Across the USA - Long Range National Forecast
Regional Summaries based on New Moon charts.
Northern New England
Early spring brings in the snow, possibly in record-setting amounts only to thaw and create flooding miseries that the 'mud' season can bring up north in New England. Mid April - mid May will see more precipitation, a sunny period then a cold spell. Mid-May eases out of the cold spell only to be into windy conditions with occasional downpours. Typical spring weather but with more oomph to it this year.
Showers and downpours could lead to flooding during the March 17th New Moon period. Mid-April to Mid-May will feature thunderstorms with great intensity and wonderful weather to enhance idyllic spring awareness. Mid-May through summer brings a problem with the winds. It is also a time for drying out and the heat to start building.
Early spring is delightful. Mid April to mid-May allows normal conditions with thunderstorms alternating with hot and dry periods. Mid-May to summer finds the humidity beginning to build but there will be a cold wind that brings a few destructive storms.
Chilly to cold days early in the season and excessive moisture. Mid April to mid-May should be a wonderful time for tourists to visit. Native will enjoy the pleasant and sometimes windy month. Mid-May to summer will find the Floridians donning sweaters as the chilly breezy may bring goosebumps.
The Upper Plains, the Dakotas, Minnesota, & Wisconsin
The area will begin with snow and other forms of precipitation-some freezing rain long with exhilarating gusts of wind. Genuinely lovely days are promised in this period also J Mid-April brings in the windy days with quite a punch! Prettier days to prevail with an early heat plume; a little early summer humidity.
Mid-May to summer will ease you out of a cloudy cool place into a heat spike that could set a record. The nodes and Uranus are angular for this area. Expect the unexpected for the normal season!
Mid Plains States, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri
Fair, windy and at times rainy for the March 17th New Moon. Mid-April to mid-May brings in the anxiety of fierce tornado activity. Be concerned and listen to all warnings. Mid-May to summer brings more unusual wind activity that will happen during the night. Following your local forecasters is a must during this period.
The wind planet, Mercury is placed in an ominous position for the New Moon chart in Dallas TX. This whole area should be on the alert for a very aggressive wind from March 17th to mid-April. A repeat of intense and threatening winds continues for the April to May period with many close calls. Mid-May through summer brings in the traditional hot weather for Texas. It's another season of record breakers. Just how hot can it get in Texas!
Seasonal winds and normal spring downpours and generally fair through mid-April. Through mid-May, there is damp weather, melting snow in extreme, tending to flood. Mid-May through summer brings the ending to the waterworks and slides into an early summertime heat to dry things out.
Arizona and New Mexico
Similar weather conditions as the Rockies with less extreme weather and a lower percentage of precipitation.
Mid-March shows a chilly and windy scenario. Mid-April will have unusual and unexpected weather events that could be difficult and destructive. Merging fronts bring in thunderstorms and lightning strikes. Tremors may be more of a problem. Mid-May to the summer season indicates a Saturn on the 1st angle, which tends to restrict life in general in the area. If not a coastal storm, then a restructuring of some kind is indicated.
Oregon, Washington and Idaho
Season indications with tendency to be brisk and breezy. Fair weather patterns to mid-April when thunderstorm activity and fluctuations in temperatures from quite warm to cold then warm through Mid-May. Finishing up through to summer indicates the melting snow process brings difficulty to the area because of the additional precipitation that could linger for weeks.
SolarMap of the USA Aries Ingress
Explore the view of the spring planet placements in another perspective - on the map of the USA. Each line represents a planet on an angle of the ingress chart and, in turn, a weather indication for the area it flows through. Notice the Saturn, Venus lines on the descendant or 7th angle/house cusp through New England. This indicates a cold and wet beginning to spring in the northeast. Uranus on the 4th angle/house cusp shocks the same area with the unstable weather patterns and reversals of weather events. Moving west you will see the Neptune 4th house line in the area of western Pennsylvania down through the Carolinas. Neptune is a good indicator for flooding if found in hard aspect to other planets. It is just that. The last of the Saturn and Neptune squares happens this spring and flooding along this Neptune line is highly probable. The Ohio Valley is most suspect for overflowing.
The Jupiter descendant line through the western states helps to bring in more fair weather and strong northerly flows of wind into the areas. Sun and Mercury on the 7th cusps through the west coast and rockies suggest warmth and wind activity.
Very windy in early April through the 17th. A more aggressive wind until May 8th. Difficult winds continue to May 23rd. The end of May has a short quiet time from the wind but there could be some erratic pockets of fierce wind. As spring ends, the winds die down until summertime begins.
Spring in Rhode Island, Connecticut and Southern Massachusetts
The season, March through June 2001, has temps that will swing from abnormally cold to extremely hot for short periods of time. In-between these abnormal periods, the weather will be moist, mild and typical of spring. This is a virtual roller coaster of weather activity, complete with summerlike T-storms and lightning, for the entire eastern half of the USA. Flash flooding more for the east coast and a major flooding in the eastern half of the USA will be a concern and an over abundance of steady rains could damage early plantings in the east.
Weekly Summaries, Rhode Island and the Northeast
Wednesday, March 24, 2001, First Quarter moon
Spring rains are featured this week. A windy thunderstorm near 27th. Clearing around the 28th to more pleasant springlike weather. Because we enter a two-week period where the warming Sun and beneficial Jupiter can bring pleasant, balmy days, we could override some of the nasty weather. An interesting weather day on the 31st could find a spike in the temp. Happy times. A rush of Spring Fever!
Technical:Gemini on 4th, Moon. Pisces on 1st, Mercury, Sun, Jupiter, Saturn late in house.
Wednesday, March 31, 2001, Full Moon - Easter Sunday April 4th
Indications are very strong for a heavy rain leading to spectacular flooding in the northeast especially because of the saturated ground from last week's rain. There is an equally strong potential for bright
Sun and rising temperatures during breaks in the rain with the Jupiter/Sun aspect on the weekend. Cloudy skies do threaten all week. One year ago, a similar combination of planets brought drenching rain for several days in early June. The storm covered the eastern 1/3rd of the nation.
Technical: Capricorn on 4th, Neptune. Libra 1st, Moon conjunct. #3 Sat/Nep square.
Thursday, April 8, 2001, Last Quarter moon
Clouds may linger and we will see some wind and chill. Moisture events range from fog to a rise in humidity. More pleasant weather may arrive by the weekend; mostly fair to the 14th.
Technical: Pisces on 4th, Mercury. Sagittarius on 1st, Pluto.
Thursday, April 15, 2001, New Moon
Mixed conditions for this week. Dry, sunny and warm temps dominate the early part of this week. Classic hot and cold fronts bring a rousing thunderstorm on the 19th. Lingering clouds and perhaps more rain to the end of the period. Colder temps feed in for about 12 days. (Sun with Saturn)

Sun and dismal Saturn are still together and are creating a pattern of stormy, wet and destructive energy most of the week. Possible clearing on the 26th. On the 27th, the northeast has a chance of being involved in the fronts that will crisscross to bring heavy rains and very unsettled conditions. A windy t-storm may close out this active quarter moon.
Technical: Sagittarius on 4th, Pluto. Virgo on 1st. Fixed grand cross.
Friday, April 30, 2001, Full Moon, First of May Day!
Saturn is still with the Sun and temperatures may be on the cool side, yet windy on a fair May Day. Note-Saturn in the sign Taurus brings new responsibilities to Taureans over the next two point five years. Unsettled conditions flip flop with cold, then warm air and fast moving air. An exciting reversal brings on the glow of springtime 7-8th. Windy on the 8th. A fast, small disturbance to welcome the quarter moon period.
Technical: Libra on 4th, Mars, Moon. Cancer on 1st.
Saturday, May 8,2001, Last Quarter moon
The fair weather fades out to let rainy, unsettled weather seep in with a low forming mid-week. A moderating effect and a warming trend moving in with higher humidity the 13-14th.
Technical: Scorpio on 4th, Pluto. Virgo on 1st.
Saturday, May 15, 2001, New Moon
Moisture moves up from the south for a period of higher humidity and steady rain, plus a downpour on the 18th looks strong with lightning. There is a strong wind/breeze about. Jupiter is perihelion and high-pressure forms later in the week, around the 20th and a stationary Uranus can give us brilliant sunshine. A t-storm ushers in the quarter moon.
Technical: Virgo on 4th. Cancer on 1st, Venus.
Saturday, May 22, 2001, First Quarter moon
Severe wind in the area. It is unusual but funnel clouds may threaten in the northeast. Tune in your local meteorologists for up-to-date info. Thunderstorm activity on the 25th. Warming trend leading to fair days. Possible T-storm on the change to the Full Moon as we prepare for a long period of extended heat and strong drying conditions. A very active week for Rhode Islanders in general. Drive with utmost caution this week.
Technical: Gemini on 4th. Aquarius on 1st. Mars opposes Jupiter.
Sunday, May 30, 2001, Full Moon
The stickies arrive in full force and the dry air indications persist - which one dominates? My guess is the tropical air winning out. Refreshing winds on the 4th, fair but warm to hot weather through the 6th. Threat of scattered thunderstorms all week and weeks to come.
Mars brings in warm weather and the westerlies while Jupiter brings in the northerly wind flow. When they clash - Boom! A neat thunderstorm. Mars and Jupiter are in position to dance with each other for a few weeks bring on the fronts!
Technical: Cancer on 4th, Venus. Aries on 1st, Jupiter, Saturn.
Sunday, June 6th, 2001, Last Quarter moon
Warm and breezy with a few clouds. High pressure brings northwest breezes and very pleasant weather. More sultry on the 9-10th that could inspire a clash of fronts for a neat thunderstorm. The 11-12th looks to revert back to more humid air.
Technical: Gemini on 4th, Sun, Mercury. Aquarius on 1st, Moon.
Sunday, June 13, 2001, New Moon
Overcast, misty or fog to begin this New Moon. Warming trend builds to a more fair weather pattern with some tropical overtones. The heat increases on the 16th and by the 19th; we will have some wind as low forms and will move in just ahead of the quarter moon bringing in a squall or storm.
Technical: Capricorn on 4th, Neptune, Uranus. Libra on 1st, Mars.
Sunday, June 20, 2001, First Quarter moon
Lingering gray sky and with Sun trying to peek out of the clouds indicates unsettled conditions for the week. Stay tuned for the summer report. J Acute storm breeders Mars & Jupiter continue their T-storm rampage and the birthchart for the summer season in Rhode Island holds many surprises.
Good Friday will bring sunshine in the East and patchy rain in the West. The rain will stay mainly in the Northwest on Saturday. Showers will affect all on Easter Sunday.
NO WEATHER WARNINGS ARE IN FORCE
There are no weather warnings in force anywhere in the United Kingdom.
Thursday 12th April 2001
There are 5 flood warnings in force in the following regions; MIDLANDS (2) ANGLIAN (3) Based on information at 1400 Thursday Details for England and Wales on the Floodline 0845 988 1188
After a cold beginning to the spring season, we will warm up to the acute heat and storm breeder planets, Mars & Jupiter. The pair will be in opposition aspect for several weeks in May and June and dominate the weather picture in the USA and around the globe. Mars and Jupiter activity tend to promote dryness and drought during extended contact and will promote the evaporation of moisture. A tension aspect to the planet Uranus indicates electrical storms and ripping northwest winds making for a rather ragged upper level airflow
For contrast, Venus and Saturn are side by side to bring us extended rain, early spring snows, gray skies and uncomfortable humidity in some locations. Neptune, a planet that can indicate the possibility of flooding is found at 74west longitude in the areas of western Pennsylvania, Ohio and south to Florida, the Bahamas and Cuba. Should both weather indications manifest from week to week, we could be looking at 'baked mud'.
A third combination of planets is Mercury (wind) Sun (warmth) and Jupiter (breezy and balmy) and condenses into the fair weather patterns in-between the storms a few weeks into the season. The wind indications are for tornadoes in selected areas of the USA and very gusty winds as noted in the regional summaries.
Meteorology even with the aid of weather satellites, computers and modern high-speed communication facilities, never will succeed in dealing intelligently with anomalies of weather beyond the actual time and progress of the phenomena.
