Wobble Sloshing


"We warned at the start of ZetaTalk, in 1995, that unpredictable weather extremes, switching about from drought to deluge, would occur and increase on a lineal basis up until the pole shift. Where this occurred steadily, it has only recently become undeniable. ZetaTalk, and only ZetaTalk, warned of these weather changes, at that early date. Our early warnings spoke to the issue of global heating from the core outward, hardly Global Warming, a surface or atmospheric issue, but caused by consternation in the core. Affected by the approach of Planet X, which was by then starting to zoom rapidly toward the inner solar system for its periodic passage, the core was churning, melting the permafrost and glaciers and riling up volcanoes. When the passage did not occur as expected in 2003 because Planet X had stalled in the inner solar system, we explained the increasing weather irregularities in the context of the global wobble that had ensued - weather wobbles where the Earth is suddenly forced under air masses, churning them. This evolved by 2005 into a looping jet stream, loops breaking away and turning like a tornado to affect the air masses underneath. Meanwhile, on Planet Earth, droughts had become more intractable and deluges positively frightening, temperature swings bringing snow in summer in the tropics and searing heat in Artic regions, with the violence of storms increasing in number and ferocity."



From the ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for February 4, 2012:


The wobble seems to have changed, as the temperature in Europe suddenly plunged after being like an early Spring, Alaska has its coldest temps ever while the US and much of Canada is having an extremely mild winter. India went from fatal cold spell to balmy again. Has the Earth changed position vs a vs Planet X to cause this? [and from another] Bitter cold records broken in Alaska - all time coldest record nearly broken, but Murphy's Law intervenes [Jan 30] Jim River, AK closed in on the all time record coldest temperature of -80°F set in 1971, which is not only the Alaska all-time record, but the record for the entire United States. Unfortunately, it seems the battery died in the weather station just at the critical moment. While the continental USA has a mild winter and has set a number of high temperature records in the last week and pundits ponder whether they will be blaming the dreaded "global warming" for those temperatures, Alaska and Canada have been suffering through some of the coldest temperatures on record during the last week.

There has been no change in the wobble pattern, the wobble has merely become more severe. Nancy noted a Figure 8 format when the Earth wobble first became noticeable, in early 2005, after Planet X moved into the inner solar system at the end of 2003. The Figure 8 shifted along to the east a bit on the globe between 2005 and 2009, (the last time Nancy took its measure) as Planet X came closer to the Earth, encountering the magnetic N Pole with a violent push earlier in the day. But the pattern of the Figure 8 remained essentially the same. So what changed recently that the weather patterns became noticeably different in late January, 2012?

The N Pole is pushed away when it comes over the horizon, when the noon Sun is centered over the Pacific. This regularly puts Alaska under colder air, with less sunlight, and thus the historically low temps there this January, 2012 as the wobble has gotten stronger. But by the time the Sun is positioned over India, the N Pole has swung during the Figure 8 so the globe tilts, and this tilt is visible in the weather maps from Asia. The tilt has forced the globe under the hot air closer to the Equator, warming the land along a discernable tilt demarcation line.

The next loop of the Figure 8 swings the globe so that the N Pole moves in the other direction, putting the globe again at a tilt but this time in the other direction. This tilt is discernable in weather maps of Europe, again along a diagonal line. Depending upon air pressure and temperature differences, the weather on either side of this diagonal line may be suddenly warm or suddenly cold. The tilt and diagonal line lingers to affect much of the US and Canada, but the Figure 8 changes at this point to be an up and down motion, pulling the geographic N Pole south so the US is experiencing a warmer than expected winter under a stronger Sun. Then the cycle repeats, with the magnetic N Pole of Earth pushed violently away again as the Sun is positioned over the Pacific.


From the ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for April 6, 2013:


Would the Zetas be able to let us know what is causing the early break-up of the Arctic Ice, the ice seems to have taken on a swirling pattern at the same time, would this be wobble related? [and from another] The ice in Canada’s western Arctic ripped open in a massive “fracturing event” this spring that spread like a wave across 1,000 kilometres of the Beaufort Sea. Huge leads of water – some more than 500 kilometres long and as much as 70 kilometres across – opened up from Alaska to Canada’s Arctic islands as the massive ice sheet cracked as it was pushed around by strong winds and currents. It took just seven days for the fractures to progress across the entire area from west to east. [and from another] A high-pressure weather system was parked over the region, producing warmer temperatures and winds that flowed in a southwesterly direction. That fueled the Beaufort Gyre, a wind-driven ocean current that flows clockwise. The gyre was the key force pulling pieces of ice west past Point Barrow, the northern nub of Alaska that protrudes into the Beaufort Sea.

The Figure 8 formed by the N Pole during the daily Earth wobble has shifted somewhat to the East, due to Planet X positioned more to the right of the Earth during its approach. This was anticipated, and well described in ZetaTalk, the Earth crowding to the left in the cup to escape the approach of Planet X, so the angle between these two planets would change slightly. This shift of the Figure 8 to the East is due to the push against the Earth’s magnetic N Pole occurring sooner each day than prior. Thus instead of occurring when the Sun is high over the Pacific, over New Zealand, it is now occurring when the Sun is high over Alaska. All the wobble points have shifted eastward accordingly.

This has brought a lingering Winter to the western US, and a changed sloshing pattern to the Arctic waters. Instead of Pacific waters being pushed through the Bering Straits into the Arctic when the polar push occurs, the wobble is swinging the Arctic to the right, and then later to the left, creating a circular motion in the waters trapped in the Arctic. Since the Earth rotates counterclockwise, the motion also takes this path. This is yet another piece of evidence that the establishment is hard pressed to explain. They are attempting to ascribe this to high pressure and wind, all of which are not new to the Arctic, but this circular early breakup of ice in the Arctic is new.

Giant hailstones 8 centimetres wide smash windscreens, roofs and windows cancelling flights as "catastrophic" storm cell hits Sydney

File photo

Insurers are bracing for a flood of claims after Sydney's "catastrophic" hailstorm yesterday, which saw many parts of the city pelted with hail up to 8 centimeters wide.
The Insurance Council of Australia (ICA) has declared the storm a catastrophe and said claims so far had been mostly about damage to motor vehicles, including smashed windscreens.
Residents have also been ringing their insurers about damage to tiled or metal roofs and flooding. ICA spokesman Campbell Fuller said the financial impact of the storms would be significant.
"It won't be known for some days or even several weeks," he said.
"Residents and businesses are prioritizing making their properties safe ... and they'll contact their insurers when they get to it."
The Bureau of Meteorology said the storms pelted a widespread area with large hailstones.
Many areas looked as though they had been blanketed by snow.
Dozens of flights at Sydney Airport are now delayed or canceled as a flow-on effect of the storm last night, and travelers have described the check-in process as "chaos".
A spokesman for the airport said there were delays at T1 (international) and T2 (domestic).
The delays at T2 are up to 60 minutes for some services and at T1, flights are running around 40 minutes behind.
The backlog of flights is largely due to the wild weather yesterday but also poor weather in Melbourne today, the spokesman said.
"If you're catching a flight out of Sydney today allow several hours because it's constipated as f**k," writer Benjamin Law tweeted.
Virgin Australia has advised passengers to allow 2.5 hours before their domestic flight as "it's incredibly busy".
Surfers at Bondi Beach had few options for shelter, and while many made a dash for the shore, some stuck it out in the water and used their boards for cover.
At Berowra, on the upper North Shore, there were reports of hail about 8 centimeters wide, while Cabramatta in the south-west and parts of Surry Hills received hail about half that size.
A State Emergency Service spokesperson said Berowra was one of the worst-hit areas, with "almost every second home" needing assistance.
"Giant hailstones, which is hail greater than 5 centimeters, are quite specifically driven in supercell thunderstorms," meteorologist Jordan Notara said.
"We do get them quite regularly over summer through NSW, but these storm cells redeveloped quite intensely over Sydney specifically."
The state's most highly populated area was right in the firing line, worsening the impact.
Mr Fuller said an "insurance catastrophe" was declared due to the extent of the damage, which was evident early in the storms.
"The declaration means insurers are prioritizing claims from the hailstorm and they're endeavoring to help customers as quickly as possible," he said.
It also means a taskforce has been set up specifically to liaise with emergency services and government bodies.
While the cost of the storms will not be known for some time, Mr Fuller said a catastrophe was declared when the damage bill was likely to be in the tens of millions of dollars or higher.

Powerful, rare tornado rips through Seattle area

Rare tornado strikes near Seattle

Tuesday, December 18, 2018, 8:47 PM - A powerful tornado tore through a Seattle-area town on Tuesday afternoon, damaging homes and vehicles along its path.

The twister touched down just before 2 p.m. local time, according to the National Weather Service (NWS), raking through the Puget Sound community of Port Orchard, about 13 miles west of Seattle.

Images of significant damage to homes and trees in the area quickly started appearing on social media as well as via local news agencies. There are no reports of any injuries at this time.

(Related: Tornado safety tips)

The NWS will send a survey team on Wednesday morning to asses the damage and classify the intensity of the storm. "Until we conduct a tornado survey tomorrow morning, we can not speculate on the strength of the tornado," the weather agency said via Twitter.

While tornadoes occur in every month of the year in the United States, they aren't particularly common in the Pacific Northwest, and especially not in December. Washington averages only 2.5 tornadoes per year. If Tuesday's tornado is rated EF-2 or higher, it would become the first 'significant' tornado (those EF-2 or higher) in Washington state since 1986, and the first significant December tornado in the state since 1969. Even more unusual: if the storm is rated EF-2 (or higher), Washington state will match Texas for the number of EF-2 storms in December -- 1. Washington state has no EF-4 or EF-5 tornadoes on record.

WATCH: Fresh snowfall in Jammu and Kashmir cripples normal life, temperature dips to minus 15 degree Celsius

Temperature in the border state of Jammu and Kashmir dipped significantly lower after the state received fresh snowfall on Monday, bringing the movement of traffic to a grinding halt in many areas of the state and severely affecting normal life.


According to news agency ANI, Rajouri town which is known as Vale of Lakes has received around 3 to 4 feet snowfall. The region, around 155 km from Srinagar, has been witnessing heavy snowfall for the last few days.

The famous Mughal Road in the district has been closed due to a heavy spell of snow. The road has been closed for the last seven days due to snowfall in Pir Panjal mountain range. As a result, the local administration on Wednesday deployed officials with heavy equipment to clear the road and restore movement of traffic.

According to the MeT office, Sunday recorded the season’s coldest night when the temperature dropped to minus 15.7 degree Celsius. In Kargil town, the temperature settled at minus 11.4 degree Celsius. In Srinagar, temperature settled at minus 4.8 degrees Celsius, while Qazigund recorded minus 5.2 degrees Celsius. The ski-resort of Gulmarg recorded minus 8.3 degrees Celsius.

Rare December tornadoes strike multiple states in central U.S.

 Residents in central Illinois assessed damage Sunday after rare December tornadoes, including one the day before that was half a mile wide, ripped roofs off homes in Taylorville, downed power lines and injured at least 20 people.

The severe weather in Illinois was part of a line of thunderstorms that raked areas of the central U.S. late Friday and into Saturday, killing one person in Missouri. The National Weather Service confirmed tornadoes in Illinois, Missouri and Oklahoma.

At least three tornadoes were also confirmed in northwest and southwest Arkansas. They largely caused property and structural damage; no injuries or fatalities were reported.

Peak months for tornadoes in much of the Midwest are April and June, according to the weather service. But at least 12 tornadoes were reported in Illinois on Saturday, including the Taylorville tornado, which has been confirmed. If the majority are confirmed, that would be the most tornadoes in Illinois in a December storm since Dec. 18-19, 1957, when there were 21.

Central Illinois tornadoes: 22 twisters reported in rare outbreak

 Central Illinois is coping with damage and injuries after a rare blitz of tornadoes Saturday, when 22 twisters were reported to the National Weather Service..."

"Illinois has an average of 47 tornadoes a year, not including December, which doesn't have an average,.."


ZetaTalk about the relationship between the earth wobble and an increase in tornadoes

We stated that tornadoes would become more frequent, more intense, and appear in areas not previously subject to tornadoes. These predictions of ours, made in the past, were based on our knowledge that the Earth wobble would intensify and become more violent. Now that the wobble is rising to meet our predictions the tornado spates and surprises are likewise on the increase. This is certainly not going to go away. The wobble will continue to worsen, and problems with tornadoes will follow. Since you are going to have to live through hurricane force winds during the hour of the pole shift, our advice would be to prepare a storm shelter early, and use this during tornado weather.

The more violent wobble is inciting tornadoes over the N American continent in several ways. First, it drives the Earth under her blanket of air twice daily. During the Figure 8 the N Pole of Earth forms daily, the Earth first leans her magnetic N Pole away from the Sun when it rises up over the horizon at dawn, and then leans her magnetic N Pole away from the Sun toward the other direction ahead of sunset. Since the magnetic N Pole is in the Arctic between Canada and Siberia, this lurching about affects the N American continent primarily. What happens when the N American continent is pushed into the north Pacific at dawn, and again into the north Atlantic at dusk? Cold air is driven over the warm air found overland - precisely what tornadoes need in order to form. A tornado is a pool of cold air atop a pool of warm air. The cold air drops, and spirals as it does so. As the N American continent has warmed inland due to the change of seasons, the contrast between air over the northern oceans and the air inland has increased. Thus the increase in tornadoes during May. What will happen as the continent warms during summer, increasing the contrast? The cold air driven atop the now hot air will find a greater contrast, and tornadoes will increase!


The Earth wobble is intrinsically connected to a churning atmosphere, and is one of the reasons ZetaTalk was able to go on record early in the ZetaTalk saga with predictions on weather irregularities andtornadoes and hurricanes occurring in atypical places. We knew that the Earth wobble would develop. The Earth wobble centers around the magnetic N Pole, forming a Figure 8. This means that the up/down and side-to-side motion of the wobble engages the Arctic region, daily. Where the complaint is that a normal 40 hour cyclone became a 5 day cyclone, this may in the near future be a minor complaint. It is likely to become a perpetual cyclone, or close to this scenario.


It seems the tremendous increase in tornadoes in the past week must be due to the approach of Nibiru. Is this in response to the wobble, and will it settle down soon or should we expect even more and worse after the "traditional" end of the tornado season

Yes, this is due to the wobble. And no, it will not settle down. And yes, it will get worse.

Canada already plagued with -50 wind chills, major snow

Wednesday, November 21, 2018, 6:30 AM - Record breaking snowfall, record setting low temperatures, -50 wind chills, impossible driving conditions amid freezing rain and ice. Sounds like the heart of the winter season doesn't it? In reality, ALL of these harsh winter conditions have plagued different parts of the country this fall, leaving little to no areas untouched. Will this be a sign of what's to come this winter or will Mother Nature start to loosen its frosty grip? More on what's happened (keep in mind we had to limit this to just a few main events because the wintry scenes have been endless) and what lies ahead this winter, below.


It's currently a tale of two seasons across the Prairies as milder Pacific air and Chinook winds send temperatures soaring to the mid-teens once again in parts of Alberta. That's all while extreme cold warnings cover areas of northern Manitoba where wind chill values are making things feel closer to the -40s. In fact, Thompson, Manitoba recorded a core morning temperature of -35°C on Monday, beating out any cold temperatures the city of Toronto has EVER set in its history.

"The coldest temperature Toronto has ever had was -32.8°C in 1859," says Weather Network meteorologist Chris Murphy. "That means it's been colder in Thompson, Manitoba this fall than it ever gets in Toronto during the winter."

And although Alberta is currently on the "better" side of that storm track, let's not forget the record setting snowfall that walloped southern regions in early Oct.... Calgary ground to a halt after 40 cm of snow hammered the city, prompting appeals to neighbouring cities for additional snow removal equipment. 

View image on TwitterView image on Twitter


A November chill is by no means rare across parts of our far north, but a recent six consecutive days of record low temperatures with wind chills in the minus FIFTIES does seem a bit extreme. 

View image on Twitter

A wind chill of -52 was recorded on November 18 and 19 in Chesterfield Inlet, Nunavut with a new record low temperature of -35.4°C also set on November 18. That beat out the previous record of -30°C set in 1996. 


Probably the most impressive scenes of winter we've seen this fall land in eastern Canada where endless systems have completely buried the region. Get ready for this. Since the start of September, Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador has recorded a whopping 162 cm of ...with a record-setting October snowfall helping to give these numbers a healthy boost. The town picked up nearly 85 cm in October alone, smashing previous October records, which all sat around 60 cm, in the years of 1999, 1996, 1962 and 1944.


There several contributors to the unusually harsh and widespread arrival of winter weather across Canada this year.

"When we look back at history we see that years with a developing El Niño, November often features a jet stream pattern that delivers arctic air to much of central and eastern Canada and that is what we are seeing again this year," says Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham. "However, this year we are also seeing what is called 'cross polar flow.'"

So instead of just having arctic air from northern Canada diving south, we are seeing air from Siberia coming over the top of north pole and plunging south into Canada. This is bringing the coldest air in the northern hemisphere right into Canada.

"We also have a blocking pattern in the atmosphere that has resulted in us getting stuck in this set-up for an extended period of time," Gillham adds.


According to Gillham, the weather pattern during November is typically a poor predictor of what is to come for the winter season, though history does show us a few examples of years in which the dominant pattern for winter did set-up during November. The big question here: Is what we are currently a false start to winter or a preview of what is to come?

According to our winter forecast, which will be released in an all day event on Monday November 26th, it depends on which part of Canada that you call home.

"For parts of Canada we expect that the dominant weather pattern will be different from what we have seen during the fall, while others are indeed seeing a preview of the winter to come," warns Gillham.

As the world’s largest waves, and wind gusts of more than 100 km/h hit Newfoundland, the island started shaking like during an earthquake

The effects of the incredibly strong low pressure system moving through Atlantic Canada caused more than ripples across the Atlantic Ocean this week, causing giant waves to track towards Europe and Africa. The LARGEST waves on the planet crashed onto the Grand Banks of Newfoundland with significant wave height over 15 metres (50 feet) and theoretical maximum wave height over 30 metres (100 feet) on November 14-15, 2018. Large swells and surf reached Ireland, Portugal, and parts of Africa this weekend. As the world’s largest waves, and wind gusts of more than 100 km/h hit Newfoundland, the island started shaking like during an earthquake. Just look at this image from a seismograph in St. John below… It was going crazy:

As the world’s largest waves, and wind gusts of more than 100 km/h hit Newfoundland, the island is shaking like during an earthquake! Insane!

According to John Cassidy, a seismologist at the Department of Natural Resources of Canada, similar seismic activity is recorded at this time of the year when giant waves combined to high winds engulf the eastern and western coastal regions of Canada.

Police say other parts of the major north-south highway at risk due to heavy rains; IDF search-and-rescue team airlifts four stranded hikers to safety

Photos and videos posted online showed Route 90 near the Kidron River split in half after large portions of the pavement crumbled several meters into the ground.

Rainfall throughout the day Friday caused flooding in a number of areas in the Judaean Desert and northern Negev.

Police said the military’s elite search-and-rescue Unit 669 was dispatched to find four hikers in Nahal Og who were stranded in a cave by rising floodwaters. The hikers were pulled to safely via military helicopter, and one was hospitalized for minor injuries, according to a statement.

In a statement, police warned that other parts of Route 90 may be at risk of collapse due to the flash flooding,

Tens of thousands of people flee and a town of 30,000 wiped out by a wildfire in Northern California fuelled by predicted strong winds

Tens of thousands of people fled a fast-moving wildfire Thursday in Northern California, some clutching babies and pets as they abandoned vehicles and struck out on foot ahead of the flames that forced the evacuation of an entire town and destroyed hundreds of structures.
"Pretty much the community of Paradise is destroyed, it's that kind of devastation," said Cal Fire Capt. Scott McLean late Thursday.
"The wind that was predicted came and just wiped it out."
McLean estimated that a couple of thousand structures were destroyed in the town of 27,000 residents about 180 miles (290 kilometers) northeast of San Francisco, was ordered to get out.
The extent of the injuries and specific damage count was not immediately known as officials could not access the dangerous area.
Butte County CalFire Chief Darren Read said at a news conference that two firefighters and multiple residents were injured.
As she fled, Gina Oviedo described a devastating scene in which flames engulfed homes, sparked explosions and toppled utility poles.
"Things started exploding," Oviedo said.
"People started getting out of their vehicles and running."
An Associated Press photographer saw dozens of businesses and homes leveled or in flames, including a liquor store and gas station.
"It's a very dangerous and very serious situation," Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said.
"I'm driving through fire as we speak.
We're doing everything we can to get people out of the affected areas."
The blaze erupted as windy weather swept the state, creating the extreme fire danger.
A wind-whipped fire north of Los Angeles in Ventura County burned up to 15 square miles and at least one home in a matter of hours.
It threatened thousands of homes and prompted evacuations of a mobile home park, a state university campus and some neighborhoods.
A nearby blaze was smaller at about 2 square miles but moving quickly.
Acting California Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency for the fire-stricken area in Northern California.
Shari Bernacett said her husband tried to get people to leave the Paradise mobile home park they manage.
He "knocked on doors, yelled and screamed" to alert as many residents as possible, Bernacett said. "My husband tried his best to get everybody out.
The whole hill's on fire.
God help us!" she said before breaking down crying.
She and her husband grabbed their dog, jumped in their pickup truck and drove through flames before getting to safety, she said.
Terrifying videos posted on social media showed cars driving along roads that looked like tunnels of fire with flames on both sides of the road.
Concerned friends and family posted frantic messages on Twitter and other sites saying they were looking for loved ones, particularly seniors who lived at retirement homes or alone.
Among them was Kim Curtis, who was searching for her grandmother, who told family at 8 a.m. Thursday that she would flee her Paradise home in her Buick with her cat.
Her grandmother, who is in her 70s and lives alone, never showed up at a meeting spot in Chico, though.
"We've just been posting all over social media. And just praying for a miracle, honestly," said Curtis, who lives in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Officials were sending as many firefighters as they could, Cal Fire spokesman Rick Carhart said. "Every engine that we could put on the fire is on the fire right now, and more are coming," he said. "There are dozens of strike teams that we're bringing in from all parts of the state."
The sheriff confirmed reports that evacuees had to abandon their vehicles.
Rescuers were trying to put them in other vehicles, he said.
"We're working very hard to get people out.
The message I want to get out is: If you can evacuate, you need to evacuate," Honea said.
The wildfire was reported around daybreak.
Within six hours, it had grown to more than 26 square miles (69 square kilometers), Gaddie said. Thick grey smoke and ash filled the sky above Paradise and could be seen from miles away.
Fire officials said the flames were being fueled by winds, low humidity, dry air and severely parched brush and ground from months without rain.
"Basically, we haven't had rain since last May or before that," said Read, the fire chief.
"Everything is a very receptive fuel bed.
It's a rapid rate of spread."
At the hospital in Paradise, more than 60 patients were evacuated to other facilities and some buildings caught fire and were damaged.
But the main facility, Adventist Health Feather River Hospital, was not, spokeswoman Jill Kinney said.
Some of the patients were initially turned around during their evacuation because of gridlocked traffic and later airlifted to other hospitals, along with staff, Kinney said.
Four hospital employees were briefly trapped in the basement and rescued by California Highway Patrol officers, Kinney said.
The National Weather Service issued red-flag warnings for fire dangers in many areas of the state, saying low humidity and strong winds were expected to continue through Friday evening.

Weather bombs on "rebel" Italy in Europe ...

2 November 2018

All weather patterns on the belpaese were upset. At one time the Atlantic perturbations flowed from the north-west of Europe through the gulf of Biscay and headed south-east.

But what is happening these days is unbelievable if it was not really happening.

As from nothing, huge masses of cloud are forming from central Africa, which violently go back to the north, and hit Italy like a bazooka, with the devastating consequences we are seeing.
Stormy seas with waves up to ten meters high, winds of hurricane that flatten thousands of trees as if they were cardboard, torrential rains that are moving dangerous landslides, lightning and lightning bolts, swollen rivers ready to overflow and devastate a fragile territory ulvers from a hydrogeological point of view.
