  1. I have never seen anything like that before, when the sky turned green I knew something was coming but didnโ€™t expect that! Multiple CGโ€™s and the ground is white over with hail, temperature has is also dropped to just 4C. Absolutely insane!

  2. Another quiet day in here. Models firming up on a cold unsettled outlook for the foreseeable, UK firmly locked on the cold side of the jet, with trough squeezed into the UK on a NW-SE trajectory thanks to a highly amplified pattern, heights to our west and east. Lots of cold rain ahead, perhaps some white stuff for highest northern ground.

  4. Yh one of the best Supercell radar representations of the year on that Bridlington Storm Nathan was on earlier and having seen some of the shots unedited on the back of his camera on his live stream they will be worth the wait. Interesting 2nd cell gone up probably on its outflow to its South showing interesting radar returns as well and all this with temps on the 40s F ๐Ÿ˜… North is the place to be nowadays been Banging that drum for the last few years and so it continues

  5. It does look ๐Ÿ‘€ like an increasingly fine weekend to come, especially by Sunday but certainly on the cool side with a risk of overnight ground frosts in rural areas, particularly further north..but looking into low res, things could become very interesting to say the least, indeed the cfs shows some insane / brutal cold at times during the months ahead..just for fun at this stage though but at least Iโ€™m trying to bring a bit of interest back to the model output discussion since itโ€™s been dead as a dodo today!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. What an amazing chart in contrasts. Negative phase in the extreme coming up- bulls eye -The British Isles. Probably means lots of rain and depressed temps for much of NW Europe. C

  13. Chilly at -0.7C - first air frost Thick freezing fog too - driving this morning on untreated roads was fun and who doesn't put their headlights on when visibility is less than 50m? Here's the same shot with two hours between in the garden. The first at that low of -0.7C and the second just now at +1.7C.

  14. Very impressive cold this morning in northern Scotland -5.0C in Altnaharra this smashed the former monthly record low at site by 1.5C from 1993 - also it was coldest September night in UK since 1986.

  17. Half an inch of hail from that storm over my folks house in Sproatley close to Hull. Just heavy rain here.

  18. I did notice the rotation in the storm also, can still hear the thunder now. It was actually scary driving through it because I thought the windscreen was about to smash! Itโ€™s the closest I have seen to a supercell for many years anyhow.

  19. I'm about to go for my flu jab, which is being dispensed in the surgery car park as a drive through exercise. I've been told to wear a short sleeved shirt to make delivering the jab easier. What are they going to do? Dart me as I drive past? Oh, and it's currently 12.0 deg.C, and I drive a canvas top land rover. Perfect short sleeve shirt weather. Still, at least it's sunny.

  22. Typical, just as I come up to Blackpool!!! Anyhow, can see interesting clouds out NW in the Irish Sea, a layer with a distinct lower layer (dead centre in pic), just where the white is on the radar.

  24. Some seasonal models have it shifted towards west, like UKMO and it was also mentioned by @Snowy Hibbo in his initial winter blog. Right now of course it is very much like EP La Nina without doubt, as you can see on my attached images comparing current SST with both type of Ninas. @sebastiaan1973 intriguing stuff with the chaotic QBO,up for grabs Nina strength and positioning, IOD neither here or there,extra aerosol from wildfires in upper atomosphere, new solar cycle beginning which should correlate with more blocking also waters of the east coast of USA have cooled - another good news I thin

  25. Well so much for my thought yesterday that sunny mornings might now be behind us. Not a cloud in the sky and the front of the house is bathed in the brightest sunlight. A real pleasure to get out of bed this morning. Temperature currently 4.4 deg.C after an overnight minimum of 0.4 deg.C at 05:29, relative humidity of 95%, no wind, pressure at 994.9 hPa adjusted, no rain in the last 24 hours.

  26. A quick look at the start of October, only 7 days away now, and these three models all agree that we should expect an unsettled spell with low pressure dominating although theyโ€™re not completely in agreement about the depth and position of the main feature...... 500s 850s ECM GFS GEM This could still go either way - the low pressure system could weaken, or intensify (especially if the GFS gets its way!). Will we have to endure some severe Autumn storms this year?

  27. A cool but sunny morning here. It clouded over a bit in the afternoon and there have been a few showers coming in from the NE. Enough gaps in the cloud to give a gorgeous sunset.

  39. https://twitter.com/MattHugo81/status/1308668994094796800 East based #LaNina really getting going now, all eyes on this as one of the 'drivers' for potential influences on the winter pattern, a weak to moderate Nina potentially aiding in the risk of colder weather early in the winter. Some signs for a -ve IOD getting going too...

  40. Some form of Ural high pressure/blocking is still evident in the extended forecast period, would be great if it can persist as long as possible as according to recent study it is much better correlated with NAO blocking in Dec/Jan then Siberian snow cover extend. See abstract of study and extended GEFS anomaly
