Summer’s Over, No Autumn, But Snow in October in Sight

2014-2015-winter-4    Weather prognosticators seem to agree:  Winter 2014-15 for most of the country will be colder and more snowy than normal. Some even predict the snowy season will start as early as mid-October.  So time to prepare!

Andrew of the Weather Center, who reports to this blog daily, predicts:  “The potential for a wintry storm in the October 10-15 period is being monitored, as well as its impacts on the new Lezak Recurring Cycle”––i.e. continuing for weeks, etc.

In one graphic he sees:  “ . . . a storm system pushing north through the Midwest . . . dropping impressive rains over Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and parts of Michigan. However, the 850mb temps appear to be near to just below freezing over central Michigan, where we see a rather sharp cutoff in the precipitation shield.

“The 850mb level, located about 5,000 feet off the ground, being below freezing can indicate snow . . . The temperature profiles for the atmosphere in general . . . where snow appears the most “likely” to occur . . . the backside of this storm could drag down some cold air, which might allow for some flakes to fly in parts of the North/Central US.”

In ‘Chicago Winter Forecast Could Be Wild In 2014-15’, John Dodge warns:  “Meteorologists don’t take much stock in predictions from the Old Farmer’s Almanac, which is calling for a frigid winter season, but there are more scientific signs that Chicago would see a wild one in 2014-15.

“The 2013-14 winter went down as one of the worst in Chicago’s history, both in terms of the amount of snow and wicked cold.”  Like most T.V. broadcasters, he doesn’t admit global warming contributes to such weather, but cites warmer temperatures from El Nino, which is, in effect, the same thing.
Moreover, Dodge reminds his audience of last winter’s term ‘Polar Vortex.’

As he says, ‘professional weathermen’ don’t ‘believe’ in Farmer’s Almanac.  But that tried and true old reliable book says the same thing in its 2015 edition:  “ . . . the winter of 2014–15 will see below-normal temperatures for about three-quarters of the nation. A large zone of very cold temperatures will be found from east of the Continental Divide east to the Appalachians.

“The most frigid temperatures will be found from the Northern Plains into the Great Lakes. The coldest outbreak of the FlowSnowboarding-Mammoth-Dump-Winter-2015-15season will come during the final week of January into the beginning of February, when frigid arctic air drops temperatures across the Northern Plains to perhaps 40 below zero. As the frigid air blows across the Great Lakes, snow showers and squalls will drop heavy amounts of snow to the lee of the Lakes.

“No region will see prolonged spells of above-normal temperatures . . .
Over the eastern third of the country, we are expecting an active storm track with a number of storms delivering copious amounts of snow and rain. . . . The Central and Southern Plains are expected to receive above-average precipitation.”

So remember the drills for house, car and clothing, as well as what Apostle Paul begs:  “Do thy diligence to come before winter . . . (2 Timothy 4: 21),” i.e. prepare each soul for salvation through The LORD Jesus Christ as well.

Of course, strong Christians, like David’s warriors, can win great battles this winter: “ . . . he went down also and slew a lion in the midst of a pit in time of snow (2 Samuel 23: 20).” Now that’s a verse for plus-sized Christian sweatshirts!
