Last 201302-27 Thursday i raised by #0.01 a 2nd of the 3 settings which i state the the ml-d uses to influence weather. A few weeks back i raised another setting by
#0.02 then lowered it by #0.01.
This means in the last 3 weeks the ml-d has had 2 of its settings raised. each just #0.01.
i think the 2nd raised setting or because of both led to cooler temps & snow flakes in NYC, 2 days after i changed the 2nd setting. If one remembers all 5 major weather prognosticators expected 2 days (48 hours) before for 201303-02 Saturday for NYC to have partly sunny to partly cloudy skies at 45°-48° F.
Temps where 3° F lower (ahh, most won't care), but snowflakes and over a nice swath instead of partly sunny that was off. Now with a more potent storm, ( named Saturn 2012/13) i think unlike the last 2 or 3 LOWs this one will come ~37% closer if i take into account the new ml-d settings.
What does 37% mean?
The ml-d is at 2nd Ave & 27th street NYC, if the other 3 most recent LOW taking the same route curved closest to nyc at 100-125 miles southwest of South Hampton, L.I. add the 80 miles to the ml-d (80mi. from S. Hampton to Manhattan) thus a total of 180-205 miles away, take 37% off (just for you). Therefore the center of this Low should pass 110-135 SW of 2nd Ave. 27th st or 35-50 miles SW of South Hampton.
