Southeastern States and Storms

If you’re living in the Southeastern U.S., pay attention to the hurricane predictions made by the weather services.  The Southeastern states, including Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, and eastern Tennessee, and Virginia are going to get the brunt of the storms generated this Fall, 2016.  There will be flooding and power difficulties.  Make sure you’re going to be prepared.  The closer you are to Florida, as the crow flies, the worse it will be for you.  Flooding will be one of the worst parts of the storms.  There just won’t be enough time for the ground to absorb all the rain water before more storming happens.  The storms will then go up the eastern coastline adding rain to those areas.

I’ve been using the word “storms” because I see the most difficulty coming from what is left from the hurricanes – wind and rain – as they go inland, as well as what is generated by Atlantic hurricanes that get downgraded.  Again, I see lots of flooding.  I also see food shortages and in some areas gasoline shortages worse than just the pipeline break is causing.  So start preparing now.

Although I see most of the inland storming lessening in November, I also see a late storm in November, but it won’t be as serious as what we see in the next weeks before mid-November comes.  Either way, pay attention to the weather services, and if you have specific questions which they’re not answering, you can ask here.

Weather 2014: 12-Alabama, Georgia, Southern California

Hi, first I shall say thanks for what you do. I feel and am somewhat prepared for (lack of a better term) the unknown so my question to you is what you see for the area between Birmingham and Atlanta whether it is weather related or not. Thanks, M.

It’s going to be cold. For both Alabama and Georgia, expect below average temperatures. I don’t see a lot of snow for either state, but I do see January reaching down into the ‘teens for Alabama, but around 10 degrees warmer in Georgia than Alabama. I see the first half of February being difficult for Alabama because the temperatures – I see them reaching down into single digits if not at least close. When was the last time a place in Alabama had 10 degree weather? Georgia on the whole will be warmer than Alabama because of their proximity to the Atlantic waters. Georgia, too, though will have difficult times for the reason I’ve stated – because the south is not designed for cold – it’s designed for heat. Both states need to prepare for the disaster of roads impassable, loss of electricity in some places, mostly rural, but a little in the cities, and broken water pipes.

What do you see for Southern California This winter? Hoping for rain. R.

Southern California: expect colder weather in January, but in February, So. Cal. will not get hit with the same freezing temperatures that the rest of the country will get. The Pacific Ocean has a big effect on Southern California’s weather. This will help keep the region warmer than the rest of the nation. I think the lowest it will get will be in the 40′s.

I’m not seeing much rain for the L.A. area and most of S. Cal., during January or February. Cloudy, yes, sprinkling, yes at some times, but rain, downpours? I don’t see much, yet. I’ll keep watching.
