October 2004 week 1
Aches and pains and chairs that squeak, of rain they speak
West Coast -Jupiter and the node will shift and produce a southerly track for the Pacific jet stream. Expect wind and rain, in the PNW and N. CA , between the 1st and the 4th.
High Plains -The 72° jet curves from the solar point will most likely direct a winter storm into the Dakotas and then south into Colorado, between the 2nd and the 5th.
Corn Belt - Following the path of this storm eastward would bring a cold storm into the Central States and Gulf Coast, sometime after the 4th.
East Coast - With the nodal shift the storm track should steer storms into the Mid Atlantic states. Look for moderate rains to the north, and central coast after the 5th.
October 2004 week 2
With wind in the west, the weather is best
The snapshot shows the probable conditions on the 10th or 11th of October after a planetary shift over the Pacific moves the jet stream into horizontal or zonal mode.
West Coast -Moderate fronts into the PNW should replace stormy weather with warmer temperatures north and south.
High Plains - Warmer with fronts to the north with intermittent, occasional rains.
Corn Belt - Warmer with widely scattered showers into the Central States. The storm track should be farther north this week compared to last week.
East Coast - Warmer with occasional weak fronts to the north.
October 2004 week 3
When God wills, it rains with any wind
The snapshot shows the probable conditions on the 18th or 19th after a shift in patterns over the Pacific Northwest pushes a high up into British Columbia.
West Coast - The solar eclipse on the 14th should shift the eclipse grid bringing the 45° jet curve from the solar point (45°S) closer to the East Coast. This will be a significant element this winter. Look for high-pressure to push a ridge up into the Alaska area. This will most likely drop the storm jet to the south on the West Coast bringing fronts into PNW and N. CA from the 18th to 20th.
High Plains - High-pressure the node and low-pressure from Jupiter should alternate across the Great Basin. Look for seasonal temperatures with moderate fronts digging down the West Coast from the 19th to 22nd.
Corn Belt - Expect moderate temperatures and unsettled weather to the west and cooler temperatures and fronts to the eastern part of the Corn Belt from the 20th to 23rd.
East Coast - Watch for cool temperatures with possible moderate fronts late in the week as a blocking pattern over Greenland makes an early appearance in the Maritimes.
October 2004 week 4
The sharper the blast, the sooner its past
The snapshot shows the probable chart for the 25th and 26th after a planetary shift of Jupiter strengthens the high over the Pacific Northwest and pushes a block up higher into BC.
West Coast- Look for a strong ridge over the Great Basin from a combination of Jupiter and the lunar node. This should raise temperatures on the West Coast and provide the PNW with some intermittent fronts.
High Plains- Expect clear skies and cooler temperatures at night but warming significantly in the daytime, north and south.
Corn Belt- Strong Midwest mixing of cold and warm from the 25th to 29th. Look for some squalls, near Great Lakes at the end of the month.
East Coast- Look for early squalls and possible snow from the Great Lakes to New England. The Mid Atlantic States look to be unseasonably cold, with scattered snow to the north, and cold temperatures dropping into the southeast.
