    And only 8 days for it to go completely wrong and end up drier and warmer than average again I think another 24 hours or so is needed before any confidence can be given on said breakdown, especially considering how the models have backtracked so many times on this type of evolution. Conditions look good still until Friday before then though so plenty of summer-like weather to enjoy before then with temperatures into the low/mid twenties in places.

    This morning, using the usual 500mb anomalies, and they are still not that similar, but near enough to suggest that an upper trough not a ridge will be the main effect on the surface by mid to late next week. The 120h Fax shows the high to the north holding off any Atlantic but I suspect this will be altered over the next 2-3 days, that is for a chart valid for Wednesday onwards.

    Indeed. Looks like the gfs 06z is showing signs of prolonging the settled weather into next week, but going against its previous 00z run. Ecm has been fairly consistent over the last few days with a change in our weather during this coming midweek, and although both models have showed pretty poor modelling of late, ecm over the last few days as shown more consistency with its modelling, so if I had to put money on a model ,this time it would be the Ecm.....

    Very hard at the moment to forecast beyond 5 days ,each day seems to bring a prolonging of the dry and sunny weather .the charts a couple of days ago were going for more of a change later next week ,but it does look like the atlantic will be on the attack so possibilitys afoot for a possible showery spell but nothing yet concrete .i have been tuning in to our fantastic Net weather forum and have enjoyed all the input from posters ,all the best to all ,and as the nights now gradually pull in heres to a memorable [winter forum ]cheers from legritter .

    Hi polar maritime, whilst your statement is quite correct in what the gfs is showing , it's extremely unlikely a gfs chart from deep fairy tale land will verify , the last week we'v seen very few t144 charts get any where close let alone something that's over 300 hours away. For me June has even a fantastic month , despite lots of people forecasting it to be wash out . Lots of sunshine , 2/3 thunderstorms , and lots of warm temps in early 20's . Next week looking a week of transition in my opinion to a more westerly type pattern , no wash out , no northerly plunge , just weather breaking somewhat but pleasant by day and warm in Sunshine.

    compare the subtle changes on the latest Fax chart for Wednesday with the one for 24 hours ago. I do believe that the subsequent charts will follow this idea, slightly lower pressure values in the same chart areas and a more Atlantic look rather than the high to the north blocking that flow. Also fits with the 500mb guidance as I see it. http://www.weathercharts.org/ukmomslp.htm#t120

    It does look like a breakdown will occur at the end of the week, but the details look very messy. UKMO looks way too clean and removes heights north of the UK. ECM shows how complications can occur if the high to the north links up with either the ridge to the south east or south west of the UK. This could delay things or sods law stall low pressure over the UK. Beyond that, I will admit that the outlook looks changeable, but rather surprised at the hints of drier and very warm conditions potentially developing into mid-July from the metoffice update.

    12Z charts from GFS, ECM and UKMO all quite different really by T144. GFS keeps a weak ridge over us with frontal activity mainly confined to the north (thundery outbreaks further south possible) - still warm. UKMO loses all heights and looks set for a longer period of unsettled weather. ECM in the middle - a small depression makes it through blocks to the north and the south - maybe unsettled for a couple of days but no prolonged breakdown. So while an end to the anticyclonic dominance looks likely, no clear way ahead from next weekend just yet.

    Up at 0630. Back to bed when the sun got too much. Up again at 1130. Breakfast. Mulled around on here inbetween playing Xbox games in a darkened room. Pal phoned up having a spot of bother with his mo'bike. Had to begrudgingly go out in the awful glare of the day to fix that. Came back and had a nap. Going to shop soon,when the light at least starts to fade a little. Out all day tomorrow - forecast is bad so not looking forward to that at all. Wish it was mid November so badly.

    Quite a deep low being shown in the GFS run. Very windy UK wide with gales and severe gales very probable at this stage. A lot of rain, heavy at that, since the airmass is looking quite warm and humid. Worth keeping an eye on as it may cause some damage as trees are in full leaf and some places are still prone to flooding.

    This weather is really getting on my mammaries now. It's ok for week or so, then my patience starts to fray. Hayfever, midges, insects, light at something past 3 in the morning, 11pm at night. Heat, sunburn, humidity, having to water garden. People blasting loud horrific music. Hard to sleep. Reminds me of and confirms exactly why I don't like this weather at this time of year. At least some light at the end of the tunnel now we're at solstice. Models hinting at some changes as well. Bring on the blizzardcanes and Ice Age.

    Uruguay have 3 million people - 1/3 the population of London - and reached the semi-finals in 2010 and beat England this year. England have 50+ million people, the home of football, have one of the best leagues in the world, significant resources, a rich FA. The evidence I've seen over the past few years suggests the whole English game is broken from the bottom to the top. I read recently that Italy, Spain, Germany and France have over 20,000 youth coaches each. England just ~2,300! When Germany, Spain and Belgium entered a barren period they decided to rip everything up and start again, investing in a transformation of the whole football setup with a brand new vision and mission. Look at the fruit it has produced! England have had 50 years of mediocrity and barrenness and despite some talk don't seem to be doing much. They really shouldn't be seeing a 1/4 final place as an achievement, even a semi-final, they could do soooo much better. If England followed Spain, Germany etc they could be transformed in a decade and be a major international force. It just needs the commitment and investment from the authorities but that seems to be lacking. The slate needs to be wiped clean and English football needs to start all over again, beginning at the grassroots level. Otherwise the medicority will continue and England will be left further and further behind. I'm not saying this as a bitter Welshman or anything, just offering an opinion as a neutral. I'd like to see England do well in fact which is why it's so frustrating to see the current state of affairs!

    from the end of the coming week, usual caveats apply. A chart like this at day 5 doesn't fill me with much confidence, as I stated before that high to the north could stop the Atlantic low in its tracks just about anywhere. ECM mean is pretty much useless from day 6. Looking at clusters will be your best bet there.

    With Suarez, it's the way he is so good and so controversial, and how the English media have attacked him so much (rightfully or wrongfully) and how he has shown them exactly where to go; and with Argentina, I find the whole debacle from both sides so meaningless in the 21st century, it's madness

    Afternoon all After what looks like another very tough week for hay fever sufferers, some sign of relief next weekend from the GFS 12Z Operational: http://modeles.meteociel.fr/modeles/gfs/runs/2014062112/gfs-0-168.png?12 GEM keeps the settled conditions in the south a fraction lower but by lowering heights more generally to the west and south west offers a much more comprehensive breakdown into July: http://modeles.meteociel.fr/modeles/gem/runs/2014062112/gem-0-168.png?12 Yet the UKMO is far more progressive and this is the chart of the day for me: http://meteociel.com/ukmo/runs/2014062112/UW144-21.GIF?21-18 That's a huge disparity at T+144 with GFS as well as GEM and it's rare to see UKMO take such a line and be the outlier. Kudos to Exeter if they've called this right and I'll be happy though I expect Glastonbury fans won't be so thrilled.

    Not many days have been sunny and warm from start to finish either. There's been a fair bit of cloud to contend with this month, not all of it bad in my book (convective clouds can look very pretty). And it's only low 20s at best - God help you if an actual heatwave arrives! It's been a dry spell for sure but a drop in the ocean compared with how much rain there was before then. Bring the wind and rain in autumn please (though it's bound to happen sooner anyway).

    no...it might not even last the week, thats unlikely.as things stand, the uncertainty for only a few days ahead makes anything over a week away very uncertain. what caught my eye though was the fax charts.. note the high to our north drift and intensify towards us, that looks like it might deflect the incoming, shallow, atlantic troughs and energy into france. i believe this charts supports that kind of scenario this would be good enough news for summer lovers as theres still a strong potential for some summery weather and even a real heatwave to evolve. of course on the other hand its equally feasible that the high/s fail to build sufficiently and the atlantic could 'win' which wouldnt be good news for 'summer' lovers.

    Lol SS, it seems wings has finally hit the 'acceptance' stage. Its compelling reading and even although I had only been doing so for a couple of weeks before the last fundraiser even by then I'd realised it was worth throwing £20 at it. Sometimes you do wonder if Stu has gone a bit too far but then you sit back and watch the MSM fall for it hook, line and sinker. The more they mention Wings the more people head over for a look to see what this evil website full of cybernats is all about. Once they are there, there's a chance they'll stop and read and learn something. Probably the start of the end for the MSM and politicians being able to spout trash and lies without being challenged.

    To be honest ,this is rubbish. The Climate of the Uk is always variable, at any time of year. Just look at the Summer of 1995, a very dry second half of the summer, and given the 1990,s it was a generally warm decade, then came December that year ,reached its coldest temperature of minus 27.2c in Scotland for a record low. We live here in the British Isles in a "Cool Temperate" climate so its weather will always have fluctuations and variability , there is certainly no pattern yearly to our weather....
