Mid-Atlantic would experience blustery conditions which "will mark an end to the above-average warmth" that had prevailed over the region.

The New England area also participated in the effects of the low and front as seen in the AccuWeather map below for Friday, the 25th.

24 Late week

The National Weather Service declared that "snow and freezing rain will move into portions of northern New England with up to a quarter of an inch of ice possible."
