Unsually cold conditions in northwest accompanied by moisture laden clouds (there is a blizzard in the area now) are likely to result in more explosive weather over the central US next week.

  1. The sun has once again added
    The sun has once again added to the ionospheric turbulence with several C-class flares propelling several more batches of plasma on the solar wind detected by the GOES 13 & 15 (http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/rt_plots/kp_3d.html) shown as the global magnetic field disturbance index (Kp). Expect any normal weather disturbance to gain in intensity from the atmospheric roiling caused by these solar injections. Susan Joy Rennison spoke eloquently about the sun and the consciousness it has in the connection between it and the earth. The scientific look at the connection can be seen at the NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory (http://sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov/data/) in particular this video (http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/videogallery/index.html?collection_id=15504&media_id=84013011) of the “reconnection” of the earth’s magnetic field made after a CME completes its passage around our planet.

    You can watch the weather across the nation here http://radar.weather.gov/Conus/full_loop.php

    The storm currently crossing into Tennessee and Kentucky has strong potential for severe weather. You can see the cold air flowing down the backside of the low front heading across the top of the Great Lakes mixing into the warm wet air mass popping up over east Texas in the GOES infrared weather satellite loop here http://www.goes.noaa.gov/GSSLOOPS/ecir.html

    Whitley’s forecast made on April 2nd was accurate then as is his current posting.
