  1. Broadsword calling Danny boy..come in coldies..are you receiving me..over?...whatever!. ๐Ÿ˜‰...for sure there are still a few cold perturbations on the 6z ..anyhoo, as I said before, if it warms up..good.. if we see another cold shot..good..Iโ€™m open to all eventualities! ๐Ÿค”..,or am I?..go figure! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

  2. I just wanted to wait until the Gfs updated this evening so I wouldn't have to edit this to include it.. Even though there has been a fair amount of model output changes over the last 24-48 hours.. not much I think has changed with the outlook since.. high pressure will move into much of the country by wednesday next week bringing dry weather back to Scotland and northern Ireland, although now the possibility of a few showers developing for England and Wales on Tuesday before it becomes mostly dry for all here. That high pressure still more likely to be positioned just to our e

  3. No need for that at all. The OP was simply pointing out something interesting on a chart.

  4. Well Iโ€™ve posted quite a few cold charts in recent times so I think itโ€™s only fair I post some warmer ones?...the GEFS 12z indicates the new month MAY bring some hints of the summer to come with a big warm up across France and perhaps southern u k? ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿคž โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. If only this were at Day 6, instead of 16!๐Ÿ˜ Still, it might be enough to spark some interest from the Daily Excess: Britain to swelter, as temperatures are set to rival those found on the surface of Venus!๐Ÿ”ฅ

  7. Ok..cards on the table, longer term GEFS 0z mean May seem rather bland to some, this might astonish you..yes Iโ€™m a die-hard coldie in winter and most of spring but Lordy Lordy..when we see our first major warm up into the low / mid / upper 20โ€™s Celsius..nobody will be happier than me!!!..fingers crossed for heatwaves, plumes..thunderstorms..hot sun..Iโ€™m ready!!!..when there is no further hope of a late sting from the Arctic! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Maybe some tentative signs that the warmth might be about to escape its shackles, but I'm not going to get excited just yet:๐Ÿค” I guess the 00Z GEFS temperature ensembles broadly agree with that guess? It's about time!๐Ÿป

  9. Another lovely day, with a max of 14.9c. As with previous days, a nagging moderate to gusty SE wind in the afternoon making things feel cooler. Sun definitely has some strength in it now as the family all have a touch of sunburn after been outside for most of the last few days. Bit more in the way of cloud today, a sign of the change coming in... Went over to Stonehaven for a visit, that curtailed quickly due to the lack of parking and crowds everywhere with little social distancing compliance. It's a bit worrying how many people seem to think that the vaccine is the

  10. I think that is a little unfair. This thread does tend to look to the future. Iโ€™ve mentioned the build up of heat that @Minus 10 is referring to a couple of times too, it could well become important down the line. We will see...meanwhile more anticyclonic weather with the high in the wrong place for any warmth in the rest of April.

  13. Agreed, just had a look ๐Ÿ‘€ through the 12z ensembles and there are many, indeed most showing below average temperatures, even a few very unseasonably cold members....this is one coldie who would like to see some plume potential now!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜‰...thatโ€™s probably the end of my sacra membership now..lol.. ๐Ÿ˜น

  14. GFS 12z ensembles now looking much cooler than previous runs, though the OP is an outlier. Seems like it can't make up its mind whether to go mild or cool. Note that this would most likely give us the coldest April since 1989.

  15. Some hill snow too by the looks of it if that low where to happen as shown, the end of the Gfs update although likely to change ofcourse, does offer something warmer returning just as general cluster has noted.๐Ÿ™‚

  17. 15.7c todayโ€™s max... felt warmer in sunshine before high cloud came in... still not chilly breeze of yesterday... apple/pear/plum trees and blackcurrent/raspberry bushes all in blossom smelling amazing... cherries a little behind this year... hopefully 17-18c tomorrow and wall to wall blue skies... Having Cajun and bourbon tomahawk steak with proper crispy roasties, mini Yorkies and large cut coleslaw

  18. Tomorrow looking really nice. Possibly up to 17C, mostly sunny and no wind. Looking further ahead and we pick up an easterly influence from Wednesday lasting into the weekend but this shouldn't be cold. The continent starting to warm up now.

  20. Well at Day 10, it's still a 'waiting game': once the deep cold dissipates, we'll be open to attack from both the SE and SW? But I do feel that, as far as any real heat is concerned, the wait may be longer than many of us might hope for?๐Ÿค”

  21. Took the opportunity of the relaxation in restrictions to get out and about in the Sidlaws yesterday. Beautiful day and felt warm if you could get out of the chilly breeze. Leuchars figured for April so far show its been very dry (just 0.2mm of rainfall), cold (mean is -3.1c below average) and sunny (162 hours so far).

  23. A quick look at the day 10 respective mean charts from the GEFS 6z / ECM 0z..they both share the feature of being benign under generally anticyclonic or at least ridge conditions!...so at the surface, by day would appear to be pleasant for much of the next 10 days plus?..anyway...I realise even posting at this particular moment in time could appear disrespectful to the Duke of Edinburghโ€™s Funeral..but thatโ€™s not the case, Iโ€™m a royalist and am watching it on tv with countless millions across the globe!..R.I.P ๐Ÿ˜ž

  24. The warm air to the south is being constantly squeezed further south by the bullyboy hp to the north on the GFS 12z run. allowing a cold trough/lp to form over us.. We may get some (cold) rain out of this but it wont be very nice. Better make the most out of the next couple of days if this run is anything to go by. Today felt very nice in the sun, almost summer like ๐Ÿ˜Ž. Maybe it will all change by the 18z.........or the 0z.๐Ÿ˜†

  25. Bright rather than wall-to-wall sunshine here this afternoon and barometer starting to drop slowly. Forecast seems to be a continuation of the dry weather but colder from midweek.

  26. Radar says green, but no rain to be seen... Narrowly missed out on air frost with a low of 0.2ยฐC. Looks like a dull day, no wind.

  27. Well the ECM0z is at odds with GFS0z ...no surprise there. Day 8 One staying cool/cold while the other warming up. ECM0Z mean day 8 and GEFS ens Current signal from ecm is to stay cool/cold and while gfs op is near top of pack lets hope it is nearer the mark regarding a warm up. Otherwise we will have to continue to rely on the daily increasing strength of the sun. Also a predominately dry prospect still with continual chance of frost. Not the best outlook for gardeners/growers...however we shall see......

  28. Got me thinking when was the last time the region had a really wet April and May? Believe it or not, it was in 1993. We've had one of the two months as really wet and the other being wettish but both months being really wet, you have to go back to 1993.

  30. Took dog to beach about an hour ago for a clean up after she wallowed in a muddy puddle.Temperature had risen to 16c this afternoon and with a southerly wind the wind was offshore so a beach walk was very pleasant. Not many folks about by midsummer I am sure it will be different. Bramble thought it was great.

  31. Cold outside in pub garden even when sun highest in the sky, and zero cloud. Very unseasonal for last half of April. UKMO T144 hangs that low in the Atlantic, which might draw up some warmer air, but still settled and dry: GFS has the low too and by T168 it isnโ€™t coming our way: With virtually no polar vortex in the usual place over Greenland all winter, the Atlantic doesnโ€™t seem to have anything in it at all now - it has been summer synoptics, you could argue, for most of winter, for the UK, and it would be odd if that changed. So forget the lows, our weather se

  32. I donโ€™t think there would be too many complaints if the Gfs 6z operational verified?..itโ€™s showing temperatures eventually rising to very respectable levels for the time of year as well as high pressure domination with plenty of sunshine..I appreciate there are concerns with how dry this month is becoming across England in particular but thereโ€™s nothing we can do about that!...Iโ€™m just commenting on the run and itโ€™s looking rather good for the most part!.. ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿคž ๐Ÿ˜‰ โ˜€๏ธ โ›…๏ธ

  37. Yes back to back very wet April's and May's bit of an anomaly. 2012 nearly, but the last third of May was very dry warm and sunny, a brief respite in an otherwise exceptionally wet 4 month period.

  38. Nice early round of golf earlier at Inchmarlo just outside Banchory. Chilly start but warmed up nicely. Still on winter greens and tees as apparently the course soil temp is still too low to promote much in the way of growth. Course looking bare still and distinct lack of greenery for the time of year.

  43. Ah, that would explain why the highest daily max, shown on the BBC app, during the next 14-days, is only a measly 12C!๐Ÿฅถ๐Ÿ˜ And that reminds me: the two most horrendous summers -- temperature-wise -- I can recall, were 1972 and 1993; I don't want to see a repeat of either of them!๐Ÿ˜ฑ

  44. Cloudier day in prospect but yet again dry. Another week ahead with possibly no rain featured. April and May most likely months to bring prolonged dry weather here, most settled and therefore probably best time to visit for outdoor activities, not probably, definitely!

  49. ECM clusters T192 to T240: It is difficult from this to see where the warm up comes from in the next 10 days or so. High pressure in touching distance of the UK on all but cluster 2 which looks a bit out with other models. But the high really isnโ€™t in a good position. So more shivering in pub gardens to come, but at least it will probably be dry for most. The T264+ has only one cluster, so does not add anything useful.
