Polo, IL – From politics to economics, war and even diseases, everything that’s happening now has in some way happened before. The research of weather cycles has offered new insights into our past and what is likely to happen in the future.

For over 25 years, 3F Forecasts (http://www.3fforecasts.com) has published its unique newsletter, offering predictions and insights for how weather affects commodities and the stock market. Under the direction of climatologist Larry Acker, 3F Forecasts’ newsletter employs in-depth research across a variety of disciplines to deliver long-range predictions.

“This is essential reading for anyone interested in the dynamics of weather and its related agricultural, financial and futures activity,” says Acker. “If we can anticipate these cycles, we can respond in time.”

3F Forecasts stands for “Futures, Farming and Finance.” 3F Forecasts researches weather cycles for all major agricultural areas of the world. Acker applies this data to determine how weather will affect the futures market and costs of food.

“Climatology is a form of history. You’re studying the history of weather and its effects,” says Acker. “The ability to predict major weather and global events is of tremendous value.”

Acker’s uncanny ability to identify trends and patterns dates back 48 years to his time studying geochemistry and climatology at the University of Illinois.

“It’s a hobby that’s turned into a business and I am busy, especially now,” says Acker. “It can be politics, economics, the weather; you don’t know what’s coming next and you can discover some really interesting stuff you had no idea was there.”
