what's this talk about unusual weather? I thought the asteroid, if it does come close enough to affect us on earth without impact would only cause disruptions in the geomagnetic fields... meaning power and communications disruptions. How exactly does this affect regular weather, such as rain, snow, etc?
I'd be looking for widespread power outages and communications disruptions for signs that this asteroid is getting too close, not if it is unusually warm or cold..
Don't assume I'm completely ignorant. I did a little bit of research, and Ive been to that site. My question was simply how , or perhaps when, we would know where it may hit. If it was going to. I'm sorry I may not be as smart as you but I'm not stupid. I know a rock that size isnt going to kill us all. I was just curious about where it may hit

Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is a term originally referring to mean solar time at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich in London. It is now often used to refer to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) when this is viewed as a time zone, although strictly UTC is an atomic time scale which only approximates GMT in the old sense. It is also used to refer to Universal Time (UT), which is the astronomical concept that directly replaced the original GMT.
