Weather Predictions for 2017-2018 winter

Do you have a winter forecast for the US for 2017-18? A.K.

First and foremost, you’ll always find me writing that the meteorologists/scientists who are involved with predicting weather, are valid in their research, understanding, and predictions.  This is true for the short term – one season, as well as the long term – decades ahead.  The science is valid and worthy of serious attention and response with regard to Climate Change, Global Warming or whatever any of us calls it.  When examining these statements against any who oppose them, look more at the hearts of the individuals, and what anyone’s hearts cause to come out of one’s own mouth.  Weigh that which is within one’s heart and look for this one’s agenda and motivation.

***

The US has a variety of weather areas and each one will be somewhat different.  I’ll add also that the weather is like a stairway, each level is dependent on the previous level.  Each “stairstep” builds itself off the previous “stairstep”.

The Southwest: last year was warmer than average.  This year is going to continue this pattern.  Dec and January will be comparable to last years, with only slightly colder temperature.  February will see the 2 middle weeks being slightly colder than last year, but warmer than would be called “average”.

The Southeast:  I see a dryer winter for the S.E. for all 3 months.  I also see higher temperatures than would be considered winter temperatures.  This is for the 1st 2 months, then some colder weather in February, than in the Dec and Jan months.

The Northeast:  There’s no escaping the cold weather in the N.E. I see frozen temperatures – solid frozen.  I see an average amount of snow.  While Dec will come in weak, January will be windy and cold.  February will be frozen cold, but warmer temperatures will come in earlier in March than years past.

Midwest:  The M.W. is going to get hit with cold wind.  Lots of snow will cover the plains regions.  This is getting to be a new normal winter for this region.  In future years, there will be very few winters that are not like this.  Except for a slightly warmer 2018-2019 winter, all other winters for this decade will be COLD for this region.  Absolutely this will affect crop growth.

New England area:  December is when winter usually starts, but all meteorological predictions for November are already in and they predict cold in the Autumn month of November, also.  December will be much colder than November.  January will be a full-blown winter weather for the region.  February will be disastrous with serious winter weather related problems.  I see ice, wind and water problems.

Western US:  For the most  part, this region will not strongly experience serious winter weather.  January will be slightly colder, but still not a hazardous situation.    February will be slightly colder, but again, not serious and more closer to average.

Pacific Northwest:  This region will experience what could be called an average winter.  It will be slightly colder this year than last year, though in all 3 months.  However, Spring will come in earlier for this regions – close to the end of February.

Western Central states:  (Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and surrounding areas) Again, meteorologists have mentioned cold fronts coming in November, and I would add this will build in December.  There will be MUCH snow in the regions – for those who ski.  The cold fronts coming through will cause temperatures to dip into icy temperatures.  Much of the snow will turn to ice as the winter continues into January and the 1st 3 weeks of February.  Again, I’m seeing an earlier than normal spring with regard to temperatures.  The last week of Feb. will see temperatures rise, but there will be some late cold fronts in April and one in May, though not as bad as if it were Jan or Feb.

There will be a few anomalies this winter.
New Mexico will have several weeks of arctic temperatures in mid-January.
Eastern California will experience some warmer than average temperatures in the High Sierras overall.  The winter temperatures will hinder the fires, but not stop them completely.  A remnant of one fire believed to be burned out, will start up again in late November in the lower Sierras south of Yosemite, north of Kings Canyon Nat. Forest.
Tennessee will experience a pocket of warm weather with the Sun breaking through the clouds, in the midst of a cold front that would be happening all around them. It won’t last long.  (1st half of January)
Any other “anomalies” are so insignificant and small that they could be considered normal, and so I won’t bother with them here.

I’m ready for questions.

Texas floods

Living in the Texas Hill Country, I’ve been right in the middle of the current flooding that has happened.  I write about a lot of it on Facebook, so look up my name on Facebook.  I hope you can reach it.

Still, I’m seeing this as a small portion of what is still possible in August.  With each small event happening worldwide, I see the energy of August’s event slightly diminishing.  Is it really possible that August’s event can be so devastating and destructive that we need “pressure release” events to help us?  and the August event possibly being even up to 10 times worse than what we’ve seen anywhere else so far?

I do believe it’s possible.  While I’m seeing portions of the energy set to manifest in August be diminished by events such as this flooding, I’m not seeing August’s event diminishing much.  This is an indicator of that level of “destructive” energy yet coming in to manifest.

June, the 1st month of signs, begins tomorrow.  I do feel the flooding in Oklahoma and Texas are connected to the August event, but not via the Earth – only as a “conduit” to allow energy seeking manifestation to find an avenue to manifest.   If we have earthquakes or rumblings deep within the Earth in the next two to three weeks, consider these to be the first signs.

There is a toast that goes, “May you live in interesting times.”  I think that is happening.

Psychic Predictions for 2015

First of all, in the category listings entitled “Predictions” on the right side of this webpage is a listing for “2015”.  These are articles I’ve already written which include that which I see psychically ahead for the year 2015.  So, there’s more information than what I’ll add here.

Second, there is no more need for a password.  The article,  More of the 2nd of 3 Events: A Call to Prayer, is now open for public viewing.

Third, I don’t profess, in any way, to see everything that will happen.  I see what I look for in order to see.  If I don’t look for it, I don’t see it.

Let’s get going…

Weather:  As I’ve written before, the winter of 2015, January & February, now, will be a lot milder…. except for the areas around the Great Lakes, and in the New England states on up through Maine.  These are going to be cold winters again.  As I write this, there is a bad cold winter coming for Christmas for the Great Lake and New England areas and they’re going to have more on through to mid-March/end of March .

Meanwhile, the rest of the country as a whole will have uncharacteristically warmer weather.  Get your snow skiing in early.  Start your gardens early.   Addendum on 12-27-14: Now I’m seeing a late cold front for the Midwest and Southwest at the end of March, 2015.  If you start your gardens early, like I will be doing, be ready to deal with one last cold front at the end of March. 

The Economy:  There will be some details that will get brought forward in time, but the stock market will have a pretty decent year in 2015 and on into 2016, also.  So, the economy is doing well, according to this psychic, and the stock market is doing well enough, also.  It’s a mostly good year for investing.  We’ll have one bad area of investing, but I’m not seeing what it is, yet.  As the year progresses, I’ll keep looking to pinpoint what to watch out for.  However, on the whole, it’s a decent year for investing, so let it ride for another year.  The one area of investment that I’m seeing that will have a bad year is because of the bad things happening in the industry and the low public opinion.  So, let this be a clue to watch for.

Gas Prices:  Enjoy the lower prices while they’re here.   Of course, they’ll eventually come back up, but we can enjoy the lower prices while they’re here.  Their being low is helping people have more spending power which helps the economy.  Remember this point, because the opposite is also true.  (When the gas prices are high, spending power is reduced greatly which hurts the economy.  This has happened before, hasn’t it !)  Don’t let the low prices now fool you.  Electric cars purchased yesterday, today and tomorrow hands down will be in better position for the future’s gas prices.  These low gas prices will not last.  The game of pricing gas will bring prices back up.

The Political Scene in Washington DC.:  The best metaphor I can use for this particular collection of elected officials is – a car driving on wheels that are half round and half square.  There will be a few months of teeth gritting cooperation, and there will be months when all hell breaks loose and they go at each others throats.  Then, it will cycle through and happen again.  (BTW,  have you ever seen a car driving with square wheels?  As the talking shrunken head on the Knight Bus in “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” said, “Hang on.  It’s going to be a baumpy ride.”)  You knew that though, right?

Around the Nation:  California’s water shortage will be getting worse.  And worse.  And worse, in the years ahead.  What they need to do is plant billions of trees.  As I’ve mentioned before, removing trees creates desert drought conditions over time.  Putting them back restores a rain equilibrium.   It’s not hard to understand, if you study the science of it.  Trees act as insulation.  They greatly reduce the great fluctuation caused by the heat buildup in the soil to the atmosphere which leads to high pressure which leads to drought.

Texas water drought will not be going away and Texas’s water wars are going to get worse.  I use the word “wars” because that’s what it is and what it’s going to become even more.  This will escalate on past 2015, 2016 and 2017.  The government in Austin will wring their hands with being able to do nothing to get more water for people, while they allow for fracking to continue using greater amounts of ground water from all over Texas.

Midwest: The Midwest will see less rain than they need, but enough to continue to grow some food.  Some areas will have enough, others won’t.  In general for the area, the food production will be down, because they won’t have enough for all they could grow, but there will be able to keep most farming going.  We’ll see some prices rise on food because of lower production.  This isn’t news to anyone, but I don’t see the situation getting better.  I don’t see it getting worse yet, either, in 2015.  SIDE NOTE:  If you haven’t started growing your own vegetables, it’s time to start.  If you don’t know how, go to Youtube where you’ll find 1000’s of helpful videos that people have uploaded.

Pharmaceutical Industries or rather, the people who run the Pharmaceutical Corporations have slowly been moving in to control the medical fields, including the AMA licensing board.  They have pretty much stacked the deck on the AMA, now.  Almost all the personnel on the AMA are so far tied in to the Pharmaceutical Industries that there is very little stopping the people running the P.I. from running how medicine is practiced.  Alternative Healing Methods and Practitioners have a bull’s eye painted on them, and the rest of this decade, they’re the target of the Pharmaceutical Industry lobbies.  This I psychically see to be where things are going.  Doctors will almost be forced to prescribe drugs for conditions, or risk challenges to their licenses, even when better remedies are suggested.  I don’t see good things for the medical field.  As hard as it is to believe this, I see it psychically to be what is happening, but not easily seen by the public.

What I do see is that some practitioners will pull together to fight against some of this takeover, but they’ll need people supporting them.  If people don’t affect changes via the voting booth, I see the people running the Pharmaceutical Industries controlling the practice of medicine for decades.

For individuals, medical information will be available on the Internet, but even that will be attacked using misinformation and outright lies (yes, it’s what I see psychically, believe it or not).  Still, anyone who seeks Alternative Healing Methods and Practitioners will find them.  Just don’t forget that these people have an uphill struggle sometimes to be of service to you.  Ask them about their “battle scars” sometime – in other words – ask them what they’ve faced to practice, and what their outlook is for their future practicing.  Then ask them how one can help.

Oil Industry:  We’ll see more oil spill accidents in 2015.  I see one in Northeast Texas and one in one of the Midwest states – somewhere near the Kansas/Nebraska border.  The damage being done by oil companies and their practices in the biggest part of the Midwestern states from Kansas to North Dakota to Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin is absolutely amazingly massive.  Those states will suffer from this for this entire century.  Very, very few are aware of how massive the damage is.

Natural Disasters:  1. I see the 2nd of 3 major world disasters happening in August, of 2015.  The Japanese events of 2011 was the 1st of 3.  This one will happen off the coast of Venezuela and the impact of the force will be southward.  I go into more detail in the now unprotected article, More of the 2nd of 3 Events: A Call to Prayer, which I’ve added information to in reverse chronological order through the months I was becoming clear on the information.  The earliest dates and information are at the bottom of the article.  With this event, I see some potential impact on Florida, but not life threatening.  The worst will be a wave of up to 3-4 ft in height – but, keep alert, in case I’m wrong about the height.  There is much less danger to Florida than a hurricane would have been, because Florida is protected somewhat by other land masses in the Gulf.  The most dangerous areas are the South American north coast line and the islands in the area.  The islands northward are in harms way, although not as serious as the Venezuelan coast line, but some.  Signs for this event will happen in June and July.   I’m 98% sure of this as of this writing.  … I see it beginning deep within the Earth – I interpret that as volcano and earthquake and tsunami, all 3.  The US will be in a better position to help than so many others, but helpful response will come from all over the world.

Regardless of what I project as what will happen, stay alert to how or if it could get worse.  Watch in June and July.  Get ready.  Prepare.

2. The Madrid Fault:  In 2015, the Madrid Fault will only be slightly active.  I see the potential for some small earthquakes through the year, but mostly in the 2 and 3 range, and only one possibly in the summer, July, maybe that will get to either a high 3 or at most a 4.

3.  California Disasters: Summer forest fires, as usual.  The loss of trees just makes things worse for California.  I’m seeing potential for one large or a series of smaller earthquakes in the eastern area of Southern California.  Not Los Angeles proper, but in the eastern half of Southern California – in San Bernadino County.  If it’s not a large earthquake measuring 6.5 or thereabouts, it’s another type of disaster – like an extremely huge fire.   But, I think it’s the earthquake.  It will be felt from L.A. to the western half of Arizona.  Many, many praying can bring this down to a 4 or 5 point earthquake.  The maximum it will get is 6.7.  I think the epicenter will be just east of Barstow, along Hwy 40.

4. Sunspot Activity:  In 2015, it will be stronger than in 2014.  Those who follow this will see the summer/fall months producing some very strong sunspots.  VERY strong.

5. Hurricanes:  The 2015 hurricane season will be moderately active.  Currently, I see 3 hurricanes going up the East Coast and 3 Tropical Storms going up the East Coast.  South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia will get the brunt of the hurricanes and Tropical Storms.  I think 2 of the hurricanes will take most of their force up the coast and out to sea.  Florida will have storms, but I’m only seeing 1 Tropical Storm causing serious problems for Florida.  That one will be on the west coast of Florida.

The Gulf of Mexico will see a few hurricanes mostly small – almost just Tropical Storms, and going into Mexico and Latin America.  Texas will see one storm during the hurricane season, but not a hurricane.  I don’t think it will be formed into a Tropical Storm when it comes into the southern area of Texas – Brownsville to Corpus Christi.  It will be more like a tropical wave or depression.  It will bring rain.

Misc:  I see something “odd” washing ashore on the California and maybe, Oregon coasts (mostly California.)  If I’m accurate, this will happen in April through June, 2015.  It looks like human-source debris of some kind – it would have to be a lot to be noticeable right now, psychically.

Around the World:  I’ve focused mostly on North America because most of my readers live in N.A.  I’m willing to take a few specific questions about different areas of the Globe – the more specific the question, the more specific the answer.  I will choose only a few questions that are sent to me, but I won’t be able to answer all.

In 2015, China will take a more active role in world events.  The Pacific Rim countries – I don’t see a lot of drastic or dramatic events happening.  There will be news of the area, but nothing beyond the regular events.

The electronics industries of Asia will continue to do well and prosper in 2015.  The Japanese Auto Industry will be stable as will the Korean, and the Japanese A.I. will be more stable and better for investments.  Both will be worthy investments, though.

The Pope will be even more visible and active in 2015 than he has been so far.  He will be traveling and making many very public appearances.

South Africa – in 2015, it will still experience social “growing pains” and struggles.  But, slowly it will progress and move forward.  I see effort and struggling and slow progress.  This is a good thing.  Slow progress is more stable than other types of “progress” because more people support it over all.

India will continue to grow in the business arena.  India will be a good overseas investment area for long term investments.  It will continue to grow for many years.

Finally, from specific areas to the globe.

Global warming is real and will continue to get worse.  We’ve not seen the worst of it, yet.  I wish I could say the opposite.  There is no magic bullet or magic beans.  ET’s won’t be saving us.  Technology will help and hurt us both.  The Earth as a place to live will become worse yet.  Remember the analogy of the frog in the pot of water slowly coming to a boil.  The frog dies, because it gets used to the water getting hotter.  The frog dies, because it does nothing to change things.  We are on the road to suffering more than anyone can imagine.  I’m sorry.  The good news is that the human race doesn’t lay down and let ourselves die.  There are many that bring forth innovation and help.  Support these.

These are dire words and I’m saying them, because we will need to rely on ourselves, individually, more and more with local centralized organizing serving local people the best.   While life seems normal for some, we also know that we’ve been adjusting to the warming.  If we were to jump ahead 10 years, we would see a world we didn’t recognize.

HOWEVER, !!! there are things we can do.  We can do something about all this today – this year. Ideas are already out there.  Actions to take are in place.  Ignore those that deny this.  Ignore them.  They choose of their own free will to deny what is true, in other words- they choose not seeing – to blind themselves and to blind others.  There is no changing the hearts of those who desire blindness.  Don’t let them blind you.  Ignore their words and move yourself forward with knowledge, cooperation, effort and practice.  It is said, “Let those who are blind, stay blind.  Those who have eyes to see, let them see.”  Get your hands dirty in the soil of life.  Join others, help, seek understanding.   As we seek ways to move forward, we will find ways to move forward.

And remember, God is real, and more than our beliefs can comprehend.  God is actively involved in our lives and very much aware of every aspect of all our lives (still beyond our comprehension.)  Yet, God never forces His help where there is no open heart that seeks His help.  Instead, God does fill the open mind and open heart -that welcome Him – to overflowing.

The Amazon Rainforest and the Hurricanes up the US’ East Coast

Sometimes, psychic information supports the scientific data that is brought forth; however, sometimes it presents it in a different way.

Around 1989 or so, I gave a reading on the Amazon Rainforest.  At that time, psychically I saw that the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest – clear cutting hundreds of thousands of acres of the trees and vegetation – will contribute to a weather process that will be destructive to the United States.

As millions of acres of Rainforest are clear cut, and now, in 2014, have been cut down, the ability of the Rainforest to moderate the heat diminishes.  Trees everywhere, and especially in forests, have the ability to trap heat.  This capacity helps to keep temperatures of a forest region stable and within a moderate range.  This also means that very little heat escapes into the atmosphere from that area.

When the trees are cut en masse, like they have been in so many areas of the world – in this case – the Amazon Rainforest – there is nothing to trap the sun’s heat.  The heat then which is absorbed by the soil (land) during the day,  then escapes into the atmosphere in the night.  (This is why deserts get cold at night – nothing to stop the heat from rising into the atmosphere – leaving the air cold at ground level.)

The temperatures fluctuate in greater swings/ranges.  In addition, the increased heat stays in the atmosphere and collects.  In the case of the Amazon Rainforest, this massive volume of heated air  via the consistent production of heated air then spreads and one of the area it spreads to is over the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of South America – the birth place of hurricanes.   All hurricanes need in order to get started in the Atlantic is heat.  They’re getting that more and more in huge volumes of heated air.

Now, with a similar process happening,  plus high pressure remaining in the atmosphere in Texas, and surrounding states of the Midwest, South and Southwest, the high pressure in the atmosphere pushes across into and past the Gulf of Mexico against the hurricane preventing it from moving along the old-time paths that hurricanes took – entering the Gulf of Mexico.  The hurricanes seek the path of least resistance (low pressure) which is now up the east coast of the United States.

This is how the destruction of the Rainforest contributes to hurricanes going up the East Coast of the United States.  It is a ludicrous idea until we see it happening and eventually understand the physics of how and why.

The drought in Texas and other states has many causes, and there is systematic cutting of trees in Texas, also contributing to this – without replacing the same number that are cut down.  We have much development all through Texas, requiring large swaths to be cut down, widening of roads and highways, plus the massive cutting of cedar trees in central Texas and other areas.  Over the decades of development and the cutting of trees, what one might usually consider only a drop in the bucket, now becomes millions of drops in many, many buckets.

There are many causes to the drought in Texas, and fewer and fewer trees is helping all the other causes, also.

At the same time, a very useful helpful measure would be to plant trees en masse.  Looking at it again psychically, I see that were the people of Texas and California to plant millions of acres of trees – this would change the weather patterns considerably over the states and combat much of the other causes, plus contribute to more rain for the states.

Drought is many years in the making and built via the years and patterns previous.   We can help reverse the human contribution to droughts.  Please, don’t use the lame excuse that we can’t plant trees during a drought.  Mother Nature plants trees under all conditions regularly.

Predictions for 2014 – 2019: Weather #17

We still have extremely difficult weather hitting the U. S., but there will be an end to it over the next few weeks and months (depending on locations) as is expected.

Texas generally will start seeing warmer temperatures and the end of the freezing temps by the 3rd and 4th weeks of February.  By this time, the temperatures will slowly start climbing back up, with only one last cold spell happening after warmer spring temperatures have established themselves.

Southeast U.S. will see the last of the cold at the turn of Feb./Mar.

The Northeast will see continued deep cold weather on into April.

The North Central states will have deep cold weather through to the middle of April.

The Pacific Northwest will begin their spring temperatures mid-March.

***The Winters of the Future***

The winters of 2015 and 2016 will be much milder for the U.S., but 2017 will return with winter weather almost as extreme and bad as 2014 has been – almost.  After that, 2018 will be average to milder again.

California

California’s drought will continue through 2015 and 2016, but 2016 will see some rain.  2017 will bring more rain for California than 2016 before it enters into 2018 and 2019 which will see the return of the drought again.

The drought over the next 5 years (excluding 2017) will also see a somewhat noticeable population exodus from California moving eastward – mostly towards Colorado, New Mexico and further east, with some to Utah.

The California drought will be worse in the southern part of the state during this time.  Central California and its farming industry will struggle to get what water it can.  Southern California’s water dilemmas will worsen during 2015 and 2016, with some relief during 2017.

Winter 2014 Predictions: #6

A few more questions:

“Now what do you have to say for winter 2014?  Here in Utah is extremely hot temperatures. Should we expect a mild winter now?”  Tatiana, July 3

The higher temperatures are helping, but not enough to turn the weather around from what I see.  It’s like having a large block of ice and pouring a pot of hot water on it, the block of ice is affected, but not completely to melt the whole.  The hardest part of winter, 2014 for Utah will be in both January and February- differently for each month.  Working on your side, though is the strength of prayer in the cultures  of Utah.  This prayer will help people to cope and deal with the harder winter.  Utah will fare better than others.  The prayers of a few will save many.

“Will the Mars One project be successful?” Lisa, July 6

I see it being successful for those that are contracted to help fulfill many of the technological needs of the project.  I do not see it completing the project as currently planned.

“Do you know what the winter 2014 will bring for west Tennessee?”  Riddles, July 12

Tennessee as a whole is also going to face difficult weather.  While Tennessee is on the border of where I see the arctic fronts progressing,  I see West Tennessee facing the coldest temperatures and East Tennessee being protected somewhat from the progression – not completely because the whole of the U.S. will be affected in some way.

It is possible that one side of the state will be abnormally buried in snow and the other side with a normal amount.  The western half of the state can expect a winter where the snow is so much that people have difficulty traveling their normal routes – some paralysis of movement.  Meanwhile the eastern half of the state, while they get some snow, it will not paralyze them.   Tennessee will see their share of extremes.

“Wondering about fall and winter weather for East Texas in 2013-2014.” Betty, July 12

“I was wondering how far into Texas do you see the severe cold temperatures dipping. We live just North of Houston and it hasn’t been really bitter in quite a long time.”  Sally, July 23

Texans are going to be hit from the Panhandle to Brownsville, from El Paso to Beaumont and beyond.  Prepare for February to be one of the worst you’ve experienced here in Texas.  As January progresses, the signs will be the average temperatures in January steadily going down.  Then from Feb 1-5, the warnings will come from the meteorologists.   Houston will be greatly affected, as will all other areas of Texas including the Rio Grande Valley and it’s agricultural economy.  Only with preparation, will someone in Texas be able to say, “It wasn’t that bad…. for me.”

“Will there be a crash in the 2014-2015 time period?”  Lisa, July 15

I’m not seeing what I would consider a “crash”.  Define what you consider a “crash”, and I’ll add what I see.  Meanwhile, the food prices for summer of 2014 being most affected, and therefore going up.  (Again, growing one’s own garden is always an act of wisdom.)

“How will the 2013-2014 winter of MA be? I live on Cape Cod.” Mark, July 18

I could say that Cape Cod will be facing colder weather, but you wouldn’t notice it once it happens.   While Cape Cod does usually experience some nice days even during the winter, this next winter will only be fewer nice days.   MA has handled cold winters and will do this one, too.  The colder, northern states are built for cold weather and will take it all in stride.  What’s the difference if you have a February of 2 weeks of Zero weather vs. 3 weeks of Zero weather, or 3 weeks of temps in the teens and 20’s vs 4 weeks of temps in the teens and 20’s.  Very little difference for the northern states that have this as the norm.  The warnings are mostly meant for those who don’t know how to live with cold for long durations – like the south.  The north will say, “Yawn, we live that way all the time.”

“I plan to get married on July 19th, an outside wedding, hoping for some awesome sunny weather what to you foresee?” Stacy, August 2

Congratulations and may God bless you both with happiness and long life together.  I could tease you by saying, if you have your ceremony in the Arctic, it will be cold, and in Death Valley, it will be hot, and in Seattle, it will rain that day. . . but, I won’t do that.

By the time the summer of 2014 gets here, I see the forces affecting weather in so many regions to be back to a type of balance.  So, wherever you decide to have your outdoor wedding, you can plan for that area’s general weather to be back in place.

But, only because the pendulum is then in the process of swinging back the other direction, if you know what I mean.

However, Europe by the time July, 2014 arrives will have some extreme temperatures – mostly hot.  They’ll be suffering record breaking spells going up and down, both.  Asia, on the whole will be averaging out, as it is generally,  Australia will be having their winter in July, and will have slightly higher temperatures giving them a milder winter.  South America will experience their average weather.  And the Antarctic will be melting even more.

Another weather report

In response to another question about the Texas weather in Central and East Texas:

The temperatures in August in Central and East Texas will be like July, and continue into the 1st week of September.  But, slowly, the 2nd week of Sept., we’ll see temperatures start inching downward.  Around the 10th to the 15th of September, we’ll see real temperature change and from the 15th, we’ll have steady temperature drop with more clouds than we’ve seen this summer.  The temps will continue to become cooler as more clouds build up going through to the end of September into October.

We’ll have small amounts of sprinkling in September in some few spots in Texas, but going into October, we’ll have a gradual increase in raining.  October will actually have rain.  Those of you with rain collection systems, be ready starting in the 2nd half of September for a little, then for a lot from the October rains.

The rains will continue into November – around the 7th when I see what I think is a cold spell coming in around the 8th.  Nov. will be less rain than October with temperatures continuing to slowly creep southward on into December.  I see a milder cold December.  I think December’s rain will be spotty.

January and February will drop into the 20’s in Central Texas and into the upper teens in East Texas.  In East Texas, it can be considered a normal winter.  But, during this time, be ready for communication technology problems.  This goes for landlines and satelites both.  Consider having a backup where if one of your ways of staying connected is lost, another one can be relied on.  Satellites will have problems during this time period.
