This spell runs from the 11th to the 18th of January (2009) according to the times of the lunar phases given by Fred Espenak of NASA: http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/phase/phases2001.html.
In some places the tidal values imparted by the moon amounts to something like 30 or so deviations from a simple centripetal force or reaction. In others it is over 50. If the tidal representations presented to the general public by most physics text books were anywhere near correct there would only be 1.
These corrections are called algorithms. An algorithm is a simple mathematical procedure (made up of several complex ones) that adds, subtracts, multiplies and or divides the sum of all parts one after the other.
What you are never told is that there are references in those parts that depend on the right choice of variables that are objective. (Which amounts to the phrase: "Let the reader use discernment.") Things like the notion of time can't be black and white the way we look at a clock.
If the astronomer is setting the clock from the position of the earth, the position of the clock can not be used to set the earth, can it?
I am a black and white man.
I only see what I want to see and only believe what I want to believe. I do wish I was normal. If I was normal, I could just let other people sort these things out. And forget about them.
But having this "gift"; this illness, I can't leave this stuff alone. It is compulsive. An addiction.
No more apologies and no further explanations about anything. If I am right I am right; if wrong, desert me.
The time of this phase produces in Britain, thundery weather. Markedly so if it is nearer three o'clock. It falls into instability on the half hour. And looking at the Atlantic chart, that idea is spot on at the moment.
What happens generally in these times (03:00; 09:00; 15:00 and 21:00) is that flash flooding tends to occur. This is because the clouds build up to very high columns between marked frontal weather. The clouds are the picture book thunderclouds. With the phase being 3:30 not 3:00, the thunder heads won't form so markedly.
But the precipitation might. It's bright weather from all the refraction from -and reflection off, the clouds. Completely different from the cold overcast we have been seeing lately. The complete opposite in fact.
Thus the differences in the geometrically similar phases separated by 3 hourly divisions.

… Unseasonably warm and dry weather over the interior of northern California continues into next week…
Very strong high pressure will dominate the weather over the interior of northern California and will continue the unseasonably warm and dry weather conditions over the area through the middle of the week.
High temperatures are expected to reach into the 60s to mid 70s in parts of the central valley and surrounding foothills… and into the 40s to low 60s in the mountains for much of the week ahead.
These temperatures may possibly be warm enough to approach or establish new record high temperatures at some locations.
It will not be unusual for foothill locations to be warmer than the central valley locations for the next couple of days due to a strong temperature inversion where temperatures are warming with height. In this weather pattern the air temperature is actually warming with height up to around 4000 feet and then begins to cool.
Northerly winds will blow at times and limit the areal coverage of fog in the central valley.
The strong ridge of high pressure has deflected the jet stream and the storm track well northward into the Pacific north-west. Thus dry weather will continue over northern California despite this month normally being the wettest month of the year.
The list below includes the record high temperatures for the week ahead at various locations.

I don't know if I can post the right chart. I don't think Opera offers a sparkling tool for that particular requirement. But the Canadian Northern Hemisphere charts have been showing a remarkable Low reaching up from the Atlantic to the North Pole.
In the last couple of phase, if I remember correctly, it was the Highs that dominated the pole. You an find the complete list of them from the fifth to the 13th (so far) in the picture album of the same name.
Here we go:
