Extreme Winter Weather Northeast United States, Canada

Update 2018 March 15 12:06AM

Researching some of the latest forecasts, came up with this article on Bloomberg news – https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-03-14/northeastern-u-s-may-start-spring-with-yet-another-snowstorm

Northeastern U.S. May Start Spring With Yet Another Snowstorm

After reading this article, looks like it is going to agree with the second half of my prediction, which was posted March 9, more than 5 days ago.  read initial posting below this UPDATE
——————————————————————-

I am Ahgamen-Keyboa, researcher, naturalist, painter, author, historian, sometime psychic. The weather has been extreme in the Northeast U.S.A. of the past two months, from January to the present March 7, 2018 (publishing this 12:30am March 9).  This region also includes the parts of Canada adjacent, their southeastern sector, as weather movements know no nationality barriers!

If we were to compare this winter to other winters of the past few decades, it could be deemed as average and the standard. It’s going to be cold, that’s going to freeze the ground, it’s going to freeze the precipitation, there’s going to be snowfall periodically. This region is known to be cold and wet in winter, as opposed to being dry and arid.

There was one highlight of unusual occurrence from February 20-22, 2018. The temperatures went way up and way down. It brought warmth to the region more typical of June weather, practically summer-like! This was not merely in the Northeast region of the U.S.; it began in the Rocky Mountains region, especially in Colorado. These record highs were surprising for millions of people, to say the least! It will be remembered for a long time.

Then there has recently been these back to back winter storms!  Two noreasters in a row.  We are just now in the midst of the second one and clean-up is not finished.  In fact, as I am now able to share this, there was no electricity or internet to post my article on March 8. when I wanted to.  Power outages were widespread throughout the region.

Aside from the relatively normal and average year with the odd exceptions, I’ve been taking a careful look at my charts and permutations.  Basically, I have been crunching some of the pertinent facts and trying to make interpretations. I noticed something and I’m going out on a limb to state that I discovered a pattern. It is such that I can extrapolate this and make a prediction. If I am right, then I will be able to continue with the methodology. If I am wrong, then I will go back to the drawing board and try again.

It seems to me that there is a high probability of another major winter storm. Let me describe the scenario: It is possible that around March 16th to the 17th (2018) there will be another unseasonably warm event. This means that it could approach record high temperatures in the Northeast and possibly extend into southern areas of the East Coast, as well as northwards into Canada.

What will follow possibly is another weather maker. It could move into the region late on March 17th. It should be a lot of precipitation and possibly some windy turbulence. If the temperature is able to drop enough from the previous days, then it will bring quite a bit of snow.

Basically, the storm will carry through March 18th and into part of the 19th. It would be considered a very late winter weather event, considering that the Spring Equinox is only days away, the official start of Spring season. This is unusual for the region. I am predicting this more than 10 days in advance. We’re going to find out. It’s kind of exciting!

 

Can hardly wait for the pleasant days of Summer.  When all the trees and plants will be in bloom and fruits will be ready for harvest!

 

Will Hurricane Irma hit Florida and other parts of East Coast?

Ahgamen Keyboa reports:

Hurricane Irma now confirmed a looming threat! Weather prediction is a realm of uncertainty, so as we finish up Labor Day recreation and get ready for school, we may be wondering if Hurricane Harvey was enough. Apparently not, in the current upturn of tropical cyclone activity, this busy year. After more than a decade of relative silence, we are waking up to Mother Nature’s wrathful side.

We’ve enjoyed a calm for a long time, other than a few catastrophic hits, notably Hurricane Sandy in late October 2012. Many in the Northeast will remember it vividly. In the aftermath, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued its assessment report, stating that, “Sandy was a complex storm, resulting in 72 direct deaths across eight states and at least 75 indirect deaths, damages in excess of $50 billion, storm surge in excess of eight feet and up to three feet of snow in some places. At close to 1,000 miles in diameter, it was among the largest storms ever to strike the United States. The storm caused impacts in 24 states”.

Recently, we have watched in horror at the destructive power of Hurricane Harvey. We have seen the graphic images and imagine what it’s like to lose everything as the victims did. “This will be a devastating disaster, probably the worst disaster the state’s seen,” William “Brock” Long, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, told The Washington Post on Sunday. “The recovery to this event is going to last many years to be able to help Texas and the people impacted by this event achieve a new normal.”

Hurricane Harvey, news from Enternetglobal

Last week, it was the Gulf Coast, primarlily in Texas and Louisiana, feeling the vengeance of a major storm landfall via Harvey. Next week, it may be the East Coast, from Florida northwards. If the storm continues to strengthen, it will also endanger the MidAtlantic and the NorthEast. This scenario is probable for the period of mid-September.

Florida governor Rick Scott is not taking any chances. He tweeted 2:57 PM – 4 Sep 2017, “I have declared a state of emergency for every FL county to help state, federal and local governments work together as we prepare for #Irma.”

It is better to be safe than sorry, therefore the authorities in Florida are avoiding a panic. What about Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina? There is also a possible threat to Virgina and if the track would follow up the Chesapeake Bay, then the nation’s Capitol is in for disaster.

According to existing models of prediction, Hurricane Irma will continue to track on a westwards course. It gains strength over the warmer waters and does not have any detriment from wind shearing; it already has successfully passed by the ridging air systems of the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The scenario is that Irma will begin to turn northwards and may or may not skirt the coast.

If the Hurricane makes landfall early, it will be in Florida. It may cross the peninsula and jump into the Gulf coast. It may or may not gain strength again.

If it does not plow into land, it could hug the coast, at which point it retains its strength, saving it for the Carolinas or more northerly regions.

Let’s talk about the scenario of Washington, D.C. taking a direct hit. It will be the opposite of the political slogan, “Drain the swamp”; we are talking about flooding the swamp. Low-lying areas of D.C. would be inundated. The Potomac river system would be flooded. The Federal government would be shut down and all agencies would be evacuated. Washington would appear as Houston does today.

Hurricane watch warnings have now been issued for islands in the Carribean, from Puerto Rico, Hispaniola,Cuba, the Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos, Leeward Islands, and to the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. Many who have made late summer plans to vacation in paradise are now having to change their itinerary, if they are wise. Nobody wants to be stuck out on an island during one of these huge storms, if they don’t have to be.

As we approach the weekend of September 8, we are going to find out what happens in the islands off the coast of the U.S.A. After that, in the week of Sept.11-15, the East Coast may or may not have to deal with a major hurricane landfall.
