Friday, September 23, 2011 – The first day of fall brought extreme storms with evidence of weather augmentation to Southern California. [This was also the day NASA’s Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) was predicted to fall to earth.]
It will be mostly cloudy this morning, when showers and thunderstorms are expected. Because of the expected dry lightning, a red flag warning denoting a high risk of wildfire will be in effect from 11 this morning until 11 tonight in the Antelope Valley, the mountains of LA County and the Angeles National Forest. This afternoon should bring partly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the mid 70s at the beaches, the 90s further inland, and the 90s and low 100s in the valleys. Air quality will range from moderate to unhealthful for sensitive groups.
Iridescent Clouds, Chemtrails & Earthquakes
With mostly cloudy skies, some clouds appeared iridescent in color when they passed near the sun.
Iridescent clouds have been associated with earthquakes and there were several in the area at the time:
02:16:56 PM at epicenter – Magnitude 0.9 – 9 miles E of Julian, CA
02:23:12 PM at epicenter – Magnitude 1.7 – 5 miles SW from Pine Valley, CA
02:38:03 PM at epicenter – Magnitude 1.1 – 11 miles N of Borrego Springs, CA
02:56:45 PM at epicenter – Magnitude 1.0 – 4 miles N of Lake Henshaw, CA
03:00:22 PM at epicenter – Magnitude 1.3 – 5 miles NW of Morongo Valley, CA
04:18:00 PM at epicenter – Magnitude 2.1 – 4 mi SE of Loma Linda, CA (Riverside)
The quakes in the 2:00 hour occurred to the south of the area photographed. The earthquake at 3:00 happened in the very same area and time where these chemtrails appeared:
Aerosol spraying in this area continued as multiple planes in a short time span left trail segments around the previous chemtrails. HAARP wave lines formed nearby:
Just after 4:00, northwest of Hemet (Riverside area), two planes flying side-by-side started spraying at the same time left long parallel chemtrails behind. Dual aerosol spray planes are unusual enough but then they simultaneously curved to the left and created a hook pattern.
“Dry Lightning”, Fire & Rain
According to NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory:
Dry lightning is cloud-to-ground lightning without any rain nearby. The NOAA Storm Prediction Center routinely forecasts dry lightning because this kind is more likely to cause forest fires.
Here are some headlines reported:
SFGate: Low humidity, wind gusts prompt Calif. fire watch
The National Weather Service says wide swaths of the state are at risk for wildfires Friday evening.
Forecasters issued red flag warnings for portions of the Central Coast down to Southern California, which means that weather conditions are ripe for fires.
California’s storm systems could produce scattered dry lightning and wind gusts through Friday at 11pm, according to the National Weather Service.
CAL FIRE says it already has increased staffing to respond if a big fire breaks out.
