Tuesday, August 25, 2009, 04:20 PM - ForecastsExpert? I'm sure he is an expert once the weather or tropical system has been spotted on radar. What nerve, what hubris the Weather Channel has to call themselves 'the Hurricane Authorities'.
Why do I say that? Although one day they may claim to call my work as their own, long range weather forecasting has been known for thousands of years, more recently in the 1600s via Johannes Kepler and in the 20th century, C. C. Zain and George J. Mcormack in the northern hemisphere are renown in the proper circles.
Down under there are several long range forecasters of old whose work is being carried on by Ken Ring http://www.predictweather.com . Ken is making milestones in his work. Tune in and know the real road to weather forecasting.

Sunday, August 16, 2009, 04:04 AM - ForecastsThe talking heads on the Weather Channel are agog with the abundance of overnight activity in the Atlantic and the Gulf. The tropical wave they have tracked for a few days, the one that passed over Florida into the Gulf, has intensified into tropical depression #4.
What if the same forecasters had the ability to develop a long range forecast? I'm sure they would claim it as their discovery!
Long range forecasting is a fact and I and my colleagues have proven its validity for 15 years. If you have my 2009 Hurricane Report that was prepared in January 2009, you would find that the forecast for the period of August 13, 2009 is 100% accurate.
We at Weathersage are truly the Home of the Long Range Hurricane Authorities. I should add that we are the authority on long range weather forecasting in general.
Monday, March 9, 2009, 08:38 AM - ForecastsMichael Reilly (Discovery Channel) writes an article about the strength of hurricanes and the lunar cycle impact. Researcher sees a trend in Atlantic storms; mixing tides could be factor. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29530066/ for the rest of this incredible story!
The results of the researchers may change the way we look at weather. The story basically says that the Moon could influence the weather. I can't help but be impressed with the discovery; what a wakeup call for the meteorologists to have discovered that phenomenon. Also in the article that the Moon's spooky influence on earth is legendary but the phenomena attributed to the Moon are almost exclusively superstition. It makes me smile, actually laugh, to see the baby steps the researchers are taking and the incredible CYA sidestepping going on. What do you think?
The article goes on to show an easy way to see if the Moon is really influencing hurricanes. That would be to look at the hurricane data from 1878-1950! A good idea but flawed because of the dates included.
The reality check for the information found between 1878-1950 - before computers and any kind of accurate accumulated data for those years is easy to understand. The researchers results would be fraught with error because of incomplete data from anytime before 1900. Beginning a study with data from 1900 can be chancy.
I will credit the scientists and meteorologists for providing good statistical data for modern times. One excellent location is
In fact, four years ago I performed my own study from this data gathering information on the Moon's influence on hurricane totals north or south of the equator. I wanted to know if the storm totals increased at these times of high declination degrees. I think the results are interesting but not conclusive - there is a tendency for increase but it is not consistent. Keep in mind that we do not have hundreds of years of hurricane data.
If you are interested in more detail, you can examine the spreadsheet on my website http://weathersage.com/resources/index.htm
When there, please click on Hurricanes (Excel spreadsheet).
The objective for my study was to find out if the number of hurricanes increased significantly when the Moon was in high declination degrees. The Moon can reach almost 29 degrees of declination north and south in its cycle. And...the air tides are carried further north and south over the earth when the Moon is in the higher degrees. Air tides mixing - you bet!
Astrometeorologists (I'm one of them) are far beyond baby steps in using the Moon as a weather influence. We have been developing long range forecasts for hundreds of years with the understanding that the Moon controls a good part of our weather. Ourforecasts are not for 5 or 10 days into the future but more like 5 months or 5 years. Don't be fooled when the TV weather person says something like 'and now for your long range forecast, or some say futurecast'. Yet, it's a good thing they are taking baby steps...isn't it?
Tuesday, March 3, 2009, 08:09 AM - ForecastsAfter viewing lots and lots of charts for the next few years I was inspired to write something more interesting about weather conditions. The beautiful planet Venus - she sparkles in the sky like a diamond reminding us of other worldly energy. Venus is with Mars in a very close and personal way this spring. Here is a short story about their attraction to each other. I hope you enjoy reading it.
It begins.... It's been a sublime adventure watching Venus chase Mars in the Aries ingress season charts. She spotted Mars quite some time ago in the relationship and beautiful sign Libra in early September 2008 and she may have taken notice then but continued on her way outpacing him by a sign or two until now, the mating season, up above the equator. Perhaps she is assessing her position and her desires as she begins to slow her advancement by small amounts until she stops March 6th 2009 in Mars' sign Aries, perhaps looks back and thinks about taking a much closer look.
Venus meanders along the path to the sign Pisces, perhaps mesmerized in that sign while she parks herself there for two weeks at 29 degrees. What could be going on with a Venus in Pisces for that length of time? When she comes out of her delusionary, yearning to merge period and regains her fiestiness in Aries, she begins to pursue Mars with a vigorous intent. Does Mars stand still and let himself be caught? Oh, no....Mars in Aries now in late April has more work to do, he is on a quest, a mission to heat up the place and is moving quickly. Venus chases and chases but can't quite get up to his speed. What to do...What to do. Huffing and puffing Venus regains her normal speed after the slowdown in Pisces and puts on her Nike's (tennis shoes) and gains even more strength as she enters her home arena in Taurus to lure Mars, now in the same sign. into a Taurean conjoining finally! in June at the powerful 15 degrees of fixed signs.
Is Venus pregnant with much rain for northern summertime? Does this tale have anything to do with headline news or even our own private lives? By the way, the pair are in love and remain at the same degree at the start of summer, a real supermoon time. Would anyone else care to continue the story? Carolyn, enjoying the idea of it all.

Saturday, December 20, 2008, 05:16 AM - ForecastsOn December 18, 2008, Chile experienced a 6.3 quake, a decent magnitude quake, but if one is not following earquakes, then it wouldn't mean very much. However, years ago, after reading Diana Rosenberg's awesome story on the Lisbon quake in the 1700s, I learned that many quakes have a connection to a quake on the other side of the world. The quakes would occur within a short time, perhaps a few days of each other. If push comes to shove when observing the plates moving, then it makes sense that displacement in one part of the world affects the other side of the world.
Today, December 20, 2008, Japan experienced a 6.5 quake. In Chile,
the aftershocks continued on December 19th sending 7 more tremors or shocks of 4.2 to 5.9 magnitude. That is a whole lot of shaking! It follows that Japan may have aftershocks as well.
Chile is a location that has an earthquake climate (weather term). It is a location that is noted for the highest magnitude quake, a 9.6 back in 1960 ever recorded. The tsunami quake event in Banda Aceh a few years ago may have equaled or topped it however.
The quake in Chile was predictable using long range weather techniques. In an extensive study of earthquakes since the summer of 2008, a prepared forecast included the week of December 12, 2008, a full Moon period, for the time of a more than average earthquake experience. The next period, December 19th, a quarter Moon would also carry the signature of more tremors or aftershocks.
The study is ongoing and one accurate forecast is good, but consistency is better. It would be a hoot! to be able to crack Mother Nature's code.
