El Nino and Pop Up Storms for 2009-2010



Weather problems are nothing new. However a pattern of extreme weather is something to watch. Will this season be normal or extreme?

Hopefully, we will have normal weather this next season, and not extreme weather.

Bible application

The extreme weather patterns are linked to changes in the end times, called the beginning of sorrows.

Among other signs, earthquakes and fearful sights from heaven would be one sign of the end times.

Luk 21:11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

The earth will, or is, apparently going through changes. Are what we seeing extreme enough to qualify for what Jesus described?

Jesus mentioned earthquakes, but we seem to have always had them. So they will be still happening.

Pestilences may be due to several factors, and one of these may be that nature is out of balance, due to the environment (global warming, pollution, changes in weather patterns, and soil or water conditions).

The expression that “fearful sights and signs from heaven” may not be just due to UFOs, missiles, or zodiac arrangements, although they might be important.

Another sign may be more category 5 hurricanes (typhoons) coming in our direction. I would consider this a fearful sight to behold, especially if I was living in its path:


El nino

I have collected some information about El Nino, and how it could influence weather, and famine (due to conditions being either too wet, or dry).

(1) http://dsc.discovery.com/news/2009/07/09/el-nino-hurricanes.html

In general, El Nino conditions are associated with increased rainfall across the east-central and eastern Pacific and with drier than normal conditions over northern Australia, Indonesia and the Philippines.

A summer El Nino can lead to wetter than normal conditions in the intermountain regions of the United States and over central Chile. In an El Nino year there tend to be more Eastern Pacific hurricanes and fewer Atlantic hurricanes.

NOAA officials noted that not all El Nino effects are negative. For example, it can suppress Atlantic hurricanes and bring needed moisture to the arid Southwest .

But it can also steer damaging winter storms to California and increase storminess across the southern United States.

(2) http://www.knmi.nl/research/global_climate/enso/effects/

El Niño affects the weather in large parts of the world. The effects depend strongly on the location and the season.

The strongest effects on precipitation are in South-East Asia and the western Pacific Ocean, especially in the dry season (August-November).

There are temperature effects throughout most of the tropics.

The number of tropical cyclones also depends on El Niño in most basins. In boreal winter the effects are most wide-spread: from southern Africa to eastern Russia and most of the Americas.


Blue circles indicate that during El Niño there was, on average, more rain than normal, red circles indicate drought during El Niño.

La Niña (pattern of cold air) has the opposite effect in almost all locations.

The size of the circles is a measure of the strength of the relationship.

Presented here are the extreme seasons:

September-November (map below) This season the effects of El Niño are strongest. Almost all of Indonesia, the Philippines and eastern Australia are drier than usual during most El Niño events. Large parts of India are often drier than usual, but the Sri Lanka and some southern states get more rain. East Africa, parts of Central Asia and Spain are also on average wetter than normal during El Niño in this season, as are Chili and Uruguay.


December-February (map below) In boreal winter the Philippines and East Indonesia stay drier, whereas the Pacific islands along the equator remain wetter. Florida also gets more rain than normal during El Niño, this effect extends to other southern states of the U.S. and into Mexico. South Africa is more frequently dry, as is the northern coast of South America and some of the leeward Antilles. In Uruguay en South Brasil rainfall increases on average. Along the coasts of Ecuador and Peru rainfall increases when the coastal waters heat up, an effect also named El Niño but not always coincident with the warming along the equator that affects the rest of the world.



Tropical Cyclones

During El Niño there are on average fewer hurricanes over the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. La Niña often brings more.

The west coast of Mexico and the United States see more landfalling hurricanes during El Niño.

In the central Pacific Ocean El Niño brings more typhoons, both north and south of the equator. The more easterly genesis makes that fewer of these tropical cyclones reach Australia.

In the northern Pacific Ocean the area with typhoons also shifts east. There are no effects on the number of cyclones over the Indian Ocean.


Pop Up Storms

Although El Nino may not be a source of hurricanes in some areas, will pop up storms bring them anyhow?

News and Weather stories

(1) US Gulf may see pop-up storms – Accuweather


The Gulf of Mexico may see intense, rapidly developing hurricanes during the 2009 Atlantic hurricane season that appear to pop up without warning

(2) Pop-Up Storms Change Our Timeframe


Typically during the Atlantic storm season, hurricanes would form off of the coast of Africa and travel westward towards the United States, providing ample notice of impending landfall.

But meteorologists are noting a new trend, possibly beginning with Hurricane Umberto in 2007, in which storms “pop up” off the coast of the United States and make landfall very rapidly. This means that residents of affected areas have less notice to prepare evacuations.

(3) Are Pop-up Storms on the Rise?


Safety tips given here, and preparation.

The presence of warm water in the Gulf and the Atlantic Ocean — where waters heat up faster than waters off Africa — could be a key factor in the formation of these pop-up storms.

Once conditions are favorable, the pop-up storms can quickly reach category 4 or 5 status.

They are likely to contribute to excessive rain and flash floods. Judging from storm behavior in recent times, most deaths from tropical storms have been caused by storm-related floods, according to the National Hurricane Center based in Miami.

And because there is less time to warn people about them, more people might be at risk.


Will El Nino cancel out, or make less likely, any pop up storms for the 2009-2010 season?

I personally do not know.

But, it appears to be an odd set of patterns to coincide with each other.

The best thing to do is be informed, prepare for the worst, and hope for the best. God bless you.

  1. Rev 6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

    ‘Untimely’ is the key adjective here in this Scripture.

    Very informative Post.

  2. I live in S. Calif and have watched many El Ninos come over the years. It is reported that the proper conditions are now occurring way West of us to bring us another El Nino next rainy season. It is with mixed emotions to anticipate this. We are in great drought in Calif. and in need of rain. Yet we know the El Nino brings flooding and much damage with it.

    If you enter “California Earthquakes” on your explorer, you will find maps of recent earthquakes. The cluster of these along the San Andreas fault is awesome to look at. It may portend a major quake coming for us. DavWms

  3. The Lord of Heaven gave me 2 dates, a little while ago.
    The first date He gave me is August 23 and the second date He gave me
    is November 1.
    I know that we are still in the year of which He called:
    ‘The Blessed Year of The Lord.’
    So August falls in this year.
    But as for November 1 is after Rosh Hashanah I still don’t know for sure its’
    And even August 23 is fearful for me.
    Does any one at all know anything about these two dates?
    I have asked The Lord … and He has not yet told me much.

  4. Abigail,
    you said above: “I know that we are still in the year of which He called:‘The Blessed Year of The Lord.’”

    Where do you get this stuff? I am becoming increasingly suspicious that you are a fraud. I think it is time for you to reveal yourself and true motives. If you are unable to post your personal testimony, how will anyone believe you when you post visions, dreams or other special “revelations” like those two dates above?

    • Ian ,

      How did I offend you?

      Do you not know that He who follows The Lord ‘HEAR’ His voice??
      I never said I was unable to post my testimony.
      I said I would not know how. … nor where to begin.
      And what is it to you who I am?
      If you are with Christ then you are not against me? Right?

      A Fraud in my dictionary is define as such
      a person or thing intended to deceive others, typically by unjustifiably claiming or being credited with accomplishments or qualities.
      I have never claimed anything for myself.
      And as far as you know I am just ‘Abigail’.
      If I was a trickster wouldn’t I seek my OWN glory?
      I always speak and write what The Spirit of God has revealed to me and always
      as though (and He does) He Hears me.
      I am accountable to no one but to Him.

      I am a Christian and a fully devoted Christian to My God.

  5. Well said Abigail. Ian you are a bully.

  6. That doesn’t suprise me because many thought the Apostle Paul to be a “bully”
    If you make certain claims…
    i.e.: ‘Untimely’ “is the key adjective here in this Scripture.”

    The word is “unripe” figs, and it is not the key adjective here in this scripture.

    Or other claims of special revelations…
    “The Lord of Heaven gave me 2 dates, a little while ago.
    The first date He gave me is August 23 and the second date He gave me is November 1.
    I know that we are still in the year of which He called:
    ‘The Blessed Year of The Lord.’
    So August falls in this year.
    But as for November 1 is after Rosh Hashanah I still don’t know for sure its’ name.
    And even August 23 is fearful for me.”

    How can anyone decipher what is truth here? How can you tell if this writer has had a revelation from God or just a strange dream? If you allow anything that is questionable, you will allow everything without question. Fiction becomes fact and before you know it, you are following a pied-piper into never never land. Titus 3:9-11

    • What is the key adjective Ian?
      Mighty ?
      You say… ‘and it is not the key adjective here in this scripture’
      I am curious as to what ‘you’ say the key adjective is.

  7. You said (How can anyone decipher what is truth here?)

    The Lord’s knowledge is acquired through revelation, not learning. Everything we do here affects the entire universe, and that makes every action we do extremely important.

    We are all trying to do our best, and no-one has the absolute truth only YHWH IS THE TRUTH.

    • It is a sad thing that not many know this ….
      And let me add to your statement ‘The Lord’s knowledge is acquired through
      revelation, not learning’…
      The sacrifices of God [are] a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
      Revelation is given to those who are poor in spirit and broken down in true
      Of these The Lord says …
      Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
      The Lord God is true to His blessings.
      And if one is blessed of Him then truly one is blessed.
      But not without persecutions and envies … but even in these the one who is blessed of The Lord King is blessed in abundance.
      I see that if only people would only humble themselves before Him and learn
      of Him anew… they too would be blessed.
      But many prefer to rely on their puny little understanding full of pride against The Lord God Almighty than to bow the knee, the mind, the heart, the soul willingly
      to their Creator.
      Now how sad is this?
      They will weep and yes they will howl and so very soon …
      when they see Him coming in The Glory of Heaven.
      Their knee will bow then … but it may be too late …
      since they despised Him and despised The Workings of The Holy Spirit.


    You guys have totally lost me!!!!!!

    Both learning and revelation are important. When we learn the bible scriptures, we are studying revelation.

  9. Let us try to understand one another.
    The Word of God is:
    1) Truth. Psalms 119:142, 151, 160
    2) Living. Hebrews 4:12
    3) Sanctifying. Ephesians 5:26
    4) A Sword. Ephesians 6:17
    5) God’s revealed plan. Romans 9:6
    6) God’s completed revelation. Colossians 1:25-28

    God’s word is much more than for the purpose of learning. It is actually alive, it is the life-breath of God himself. It is also complete in itself. That is why we are warned “not to add nor take away” from His Word. If someone claims of receiving a new revelation from God we need to verify by scripture. If it conflicts with God’s Word, we ought to reject it.
    Revelation is the uncovering of something hidden. The source is God, if it is true. If it is false, then you know that it did not come from God. Sometimes we get fooled, so John tells us to test the spirits: “Beloved; do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God: because many false prophets have gone out into the world” 1 John 4:1

  10. Ian ,
    The Word of God is Spirit,
    Therefore it is Truth.
    The spoken Word of The Lord creates because He is Life.
    And His Word is like Himself.
    By His Word The Heavens and The Earth and all that there is therein were created
    and are sustained by His Word.

    So Powerful is His Word … who can truly know Him.
    You would NOT know where to start because He is from Everlasting to Everlasting.
    Behold He never sends His Word to return to Him void.

    But God gives The Holy Spirit who knows and understands the mind of man
    and also knows and understands The Mind of God …because The Holy Spirit is
    first Holy and also Spirit … coming from God and is The Mind of God.
    And The Holy Spirit is The Power of God.

    Now having said this we must also know that if we are born of God then we are born of The Spirit of God.
    Therefore we have both The Father and The Son indwelling.

    But not all are born of God and not all are His children.

    God reveals Himself to those of His choice and this in earthen vessels.
    But God is Holy so therefore He prepares and sanctifies and fortifies those who have humbled themselves.
    This is His doing and not the doings of man.

    It is impossible with all your learnings if these learnings are from man … to know God.
    Alas… many have a form of godliness but deny The Power of God,
    and we are instructed to stay away from these.
    2Ti 3:16
    All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
    2Ti 3:17
    That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

    In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
    that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent,
    and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father;
    for so it seemed good in thy sight.

    Now, Yeshua says: ‘All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father;
    neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and [he] to whomsoever the Son will reveal [him].

    Only by Revelation can you know God or the things of God.
    Many have search in their own strength and have remained blind to the Truth to this day.
    It is God that opens the eyes and the ears and if these are still shut and closed it is because
    you are still in sin and have not yet repented
    to Gods’ standard.
    He knows your heart.
    And He desires Truth in the depth of your belly.

    For many have spent years searching the scriptures and yet have not come to the full knowledge of The Truth.
    Search your heart and do so from His Law so that you may be broken.

    • That is right Abigail, you have answered well, for many have spent years searching the scriptures and yet have not come to the full knowledge of The Truth.

      (Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.)

      Pilate could not see the truth when the truth was standing in front of him, that Yeshua is Hamashia.

      • Billy,

        Even Peter who had followed Jesus did not know who Jesus was
        … until by revelation it was given to him.

        And Jesus answered and said unto him,
        Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona:
        for flesh and blood hath not revealed [it] unto thee,
        but my Father which is in heaven.

        Man cannot reveal to another …
        we can speak and write but it is God
        who Lives and it is God who reveals Himself.

        The Scriptures are sealed so that no man will boast.
        Flesh and blood knows only flesh and blood …
        But The Spirit of God knows the things of God.
        And if any wants to know Him …
        he must first deny himself!

        As is written: ‘Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel;
        I [am] the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit,

  11. Very true Abigail

    • Billy ,

      If only people would be broken in The Potters Hand …
      then they would be reborn and …
      and this time around … a new creation …
      a true child of The Living God.
      And unless this occurs, people remain condemned.
      And people are still dead in their sins.

  12. Abigail….As far as the August 23rd date, maybe this has something to do with it??? -With Love in Christ, Catrina-

    • Hi Catrina,

      Thank you, for this suggestion.
      It could be??? But I don’t know??
      There are so many evils that any of them could be what The Lord was referring to …
      … And maybe He was pointing to a time that would be a blessing for us??
      I really don’t know … what experience or what type?
      I will wait on Him and trust in Him.

    • I’ve done a little research on the net …
      and this is some of the things I’ve found. Copy and paste/
        Prepare now or weep later!  Mounting evidence is coming in from all over the country that the entire economic system in America will collapse at some point in August.  News reports indicate that a “bank holiday” will be declared with all banks closing for a day or two, or up to as long as a week.  When this happens no one will be able to withdraw any money from their bank account.  People need to take heed and get their funds out NOW before the banks close.
           In preparation for this [?] the head of FEMA has met with the Governors of several states to discuss “emergency preparedness,” even including developing a family emergency plan.  Isn’t this great?  It is the politicians and bureaucrats who got us into this mess, and now they want to make plans for our families?  Do their plans include Martial Law?  Concentration camps?  Elimination of the sick, handicapped, mentally retarded, and elderly?  Does this sound like the rantings of a mad man?  Then maybe you should  read for yourself the excerpts from Obama’s Health Care Reform Plan that are being released daily by various news services.  Example:  On page 425 it is decreed that every five years those on Medicare will be required to meet with a “counselor” who will instruct them in the various methods of “how to end their life sooner.”  Hello!  Are you awake yet?   God have mercy!
        School’s Out Forever!  This is the headline of a news article printed in Christianity Today.  The article is about the closing of hundreds of Christian schools across America due to the collapsing economy.  Christian schools are supported by the churches, and by those parents who want their children to have a “Christian education.”  With thousands of people across America losing their jobs and their homes, many Christian parents can no longer afford to send their children to Christian schools.

      WHO has also suggested that countries close their schools to avoid
      Swine flu …

      To name a few!

      • hi abigail

        The politicians still want their own money to be safe. If the banks close, I wonder what will happen to the stock market at the same time, and how long will this last?.

    • Now how crazy is this????

      Don’t they know what consist this so called vaccine???

      It is like the good pastor says: ‘Are you awake yet??’
      Maybe the Americas is Babylon after all …
      They are all so confused!!

  13. Abigail, you said above:
    “People need to take heed and get their funds out NOW before the banks close.”

    If everyone pulled their money out, the banks will surely fail! The Great Depression should have taught all Americans that lesson.

    Also:Billy, you wrote:

    “That is right Abigail, you have answered well, for many have spent years searching the scriptures and yet have not come to the full knowledge of The Truth.”

    You must be referring here to II Timothy 3:7. To keep this in context, however, you need to include the rest of the verses that Paul is writing to Timothy about. The description of these men that are “always learning, yet unable to come to the knowledge of the truth” are heathen, not Christians at all. So the first step to understanding truth in scripture, is to know the author. In other words, one needs to be “born again” or “born of spirit”. Plainly put: one must be a Christian!

    • Hi Ian,

      The banks are one system. The stock market is another. Would the banks reopen after a week? Or stay closed forever?

      Would the stock market be affected by a one week bank closure?

      I agree about the “learned people” who do not come to the knowledge of the truth. Learning is ok, but if they are ignorant of the word of god, or reject it, they lack true understanding of anything spiritual.

    • That is right Ian one needs to be “born again” “born of Ha-Kodesh Ruach (YHWH’S BREATH )”. Plainly put: one must be a follower of Yeshua (Jesus).

  14. First of all … I didn’t say anything. I only copied and pasted writings accumulated from
    deductions of a certain pastor. He seems to know what is declared in much news media.

    For myself I am not an expert in either the stock market, nor the banking systems.
    I watch the news and do much reading on these subjects, but to be honest they are not my favorite fields of knowledge, nor research.
    Although it does appear The banks of Switzerland have given X amount of time for
    Americans to pull their funds out of their banks.

    It also does appear that the american dollar is set for collapse.
    It seems that foreign countries have lost trust in U.S. credibility.
    Who knows??
    And even those who report to know … are themselves unsure.
    And frankly I personally don’t care.
    I do know that hard times are ahead and many a burden will we have to shoulder.
    When The Lord returns, will He find Faith???

  15. Hi Marianne,
    I would think that the market would crash upon any news of a failed banking system. A domino effect occurs as currency is devalued, wealth of many vaporizes and mass anarchy sets in. Government(s) will have no choice but to forcefully control the masses. However, something big needs to happen, in my opinion, to trigger this. It is my personal belief, that the “Rapture” could be that trigger.
    Should the rapture happen today, my fear is not for my wife or myself, but for those closest to us that have resisted the Lord. Namely, to start, our two boys. The eldest is 21, the younger is 19. Too busy living life than to consider eternity. Both knowing the truth, yet not interested enough to prepare an escape by committing their lives to Jesus Christ.
    They could be left behind to face the horrors of the tribulation head on. I know we are not alone, as there is countless families facing the same scenario, should the Lord return today.

    • Hi Ian,

      I know how you feel.

      I have 2 children.

      Their attitude is “not now, I am busy, maybe later, you talk about God too much, talk about something else.”

      I do not think there will be a rapture this year….maybe I am wrong…since that can happen at any time. While it is physically safe, there is no reason for the Lord to remove us.

      I has not gotten dangerous enough yet for there to be a reason to leave. It might be true by next year at this time.

      I hope God, in his mercy, will delay things, giving time for our children to wake up, as a few more events occur.

  16. I sure you believe as I, that the rapture is imminent and that no man knows the day or hour of His return.

    Those that “know the truth” but do not come to a saving understanding are left behind to strange and corrupt new world. Those will get what they want but will not want what they get. I thinks part of the ‘great lie’ that today’s people buy into, is they think they can sin and get away with it.
    Those of our kin, who have lived with us and perhaps mocked at our faith, will suddenly begin to understand of the great price that our Lord paid for the penalty of our sins on the cross. I believe that these will be the first Christians of the Tribulation Age. The book of Revelation will be their guide book as they try to survive this horrible time.

  17. Wow…a great blog to read! Let’s love each other, as Christ tells us to. All of this will one day come to pass…we have nothing to fear brothers and sisters, we are not of this world… 😉

  18. Hey Abigail!
    Are you still there? So what happened on those two dates? Seems everyone on this page disappeared after the autumnal equinox. Hmmmmm.

  19. Coldest winter in 1000 years predicted for Russia
