the first chart shows a section of the GOES satellite imagery for December 12. In the image we can see a strong mid latitude jet stream from the dateline into the West Coast of the US. This enhancement of the mid latitude jet has come into bloom since the convoy of Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Venus have entered the eastern Pacific.

Here is another image of the same phenomenon. This view shows a strong enhancement of upper level winds streaming out of the dateline area. The last article in this series featured the enhancement of the mid latitude jet at the dateline. The center of the most intense area of the jet has moved to the east of the former position.

Here is a section of the 500mb level of winds on the same day.You need to resize your window in order for the map to appear. The four planets that are moving in tandem are inserted into the chart to show the close affinity between their position and the source of the anomalous jet. Historically the strongest east Pacific jet occurs when the transiting planets have breached the West Coast of the US and are moving towards the coast of Mexico. That should happen in January. This event is not over.
