    Using the 500 mb anomaly charts, the 3 I use, are all in close agreement, it would suggest a NW-SE split with the most disturbed weather the further north and west one live. Less so for the SE corner but even here the upper air pattern suggests rain and wind here now and then. My notes this morning Ec-gfs show ridging e/ne with major trough around 30 w; Noaa is also similar perhaps 25 w for trough So all 3 now appear settled on this, the flow is strong away from se across atlantic , with the flow looking like right entrance, close to us- and left exit close to nw uk, some deep surface depressions seem likely in the 6-10, extending into the 8-14 as that shows a similar idea. http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/predictions/814day/500mb.php http://mp1.met.psu.edu/~fxg1/ECMWF_0z/hgtcomp.html

    It's now looking increasingly likely that towards the weekend after next unseasonal warmth will be the order of the day, this possibility evident from the models for some time now. First GFS T240: GEM take interesting with this 16C uppers over Shetland: Here's the FV3 at T240: that heat's gone a bit north no? ECM at same time: And apropos of nothing, today the CFS offers this at T1794: Happy days all round.

    Assuming winter CET is distributed normally (it's not) then the coldest winter 1684 with a standard deviation of over 3.5 has a less than 1 in 2149 chance of occurring. The 3rd coldest 1962/3 is 3SD which has a chance of 1 in 370.

    Short/medium term diagnostics. Although 'no notable' large scale differences.... The eye openers are there 'early on'.. A last gasp of early autumnal warmth aiding in the forward frontal onset of winter...perhaps?!.. A notable large lobe vortex push to an easterly caption!.. And although even @10hpa strat there is nothing of significance...at this point the overal conscientious is there!!.. Also the aiming/conversition of mid'-latt blocking steps are falling on exactions. An alarming-punch of large mass waa keen for punch @mainland/mass eastern quad euro... All this without looking @the shenanigans on the pacific side of northern hem-top global..... Things winding up now...and decipher/watchings becoming ever more interesting..... The ride has opened!!!!

    The overriding theme of a N/S split across the UK within the current pattern continues, albeit with a brief interruption this weekend.. Worth noting at the end of the short range is the displacement of the Canadian vortex into the north west Atlantic as illustrated by last evening’s EPS. Back to the here and now and the 500mb and surface analysis at midnight So following on from a post last evening the developing low to the west will continue to deepen and track NNE pushing the associated warm front north east across the north of the UK. The rain from this, currently down western Scotland, will do the same. So wet and quite windy here after a cool and clear start in the east, but the further south is in the warm sectors so fairly cloudy with perhaps some patchy drizzle early on in the west but where the cloud breaks it will be quite warm The passage of the warm front will result in a fairly cloudy and mild night in most areas although the cloud could well break further south and here Thursday will develop into a warm day with light winds. But the aforementioned low is still deepening over Iceland and the waving cold front is in close proximity to Scotland so again it will be wet and windy here and as the front tracks south east the rain and freshening wind will do the same during the day The front will continue to edge south overnight and through Friday as the low to the north continues on it's travel, with patchy rain accompanying it, leaving clearer showery conditions in it's wake. Quite a marked temp contrast either side of the front with temps above average in the south. By Saturday the brief hiatus mentioned at the beginning is underway with an upper trough sinking south and a wave forming on the front which tracks into Biscay bringing some wet and windy weather to Wales and the south of England. And there is some quite cold air behind the front as the ridge builds in from the south west. The rain will clear the south overnight and after a cold start with a frost in many places Sunday will be a sunny and cool day but by late afternoon the next frontal system will bring freshening winds and some rain to the north west. And the NH profile at T120 keeping in mind the opening comment.

    Talk of warm settled weather on here .... but surely not.... my copy of the Express tells me that Britain is going to endure 14 days of Ferocious Weather thanks to a powerful cyclone called Leslie thats hurtling across the Atlantic... Any guesses as to what’s wrong here ?

    Meteociel doesn't forecasting anything, it just presents the output from various NWP models. The link is just showing the output from the latest GFS run which is operated by NCEP in the US. 6/4 for the coldest winter on record is ludicrously short. 500 to 1 would be closer. The whole article is a joke. If El Nino caused cold winters in the UK, we'd be buried every few years.

    Massive westerly wind burst occuring over the central and east pacific over the next week (one of the strongest on record i imagine). I would look to significant ridging to the north and east developing in the final half of October.

    What a fantastic performance from "our boys". A very disappointing one, from the U.S.A!! They seemed a very disparate, indeed desperate bunch, at times!! Would suggest that Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson, should perform their very amusing "rap parody", that they recorded with fellow Tour Pro's, Ben Crane and Hunter Mahan, to cheer up their U.S. team mates. See video, below: A few Ladies from the European Tour, responded in like. See video, below: Think Europe win again, what say you? Really not sure about Bubba, in that "get-up!!" That was my first attempt at "hosting" a Matchplay event. As I stated at the start of the thread, was concerned about the quick turnaround in matches after the Morning Sessions, which prevented me including the predicting of the Afternoon Fourballs, in the Competition. I think it worked really well, on the whole and I really enjoyed, hosting it. I hope you all enjoyed, entering!! If there's enough interest, would like to "host" a "Fantasy" Competition on the World Cup of Golf, which will be held at the Metropolitan Golf Club, Melbourne, Australia, 22nd-25th November. I can virtually host it, while I'm on my virtual trip!! Please let me know if you're interested, in entering. Anyway, onwards and upwards!! Off to continue the Champions League Competition and Autumn "Fantasy" Racing. Regards. Tom.

    I think a word of thanks is once again due in here k. To anyone new to meteorology I would recommend that you read this part of Net Weather. The mix of charts, Fax, rainfall, temperature etc with hardly any personal bias and interpretation is a model (excuse the pun). Maybe the team could make some suggestion in the main thread for new folk to make their way on to this thread. I do so hope that once winter starts that this thread is kept free of the unpleasantness that does occur at times when some folk get frustrated with not getting the weather they hoped for and maybe they felt the models were showing.

    Not much happening this evening and overnight with the main low over Iceland the UK resides in the broad warm sector thus a mainly cloudy and mild night with perhaps some breaks in eastern regions. But with a couple of fronts in close proximity some bits and bobs of rain, mainly in the north west but also down western regions further south. And breezier the further north you trek from the Midlands.

    Depends where you are in southern UK as here in South Wales, my weather station recorded 130.7mm in just a few days from the 3 'named storms' 2 weeks ago and also 75.8mm fell in just one day in the middle of August, so recently it's been a case of 'plenty of dry weather but when it rains, it rains'

    Well what can I say, it's not often, I win one of my own Competitions!! Congratulations to J10 for being a gallant runner-up. Had I known J10 was a Golf fan, would have sent him an invite, into the other "Fantasy" Golf Competitions I've hosted, this season. I certainly will from now on. J10's entry was clear, concise and to the "tee". (Sorry, no pun intended but he had cottoned onto the fact, you needed to predict both morning Foursomes plus all the Singles matches.) A very solid performance from PHIL_NW and had he been able to post up his predictions for the first day Foursomes, may well have pinches 2nd place, from J10. To those entrants, that finished at the bottom of the table, it's important to make sure you read the Format and fully understand, all the elements of the Competition. Fortunately, no entry fees were paid and no prize money, was at stake!! In a short while, I'll post up more details of possible "Fantasy" Golf Competitions, I'd like to "host". A big thanks to everyone, for participating!! Regards, Tom.

    ECM clusters this morning showing a deep Atlantic trough parked out to the west of the UK, NW/SE split, though it could be fairly mild to warm with a southerly feed: By day 12 there is a split of outcomes, though still favouring the SE for the best of conditions: At day 15 the ridge is in the largest cluster, though by no means conclusive: The GFS ensembles also look fairly dry for the majority out to day 10, with the pressure mean reasonable too. Parts of the SE seeing little or no rainfall. Only the NW of Scotland really taking a bit hit closer to those lows and the track of the jetstream.
