Blog note. Jesus indicated that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up to the time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be identified as the ‘season of the times’ due to the ferociousness of these events. They would be occurring in greater intensity, severity, frequency, size, duration, scope … just like the pains that a woman experiences in labor the farther along she is in the labor process. We are in the ‘season of the times’ that comes just before the seven (7) year Tribulation/Great Tribulation period
… And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11).
… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)
… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)
… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)
Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied Eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor.

Tropical moisture and cold Canadian air are combining in the Southwestern states to produce areas of, locally, heavy rain and widespread heavy mountain snowfall. Flash flooding will be possible in, typically, dry washes of Arizona. This system will move into the Central U.S. on Friday, November 22 and could produce heavy rain and flash flooding in the Mid-South.

A deep upper-level low over the Great Basin is forecast to move eastward to the Western Ohio Valley by Saturday evening, November 23, 2019, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). The system will produce rain and higher-elevation snow over portions of the Great Basin, Central and Southern Rockies, and the Southwest regions.

There will be snow in parts of the Desert Southwest, Great Basin, Southern, and Central Rockies. Light snow and freezing rain are likely for parts of mid-Ohio Valleys. Rain is also expected over areas of the Lower Mississippi, Ohio, and Tennessee Valleys.

Showers and thunderstorms will develop over portions of Southern Plains and Lower Mississippi Valley.

“Rain will develop along the associated front overnight Thursday over parts of the Lower/Middle Mississippi Valley and parts of the Tennessee Valley that will expand into parts of the Ohio Valley on Friday into Friday evening,” NWS said.

On Friday, November 22, rains will develop over parts of the  Central Appalachians or Mid-Atlantic, ending by the evening.

Furthermore, another round of rain will head to the Mid-Atlantic/Central Appalachians into the Southeast on Saturday evening, November 23, into overnight.

Light snow is predicted over parts of the Northern Ohio Valley Saturday afternoon into the evening. There will be chances of freezing rain over the mid-Mississippi Valley on Friday evening, November 22, into the following day.

A front over the Great Lakes extending southwestward to the Southern Plains will head eastward off the Northeast or Mid-Atlantic Coast by Friday evening.

The storm will bring rain and snow over portions of the Upper Great Lakes, ending by Friday afternoon.  

Rain is expected to move into parts of New England on Friday, with rain becoming snow over the Lower Great Lakes on Friday afternoon. The snow will move into New England by Friday evening, ending overnight.

Elsewhere on November 22, onshore flow off the Pacific will begin the late afternoon.
