Boy! That was unexpected too.

The charts from Australia become acneyed in this run:

Yes, I know we don’t spell acne-ed that way but I was not spelling acne-ed.

What I believe to be happening to cause this causes a generally useless state of affairs with the NA-EFS chart too:

2014123000_360 2014123000_336 2014123000_312 2014123000_288 2014123000_264 2014123000_240 2014123000_216 2014123000_192 2014123000_168 2014123000_144 2014123000_120 2014123000_096 2014123000_072 2014123000_048 2014123000_024

Sorry about the why that these are displayed. Generally the high colour charts are the farthest off and thus last to appear on the web. There is a problem with my OS I don’t know how to fix, nor want to bother with curing.

What you are looking at in the last two charts are the first two forecasts. You can see a large complex Low in the region of the Great Lakes.  (Isn’t Great Lakes a typically American name for geography? Bloody yanks think they own the whole world. You own just a large part of it, anybody can do that -even the bloody English did that; Damnit!) This is both a relation of tornadoes and a precursor to volcanic activity Popocatépetl not withstanding.

The North Atlantic looks more or less as it has looked for the last few days:

21237519 21233819 21233727 21233594 21233199 21232804 21232763 21230873

I am not sure what order these are in, the best thing for me to do is for you to download them yourself if they upset you that much, you lazy sod!

Now you have made me forget what else I was going to say. Good job this is my website so that I can come back and edit it when I remember.

What I also forgot was that the following make the butterflies normally seen in singularities look monochromatic. Here is a “dual” (think Rorschach inkblots) an no I don’t know what a dual is some sort of a toroidal spiral perhaps?

What I do know about the above is that the stuff on the western side of the Pacific is going the wrong way. Also the North Atlantic has a tornadic front signal in it that is not going to go through a pair of anticyclones (about which I have written a few times, if not extensively.) I may be inveigled to describe the activity again -if only because I like the word inveigled. But for now, I am going to bed (which is where I do my best work, despite what the bible cautions on that.)

Boy! That was not expected!!

I am currently sitting back, finger up backside awaiting a large magnitude earthquake. For that to occur all (or most) tropical storms must cease (depending on magnitude). The alternative is a volcanic eruption, for which at least 3 storms (one of which needs to be at least Cat 3) have to oblige.

So having nothing better to do I began perusing the NA-EFS and the BoM (as you do.) Not find anything I liked particularly in either place I fell on the Met Office’s North Atlantic wondering at the shape of things to come. (As I do.)

All things considered things looked inexplicably off (or odd at least.)

Then we had some activity or lack thereof in the SED earthquake lists. A period of a substantial fraction of a day without a medium (5.5M or larger) earthquake indicates a tropical storm developing. (Or so I thought.)

I noticed therefore when a magnitude 5.6 struck And shortly after a tropical storm occurred. (Kate.)

Then there were no more medium sized quakes and it occurred to me out of nowhere and for no particular reason: I wonder if more storms are due. And then we had another 5.6. (Aha! methinks.)

Along came Jangmi. So I posted about it. And then I noticed the run was still in flow. What if we have another 5.6? So I posted about that. And we had another 5.6M. And get this they were all in the same place. It’s hard to describe where it is but if you can imagine where the Weddel Sea is, it’s north of that on this map. (I have just had a good idea:)


You should know by now how to get the larger image by clicking on t so I won’t mention it.

Here is the same thing in text:

South Sandwich Islands region – Magnitude: 5.6

(Memories play tricks on old farts in incredibly short time periods.)

But never mind you have just been party to me discovering something new and sharing it with people before having any time to consider the implications. In order to bean your curds, I won’t tell you want it is. If you are a budding thaumaturge, you will quickly realise what it is. (Double: Boy! That was not expected!!)

I am placing a long list of charts from 30 December 2014 on the next thread. These are today’s charts and fill the bill for the previous stuff too if you have not been collecting your own. I can supply them copyright to their original source but for educational purposes free to good homes.

I can see clearly now the rain has gone

Did I ever mention that you can forecast medium and large medium sized earthquakes from the NA-EFS?
I believe I have but the memory is slipping fast. I presume I have said the same about the North Atlantic. There is a good picture up at the moment:

2014/12/20         09:29:58         37.40         141.55         36.9         Mb         5.9         NEI         manual         Near east coast of easter
2014/12/20         09:26:59         37.38         141.74         50.0         Mwp         6.2         INGV         manual         Near east coast of easter.

I think this is eastern somewhere or other not Easter Island. I suppose I should look but that would be pointless research. I’ll leave that sort of thing to science. What is interesting is their appearances on the North Atlantic chart. Not mice, this stuff. Jagged edges and straight curves. Apparently going nowhere but of course they are harmonics, so don’t come and go as they please. And you must see where that leads.

Through a glass, dimly at present but soon closer acquainted no doubt. I don’t know what they will have to invent before any scientists get the message but things should be fairly clear to most of us by now. Some people want it to be some sort of magnetometer. I think that door is always going to be closed.

But one never knows does one?

1. Earthquakes always centre at the end of a front.

2. These dual quakes always have the same signature: Two parallel fronts. And the latter can only be so and so close together. Obviously they are conjoined somewhere.

How on earth do they manage that?

Parallel fronts meet up all the time. Look at occlusions. Imagine an occluded front as a whip. Sooner or later the end of the whip is going to crack. Usually it’s thunder but sometimes the report is subterranean. Or did you imagine that Rossby waves only occur at high altitude?

Ah well, that’s enough lecturing from me for the time being. I’ll be along later to fill in the blanks with stolen copyright pictures. Just imagine I am Sony and have a perfect right to publish them granted me by the Attorney General of Mississippi or somewhere.

I wonder if I can get weather charts from North Korea?

British ones?

That would be cool.
