Four fold pattern of Rossby wave generation

originally posted on

The (27.32 day) rotation of the solar magnetic poles (tilted~12.5 degrees) causes a cyclic change in the polarity of the solar wind, felt at the Earth and drives the Lunar declinational movement. Which in turn drives the atmospheric declinational tides, which in effect produce, and control the Rossby wave and jet stream movement patterns.

The resultant Lunar declinational tidal effects drive most of the short term patterns in global weather changes, the 18.6 Mn year period, drives the decade length patterns of oscillation across the oceans.

One of the problems with the current weather forecast models, is the reference time frame is very narrow for initial conditions, and the past three days, a lot of times this will introduce presistance of inertia, to the medial flows, for several days, consistent with the actual flows, as the Lunar declinational atmospheric tides, make their runs across the equator from one poleward culmination to another.

Then as the tide turns and we have the severe weather bursts at declinational culmination, they get confused, or surprised, as the initial inertial effects reverse for about four days before the sweep to the other pole, that brings back the smooth flows, the models understand.

So that when the Lunar declination went to Maximum North on December 3rd, turbulence and shear introduced into the atmosphere, from the turning tide, (the models do not know about), surprised them with the usual couple of tornadoes. Now (12-13-09) that we are ~20 degrees South Lunar declination, the models have a full buffer, of five days of linear inertial, from the Moon’s trip South across the equator (12-09-09) and is slowing it’s movement.

Coming up on the Southern extent culmination, producing a secondary tidal bulge in the Northern Hemisphere, bringing us to the mid point of a 27.32 day declinational cycle (one of the four routine patterns that cycle on an 109.3 day period). This particular one (#1) that started back on Dec 3rd, has incursions of polar air masses that come down from Western Canada, through Montana and the Dakotas, to make up the Northern part of the atmospheric tidal bulge.

So I would expect to see a large invasion of cold dry air sweep almost all the way to the Gulf coast again, then the produced frontal boundary with the interesting weather, that includes change state intense precipitation. Freezing rain, where the warm over runs cold, and snow where the cold undercuts the more sluggish warm air, still moving North East by inertia alone, severe weather to form in that trailing edge of the warm moist mass, that gets swept from behind from the polar air mass that tries to follow the tidal bulge back to the equator, powering the cyclonic patterns generated by carolis forces, alone as the tide turns, and finishes out as the Moon approaches the equator again.

Expect the same type of interaction again for a primary bulge production by the passage back North, culminating on 12-30-09, pumping in a solid polar air mass very consistent with the pattern we had on 12-03-09, (the North lunar declination culmination), then (#2) the next Rossby wave / jet stream regime pattern, comes back into play with much more zonal flow, and air masses invading from the Pacific, (of the two sub types of) phase with lesser amounts of Gulf moisture entrainment in this one, more in the other #4.

The (#3) third 27.32 day pattern with polar air masses invading in from the Minnesota / Great Lakes area and sweeping out through the Eastern sea board, and mostly zonal flow out west, from 01-27-10 till 02-23-10, comes next.

The fourth 27.32 day cycle, that looks very similar to #2 but with much more moisture from the Gulf of Mexico.
usually has more hail and tornadoes associated with it than Pattern #4, and typically flows up Eastern side of tornado alley. Will be in effect from 02-23-10 through 03-22-10, and should produce the first big surge of severe tornado production, from about March 20th 2010, until about March 26 or later as the Next polar air mass cycle is coming out of western Canada, and should make for steep temperature gradients, and ion content differences.
