    GFS looking autumnal out in the realms of fantasy. I likey very much.

    Glad to see no sign of any hot/very hot conditions returning anytime soon to UK shores on any of the models in the reliable time frame. Any return to hot conditions are at in the least 7 days away and even that is overly generous. The meto lastest update seems to have tempered return to hot conditions too. Looking forward to some fresher conditions this weekend, with some wind and rain :-).
  3. ECM looking good to bring some fresher cooler temps in to the UK from Sat onwards. GFS not dissimilar. FI yes but not at far reaches. Only worry is that the ridge would be waiting in the wings to build back in.
  4. Anomaly charts only tell you where lower pressure is in relation to higher pressure and vice versa, they don't tell you exactly where the LP or HP is going to set up. 50/100 miles is going to make a lot of difference to weather on the ground in these situations. I believe they also do not get it right all of the time (a 70% success rate maybe?)
  5. Only 7 days away?, well into FI is 168 hours! Latest METEO daytime temps (FROM THEIR WEBSITE) for London next week up until Thurs are Mon 29c Tues 28c Weds 27c Thurs 29c Not anything notable there. It is more notable how long the nice weather has been going on rather than for how hot the temperatures have been, and it looks like continuing like that for the foreseeable. And there is no getting away from the LP being modelled closer and closer to the UK in the reliable time frame.
  6. Looks like the real extreme heat is being pushed back again, and gradually the LP is getting closer to the UK.
  7. The real hot temps +30c seem to be getting pushed further back. First, it was the beginning of next week, then it was mid-week, now it's the end of next week. I certainly wouldn't put all my money on very hot temps next week and would be inclined to have a small wager on LP influencing our weather more and more IMO. We shall see though.

    Summer 2018 - Moans, Ramps, Chat etc

    OMG the summer just goes on and on, Can't remember the last time it was cold. Hoping a long hot summer will turn into a cold autumn and winter, with plenty of wind/rain storms. I shall remain positive that the heat will disappear soon and we will have some more mobile weather.

    This is the most uninteresting spell of weather I have had to endure for god knows how long. Give me autumn wind and rain anyday.

    Model output discussion - here comes the beast!

    I keep waking up every morning expecting the models to have downgraded, and an uncle Barty to be showing, but nope they just keep getting better and better. This really is the stuff weather dreams are made of. GFS, UKMO, ECM you are legends (at least whilst you are showing what I want )

    The crazy thing is that these charts are actually within the semi-reliable time frame. And BREATHE........

    Surely if all these crazy charts verify it will make 2010 look like a damp squib?

    I must admit I love reading the mod thread when it kicks off in there. It brings so many laughs.
