  1. From uk.sci.weather/sci.geo.earthquakes:I don't know if things are going to get back to normal or if there has been a seasonal change there. But take a look at this run over the next 150 hours: > http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/charts/viewer/index.shtml?type=mslp-p… First off, concentrate on the precipitation out of Africa and see where it goes, straight into the continent and stays there. Next time around, watch a confluence from South America join it. The charts finish before any conclusions can be drawn. It looks like it could get interesting though. It might even supply a crib into the way that meteorological computer programmes might be bent to include seismic disturbances.

  2. The next roll of the dice for powerful quakes according to the BOM Antarctic chart looks like the weekend. Take a look at the three dark regions on Saturday: http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/charts/viewer/index.shtml?type=mslp-p… It looks like 2 more Magnitude 6s but the Met Office is indicating nothing of the osort. So it will probably be something else. More tornadoes in the USA? I have no idea. There is actually a boat anchor heading for the Baltic on Thursday. We are more than due for a theatric phreatic but I really shouldn't say.

  3. 17th of you know what you know when. 6.8 M. @ 07:13. EASTERN NEW GUINEA REG, PAPUA NEW GUINEA 6.7 M. @ 03:50. OFFSHORE VALPARAISO, CHILE

  4. A low on the southern tip of Greenland sending earthquake signals out into the Atlantic midnight 16th, turns into a deep Low over Ireland midnight on the 18th, dispersing over Britain by noon. Dense Lows deepen off Antarctica (30 and 140 East) 06:00 UTC today deepen and by 05:00 on the 17th disperse. That's got to be worth a couple of sixes. Unless they have already happened: 6.2 2012/04/15 05:57:39 OFF THE WEST COAST OF NORTHERN SUMATRA 5.0 2012/04/14 23:49:25 WEST CHILE RISE 6.5 2012/04/14 22:05:26 VANUATU 5.5 2012/04/14 20:53:55 SOUTH SANDWICH ISLANDS REGION 5.9 2012/04/14 19:26:42 SUNDA STRAIT, INDONESIA 5.3 2012/04/14 15:21:55 OFF THE WEST COAST OF NORTHERN SUMATRA 5.6 2012/04/14 15:13:11 KURIL ISLANDS 5.1 2012/04/14 12:18:27 OFF THE WEST COAST OF NORTHERN SUMATRA 6.2 2012/04/14 10:56:19 DRAKE PASSAGE Maye a seven then? I suppose it all depends on how certain the scientists are over the next few forecasts.

  5. It disappears by Monday but take a look at how the Polar Low swells out into the Pacific to 40 S. That happened last week, south of Australia, about when the two super-quakes struck. It's too far off to take it all that seriously but you'd have to be a fool to ignore it.

Due any time in the next few hours some distance from Indonesia I presume as it is a 1/3 of the way around the continent. > It disappears by Monday but take a look at how the Polar Low > swells out into the Pacific to 40 S. It is the end of the spell today but the North Atlantic becomes the picture of last week with a patchy incoherence reminiscent of that large quake series. The system off the Peninsula breeds a few more before the next spell ends. Look out for early Monday about 5pm UT. Then a smaller event some 24 hours later. followed by a lage one again (though it could be a triple quake of smaller magnitudes) over by Wednesday evening. Maybe a 5M. again on Thursday morning and then it gets interesting Friday. Maybe the system will disperse over the Peninsula? The spell doesn't end until the 29th though and Friday is only the 26th. Meanwhile, Half a continent away, there is another large system brewing towards the end of the chart run.

Well, it was certainly some distance from Indonesia. It was some other things too but you'll have to ask god about that. > > It disappears by Monday but take a look at how the Polar Low > > swells out into the Pacific to 40 S. > It is the end of the spell today but the North Atlantic becomes the > picture of last week with a patchy incoherence reminiscent of that > large quake series. > The system off the Peninsula breeds a few more before the next spell > ends. This may offer us an insight about which wave was which. My guess is that the more extraordinary one was the the system rubbing up against the Antarctic Peninsula.1. It's on the right longitude and 2. It behaves so differently. Pity I got banned from the Storm Watch empire.> Look out for early Monday about 5pm UT.

What happens with tornado cells is that they sweep up from the South West and run North East diurnally over a three day period so it might pay to look more closely at the way the Lows off Antarctica are forecast to behave. I only gave a rough estimate, ignoring precipitation and the behaviour of the anticyclones. Not guessing what was happening. (There was no signal I could see in ther North Atlantic.) > Meanwhile, Hlaf a continent away, there is another large system > brewing towards the end of the chart run. There are no fronts in the charts I was looking at but the Australian site I got them from does produce a set with charts. Unfortunately it is in two separate charts. I have no idea why. But they are stored online as archives here: http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/charts/indian_ocean.shtml http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/charts/pacific_ocean.shtml I wish I could hear what sounds they make.
