Saturday, September 27, 2008, 11:58 AMThe local newspaper, The Providence Journal, has a front page headline that reads: Region on alert for Tropical Storm Kyle 01:00 AM EDT on Saturday, September 27, 2008
Even at noon time on this same day, the meteorologists could not determine where Kyle was going to make landfall later in the evening. I think that is not a good enough forecast for those who are published and on the air daily and for what the government spends with our tax money. What do you think?/
You might ask "who can do better?" and it would be a good question. The fact of the matter is that there are long range weather forecasters who provide good information on a regular basis, a feat that is not possible with the so called 'scientific methods'. This entry is a good introduction to what kind of weather can be forecast.
For well over hundreds of years, astrometeorology provided weather information using the complete sky and the system of astrological aspects, planet positions and astronomical understanding. Oh, you might say, I didn't know that! What else might you not know...
It is interesting that the headline from today's newspaper was already published on my website,http://www.weathersage.com/ where you will then click to Seasonal Forecasts then to the Fall 2008 information. Look for the week of September 22-28th to find the following forecast:
Monday, September 22 - 28, 2008 Quarter Moon
Crash and bang, the fall season opens with moderate temperatures and fair weather that may change to a storm watch. The humidity builds then heavy rain and very windy conditions may be out to sea but still affecting our coast. A hurricane watch is not out of the question.
Not only is the storm (Kyle) in my local forecast, the storm was identified in my 2008 Hurricane Report which states that there would be no hurricane in Florida this week, one of the most potent weeks in the six month season, but both the coastal storm that arrived here in RI yesterday, Sept. 26 and tropical storm Kyle were described in the report. Let me add that the 2008 Hurricane Report was written last May, 2008. Now that's long range weather forecasting!
Friday, July 18, 2008, 09:12 AM - TechniquesEarly this year, 2008, there was a focus on producing the Long Range Weather Forecasting Course that would include information based on my 15 years of working in this field.
The individual lessons were completed, the charts and images checked and rechecked and the CDs became a reality thanks to many who supported this effort.
The CDs are now being sold through a retailer, www.alabe.com (Astrolabe, Inc.) after being launched at the greatest conference ever, UAC, in Denver, CO, May 2008.
If you would like to see a list of the lessons, I have them on a page at www.weathersage.com, with a link to Astrolabe.
The CDs are sold in a DVD type album and can be purchased singly or in a set for a reduced price. Part 2 is the advanced lessons for those weather people who know the basic lessons of long range forecasting. I've included all the techniques that I use to achieve a seasonal report and also the information on how to develop a one-day forecast.
Some of the other details in the course are the individual lessons. Each lesson section is no longer than 8 minutes long, but one topic may have 3 parts to it. All the charts and lists are viewed while listening to the audio on your computer and each one can be printed as well.
The CD's were a hit at the conference bookstore, Astrology Et Al out of Seattle Washington. Because weather is a specialty course, everyone was surprised at the amount that was sold.
Perhaps because I have had a web presence since the year 2000 and also have an email list (email@example.com) and that I have extensively advertised the 6 month Hurricane Report, more astrologers have become aware of the value of long range weather forecasting.
Another reason may be from giving my weather talk at the previous UAC conference in Florida in 2002 and all the other speaking engagements here and in Europe. It has been a wonderful experience to see how well weather forecasting has progressed over the years and I am very grateful to those who also work with weather and those who are thinking of including the study to their list of achievements.
Part one of the weather course is easy enough to understand and work with even while listening to the CD. I've had enough feedback that lets me know that beginners are having so much success.
The first talk at the UAC conference was on the basic course information. The class was full and was I ever surprised at how many knew me from the weather list and many places where I've lectured. I must say that I was feeling very fulfilled at the success of the study and for my diligence in keeping with it all these years. Thank you to all who may be reading.
If you would like to join the weather list, just drop me an email and I will subscribe you. Best wishes, Carolyn
Friday, June 20, 2008, 03:55 AMHello friends and weather watchers,
At the beginning of the season, June 1st, the Weather Channel focuses on their presentation for the season. Last year, 2007, the presentation began with calling themselves the 'Hurricane Authorities'. Well-deserved criticism affected the show so much that this year they had to explain what they 'really' meant, that they were not saying that every storm that Dr. Gray and his team comes up with was a sure thing but that the list of storms was only an indication of what the season may bring forth.
This season, their new mantra is 'don't be scared, be prepared', a much more realistic approach to community service.
From my point of view, as an astrometeorologist, I am retaining the title that I give to my work and the work of my colleagues that is: 'Home of the Long Range Hurricane Authorities'. As a group, several of us have had success in forecasting hurricanes, some have been pinpointed to the location - in advance of the actual storm.
Last season I prepared a multi page hurricane report that can be seen, with the results, at the website.
This year, many wrote to me looking for another hurricane report. I had started to develop the 2008 forecast but had to attend a major conference in Denver, CO to deliver two lectures on Long Range Forecasting and to launch my latest release of the Long Range Weather Forecasting Course on multi-media CDs. More about that later.
The 2008 2nd annual hurricane report was finished and ready to mail in the first week of June. I found that about 20 storms would form in the six month period. The report identifies where the storms should develop in the areas of the African coast (Cape Verde Islands area), the Atlantic, Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. If you would like to be prepared with advance knowledge of which weeks are the most potent, you may find the details at the website at the related link.

Monday, March 24, 2008, 12:26 AMWhere oh where has the day gone? Computers are supposed to make life easy with all they can do for us. However, there is so much new information available for free that it takes my breath away. I was once an avid reader of real books but that activity seems to be a luxury since time is so scarce. Other activities fall by the wayside all too often. But...here is what has been taking my time.
Since the first of the year, I've been working on a project that is unique and it is based on my experience in long range weather forecasting. As you might already know, I offer the only original long range weather forecasting course. Many students took the course when it was on-line back in 1998 (those pioneering days of the internet) then others purchased the course materials since 2003. These are students from every continent around the world.
Now - the weather course is soon to be available on two multi-media CDs. I hope to have sales for each CD individually since many students around the globe may not need the first CD which is The Basics. The second CD contains instruction Beyond the Basics that I have learned and taught over 15 years in weather. Topics include steps to creating a full season forecast and the prize - how to develop a one day forecast. The course is a major offering for the 21st century. With many burgeoning astrometeorologists, perhaps the other forecasters we see on TV every day might get the message that improved weather forecasting is available.
Tuesday, January 15, 2008, 11:53 AM - MusingsI want to know - don't you? Why else become an astrologer? The art and science of prediction or forecasting can be further developed at the upcoming UAC conference in Denver, CO, May 2008. What could be more tempting than to talk astrology day and night for almost 5 days? Feast your eyes on the list of speakers and topics at this place: http://www.uacastrology.com/
On the speakers page, look up my name, Carolyn Egan, and you will see that I will talk on weather forecasting on Friday afternoon. Let me know if you are going to the conference. Even if you are not planning to attend (though I promise you will be drooling if you read the list of topics), you can buy the cds of the two talks or the cd of the original course that will be for sale at that time.
The original course is designed to be KISS (keep it simple s.....) but you can always check out the reading list on the weather website and hack away. If you want to be able to predict, then learning weather is the way to get your foundation. Nothing else is more immediate and impacting than weather.
