  1. Thanks jules, well I do not think your post is irrelevant . Always interesting. This forum is read quite widely abroad . C

  2. ECM Day 9 > 10 continues to show promise with some mediocre heights in situ to the North & some atlantic ridging. At the very least perhaps some snow for Ireland & the west day 10.

  3. Just for fun folks, but how often this winter have we seen a snow chart showing literally countrywide snow!! Answer we ain't... Yes perhaps it's a little OTT, but it's ruddy great to see all the same... I may frame it. Would be superb for us all to see a little of the white stuff now... We have been punished for long enough. ?

  4. Shades of Jan 1984 cold zonality in the medium range of the models from early next week, more so the north, where it could be quite snowy at times. Blizzards conditions possible over higher ground, given gales are likely at times. All dependent on whether the jet sinks south enough. 500mb height forecast to become quite low (denoted by the purples on the 500mb/slp charts) as will 850mb height, so even though 850mb temp looks nothing special at -5 to -7c, the height of the 850mb level will be lower than normal. This means a snowflake will have less distance to melt below that level.

  5. 18Z GFS has one of the tighest gradient "direct hits" I've ever seen.

  6. Good agreement on a wild spell of weather but differences emerge towards day ten . The GFS might have the colder uppers and that raging storm but after that its NH picture at day ten is awful for cold . The ECM has less excitement or as the case might be less to fear depending on whether you like having your roof blown off ! But at day ten is much better than the GFS in terms of the PV and colder prospects going forward . You can generally correlate cold prospects in a more zonal pattern with one look at the PV set up and any associated wedges of heights to the north and

  10. I think it’s very likely a deep low will track ene towards the UK . However pinning down the detail this far out is impossible . So much depends on a variety of factors . The wedge of heights towards the n/ ne how much forcing is placed on the jet . The point at which the weakish shortwave engages those low heights in the west Atlantic and the associated much colder upper air and the subsequent rapid deepening of that . If the low hits the UK , the northern flank of that could see some snow , more especially with elevation . Generally the deeper the low the more it will try and

  14. Weather models have updated their scale to +10 ? ? ? Saturdays ECM HRES AO was +8.1 ? Todays number NAO +6 AO. +7 These values are in a total league of their own 1990 the mecca of +AO & a cold strat only reached +5.9. 2020 is the new bench mark of extremes. Lets hope 2021 is at the other end of the extreme scale!

  16. Indeed the bigger the balloon the louder the bang when it pops. also just to add i have Snaw falling right now.. didnt see that coming in any of the model output so just goes to show that the models do not see everything and surprises do happen.

  17. Further to my post above.. They'll be small lows / waves popping up from the parent low if the mid-range charts come to fruition. Certainly an interesting period of weather for those of us who are all-rounders. ?

  19. One more post just to illustrate how extreme the 18Z GFS run is. Here is comparison to the GFS on the day of the 2014 storm which produced a wind gust of 159 kph at Shannon Airport, the highest recorded there since 1961. Today's 18Z GFS on the right... vs

  20. Well the fun all seems to start properly next Monday, so here's the ECM at T168: Pretty much as all the other models at this point, there is consistency also about the T850s at this time T168 as far as they impact the UK: GFS the coldest, but all of this will probably be marginal at best for snow at lower levels, if the pattern persists, then the shorter range models may help, and with wind strength too, looks a wild period of weather throughout next week whatever! I wonder if there is a chance the trop vortex might be about to blow itself to bits with this ons

  24. The positive AAM anomalies are resuming in the extratropics (at a similar latitude to the UK), which is partially behind the continued and now reinforced +NAO flow. In order for the UK winter pattern to be changed, we need those tropical +AAM transports to move north and -AAM deposits establish close to the poles to help to dislodge the strong tropospheric polar vortex. Looking at the top chart’s upward trend, which shows a strengthening stratospheric polar vortex, we are running out of options, except looking towards a consistent zonal outlook. However later in February may be

  31. I remember a spell of heavy wet snow giving a layer of slush from a cold westerly flow one evening that month living in Kent, it became ingrained in my mind even though I was young, as it was an unusual direction to get snow from. Anyway, less likely this time round. Long way off I know, but given an uninterrupted WNWly flow from NE Canada to southern Greenland, 00z EC shows how it could be quite snowy Tuesday next week in exposed western areas, Ireland/ N. Ireland, western Scotland, west Wales and NW England.

  32. Yes, that is what I've been musing last day or two. There seems to be an implicit assumption that if there is to be a sting in the tail of this abysmal winter, it would have to come via events in the strat...well there is no sign of that in the immediate or even medium future. But there have been a couple of interesting signs that the trop vortex might destabilise after next week's shenanigans, two examples from GFS FI which I posted yesterday: ECM T240 headed that way? Way, way to soon to tell, but it is something to watch. But much interest, first, in next weeks stormines

  34. The GFS storm given its depth and track would effect a huge amount of people and is really a horror show. Although as a wind phobic that’s really a personal point . I know some people love to see these storms .

  35. I was wondering that too Mike, with the PV ramped to the max when it does finally fall apart could there be unusual repercussions down the line? Perhaps a case of the 'harder they come.....'.

  38. UKMO and GFS at 144 A brutal period of weather coming up, that lump of PV is looking rather angry and has its sights on the UK and Ireland. Those at elevation, particularly in Scotland could be getting buried in the white stuff, but also losing their roofs!

Roll on this Dry, hot summers could become 'norm' in Scotland WWW.BBC.CO.UK Researchers say the country should prepare for more summers like 2018, with temperatures of about 30C.

Just ordered a top up of the oil tank, the current price is 42.9p a litre. i asked how come it's that low and the reply was " it's the lock down in China" if you use oil for heating maybe a good time to book a top up.. oh yeah the weather. sunny windy and some place between cold and mild, not sure what you call that..

  47. Yep definitely, just need to see it count down without too many drastic changes, if I remember correctly, the spell in mid January 2018 counted down pretty consistently from a reasonable distance away when it started to show on the models. The chart for Monday coming is relatively similar to the chart from the day that I put those photos up from earlier on, 850's very similar also. This is the GFS chart for Monday coming And this is the chart for 16th of January 2018 And I'll throw this in just for fun for this coming Monday...
