Forecast Results for Sept. 14-17, 2019

Here are the results of the September 14-17, 2019 long-range weather forecast that was posted on June 8, 2019.

The forecast read: The Jupiter-Neptune configuration will continue to affect the New England area throughout the summer season. One potential period for a tropical system to affect the area is between September 14-17. I think this one carries more punch with it, so we may be witnessing an actual tropical system at that time.

While a tropical system did originate at that time, it did not affect the New England area. By September 14th, Tropical Storm Humberto was off the Florida coast. It achieved hurricane status on the 15th as it began to turn away from the U.S. coast and head towards Bermuda. The closest it got to the New England area is shown in the map below. It was a couple of days after the forecast window and too far east.

The National Weather Service said that on Monday, Sept 16th, rain returned over parts of the lower Great Lakes into New England.
