  1. So winter might be over if the charts are to be believed. I got the impression from the 18z GFS that it was low pressure followed by a ridge Sly winds toppler rinse and repeat. Not sure what to think other than the SSW got the wrong continent and it isn't happening for us this year.
  2. I love your charts Knocker! It does indeed look like a similar setup to last winter (Nov, Dec, Jan). When the jet was having a Tango! It does look very wintry over the next few weeks at times. Every chart is pointing towards that trend.
  3. Altnaharra I reckon .. -15C by the end of the night. Winds decreasing.
  4. All roads lead to cold. . NW then NE. We should rename the thread . The hunt for mild .. it's gonna be a long time before we see double figures again.
  5. Good effort! METO all the way. (PS I live on Lewis too)
  6. What happened to the beast from the east????I've been away from the models 36hrs???
  7. I thought it was all in fine balance anyway with some uncertainty caused by this US storm?
  8. Not exactly a mild transition either with a run of cool NWlys
  9. I think so too Blasty. And because of it It looks like it will be a polar maritime direction. Don't get me wrong western areas will get snow. But realistically the beast is unlikely.
  10. Looks very interesting modelling that ties in with the SSW and the teleconnections forecasts. Has the GFS finally got a grip on the cold scenarios or is it leading us up the garden path (again)?
  11. That 12z GFS is sniffing something wintry with Nly outbreaks in 10days time. I am sure of it. Will it vanish in the next few runs or will it stay?
  12. Longer range modelling all pointing towards SSW influenced pattern. Blocking to our NW low pressure to our east and NE. Nly outbreaks in abundance. Ok, it's not the beast from the east, but it will certainly be very cold and snowy for coastal areas with some outbreaks of snow for more inland areas at times. The beast from the east last Feb brought us Zilch snow to Western Scotland. Dry and cold Easterly winds. So it's our turn!
  13. That's a massive area of high pressure over the UK . (1044mb) Now if we get zonal winds reversal, that blocking high pressure sits in the Atlantic, bringing us very cold air. Plausible surely?
  14. GFS long way off Fl , zonality cut off and Easterly ensues. One to define watch.
  15. I am not so sure the High will hang on like a limpet. The ensembles are telling a very different story. Trend is the friend. High pressure eroded away allowing the cold in. The 850s suggest a gradual decrease in temps as the process continues. It is a waiting game. A significant SSW has taken place, zonal winds expect to reverse. I would imagine it will be a Nly first then Easterly or NE
  16. Ive seen the GFS do this so many times before the Effects the a SsW takes place, goes back to manufacturing reset state in FL. Fear not.
  17. Classic omega block developing on that run. The models are sniffing at something.
