  1. Thanks Its fun yes, and also very mind-heavy. Not to mention the vast amounts of patience it takes, when you come to the point when after 2 hours of work your computer freezes while rendering and loading data, and you dont know if it will un-feeze and finish the job, or you just have to kill the process and start all over again. With my old comp the usual solution was to kill the process and start over until it freezes again and then you kill it again and start over and it freezes again and so on. And each time you change the configuration a bit, reducing the quality or sample size and su

  2. Well it would certainly make life interesting Ed. A strong wave push through the maritime would generate a stark pressure gradient across the Asian massif and inject a surge of westerlies across the Pacific. That would normally amplify the tropospheric wave pattern, and probably set about feedback loops in the stratosphere. Intuitively that would suggest wave breaking through Alaska and counter to the El Niño expectation. But that is highly speculative at this stage, as the main issue will be the destructive forcing from ENSO w/r/t the MJO around phases 3 and 4 through 5 and 6, which so far

  3. If ever there was a project worthy of crowd-sourcing some cash, it would be to buy you a super duper computer to make those 3D animations.....let us know when you need to start collecting :-) By the way, the graphics you made did make the Atlantic look really "cool!" in the other sense.

  4. Which tallies with an eastward forecast shift in (negative anomaly) upper level velocity potential: Week 2 MJO forecast definitely showing some coherence in the Indian Ocean and GFS simulated products picking this up: This MJO wave is not without some considerable interest. If it manages to stay coherent over the next few weeks, and propagate eastwards, angular momentum will ramp up again, and give more assistance to surface warming in the central Equatorial Pacific. Lots of interest also to see whether October's MEI value breaks the magic +3SD only achieved by

  5. So, have you ever wondered how exactly would N Atlantic look like if you would pump out all the water? Well, its one big mountain range (MAR - Mid Atlantic Ridge). It gives you a feeling and a different perspective about how it interact with the ocean currents and AMOC, perhaps kinda like mountains do with atmospheric flow.

  6. Given that nobody knows (and the broadscale seasonal issues are yet even to be adequately resolved) , it's not a question of 'is it even possible', it's more a question of how utterly ridiculous it is to even show such a meaningless metric. Ignore.

  7. Really like what you have done with a home based computer. Once upon a time far in the distant past I was an Oceanographer, so I can appreciate how much time and effort you have put into completing this task. Watching the SST closely and awaiting the results from Rapid's latest sail. Interesting and uncertain times ahead.

  8. So, broad continuity continues with overall themes (milder start to season; potential switch to colder/blocked 2nd half), but do bear in mind - as I was at pains to stress this evening when discussing this stuff on-air - that it's only 13 October; still much water to run under the bridge; plus the Seasonal Team at Exeter are yet to summarise the current output into public domain for D-J-F probabilistic purposes. The difficulty into 2nd half of winter is compounded, of course, by the fact that even a strong SSW signal yields only circa 2 weeks reliable lead time in GS5 - something no seasonal f

  10. Unless you're reading a different report to me, it lays no criticism on Russia at all. Moreover it says the missile was fired from a 320sq km area of Eastern Ukraine - some of which was under the control of the Ukrainian army, some units of which were armed with Buk missiles. I appreciate that the West decided guilt long before the inquiry bagan. I'm disappointed that people choose to ignore the report and continue their long held pre-determined position.

  11. I strongly suspect the chap who fired the missile has long since had a bullet put in his head to keep him quiet. Also lets not be under any illusions over Russia being stubborn or bad. The morally sanctimonious west has been involved in just as many, if not more interference and arms supply that has killed innocent civilians. Putin is a very intelligent man, regardless of his morals, and he wouldn't have sanctioned the killing of foreigners in a civilian plane. The people who pushed the trigger were most likely ignorant separatists who couldn't tell their bottom from their elbow and just decid

No policies, constructive or otherwise that are of any use either to Scotland or the RUk. Holyrood needs decent opposition to hold decision making to account. There are major changes to budgets on the way and it will be painful, how the pain is distributed and mitigated is vitally important. All the opposition parties need to be on the ball if Scotland is to get the very best deal it possibly can. Of course, I see Indy as the absolute best deal but fo

  40. After Pakistan declared at 523-8, notable mention to Stokes who took 4 wickets. Also the other seamers were economical as had even 2 of them gone for runs we'd have conceded over 600. Then Cook and Moeen negotiated the first hurdle which was to survive until the end of the day. (cough) Bat all day for the next 2 days, score 650 and put Pak under pressure (cough)

  41. The fascinating thing about long range forecasting at this point is that truthfully there is nobody in a position to advise or correct anybody else. Mind you, if somebody said "this pattern is screaming out loud the coldest winter on record in Oregon" then I think maybe that would be subject to a large chorus of derisive hooting. I often wonder what would happen to the weather interest community if there came a time when reliable seasonal forecasting became available. I mean, there aren't many ocean tide forums are there?

  46. Animal abuse and torture should be taken more seriously! Harming animals is bad enough, but it is also the first signs that the individual may inflict the same cruelty on humans. When this happens, the individual is then dealt with properly, but intervention should take place sooner, as it is too little too late!
