  1. At this point looking at current charts and reading chatter on weather sites etc ,next week is looking cold to start then one big question mark as to where we go after next wednesday . Todays Met office update could throw a few clues in as to what they see that we dont ,and tonights main players will i,m sure be eagerly watched perhaps from behind the firniture ,with my dog wagging his tail ,one wag for atlantic dross six wags for cold continental ,Great posts today ,cheers gang .
  2. Will current gfs run show increasing high pressure over scandy ,steady as she goes ,but wont be staying up to find out ,going to check up tomorrow after mornings runs but looks interesting ,cheers .
  3. Well got my digging up garden done ,even had a sausage bap with pickle ,lovely day weatherwise ,still quite a few ladybirds around , suppose make the most of this settled weather as it looks a bit chilly and unsettled in short outlook .
  4. Just spent this morning digging garden ready for the winter ,realy great out there ,last night was good for some sky watching great clear sky ,we do have some interesting weather ahead ,lets hope this winter can deliver some interesting weather ,perhaps a nice mix to please all , just love it when a deep cover of snow is lit by a low sun , A quiet night with the stars twinkling and a stella up the wood shed
  5. Looking forward to some colder weather so I will just enjoy what mother nature is giving us .further outlook charts will change again come tomorrow and the day after too ,but I, m confident that it's going to be a very interesting period coming up ,upper Atmosphere vastly different than past years at this stage , Stella's all round ,whoops wrong one .
  6. Thanks for your contributions ,certainly some interesting times ahead , Great though that we dont know whats far ahead in this model output forum ,remember back in the 1980s getting charts posted to me from weather centre , big improvements of course these days but nice to know that every day see,s a new possibility . Great that we have probably the best forum around ,especially when you see some of the rubbish turned out on other outlets etc ,cheers .
  7. Same here on west mendip ,Lady birds about ,and bumble bees out and about certainly a great autumn day ,very misty and chilly out now though .
  8. Yes this Fim weather model looks good ,i simply typed in fim weather model . Its been a very interesting day today ,some action hopefully coming our way cheers .
  9. This fim model I looked up today ,looks interesting ,I put in fim on Google . Made interesting read .cheers .you need to type in Fim weather model .
  10. Looking at todays charts a cooling off generally still looks on the cards for next week ,but beyond day 7 i feel that we have many options .There is some chatter on forums about the Vortex getting its act together , which i,m sure will set hearts a racing But at this range and in this unusual pattern for october could be in many positions ,we could get a vortex set up in its usual home for us but high pressure also setting up in a favourable position that we get a good shot at some cold air . All very complex [as usual ] but i do feel that some interesting times are ahead for us Model watchers ,so with 13 weeks of winter still to come and 4 weeks of autumn left please dont get down beat ,will be interesting to see if ECM 9/10 day chart later maintains some sort of high pressure to our far west /n west ,we are not alone in this quiet almost Calm situation , across the pond things are similar but some models are now toying with some action setting up in about 10/15 days time ,Action will come but not untill Mother nature gets to work on our upper air patterns , looking forward to future discussions on the best forum for weather ,cheers Gang
  11. Thanks for posting Newberryone ,you are posting as you see it and as the professionals are seeing it .If further outlook charts come off its after this that we might All see colder weather i feel ,A Realy dross overcast drizzly day in my kneck of the woods bring on winter proper ,cheers.
  12. Yes frosty Gfs showing some interesting Charts into November , Looking forward to tonights ECM MET of updates as if its out there next week we should start to see some firming up ,but i do expect a bit of flipping from run to run .I,m eagerly awaiting todays 16 day update from Met office also ,although we dont get to see any of their charts for this range at least we can read between the lines .Interesting northern profile at the moment ,seems to be quiet across the Pond , lets hope any cold air bottling up can be ejected south somewhere ,but with us weather enthusiasts lets hope it arrives not too early , Interesting times ahead i feel ,I may watch tonights runs from behind Sofa With A Cool STella and sausage bap ,.
  13. Gfs certainly a good run for coldies , Ecm still hard to pin down after 144hrs but will wait for Met of update to think what their thinking is ,of course we dont get to see their later charts but we can read between the lines ,and there is some good signs available in other data , its a hard life for us but Meteorology is so enjoyable ,catch you all up later ,cheers .
  14. yes bbq this weekend ,Brilliant interesting charts currently something for us to get our teeth into , something i hope is lurking out there ,cheers gang
  15. Afternoon all ,just a quick reply to Faronstream question above ,If we have high pressure cells positioned favourably to our North far n /west or Scandy etc and they are persistant [staying in place for a good time that will bring us the cold temperatures ] .Areas of low pressure then tracking across say northern france will quite often bring us snowy conditions For some ,If an active low is positioned to our west weather fronts will push warmer air into the cold mix ,depending on Many synoptic situations it can be humid mild at certain heights in the atmosphere .Another way of looking at your question would be December 1962 Boxing day [mid evening in my kneck of the woods ] A large area of relatively mild air and steady moderate rain across southern britain was gradually being replaced by very cold air which undercut ,SNow turned very heavy with massive flakes [so some very mild conditions aloft ,eventually temperatures mixed more, so snow then became moderate in size ,the cold air came as a result of a ridge of high pressure moving west to our north ,i wont get to technical as you can read this all up easily on the Internet . Indeed most heavy falls of snow is a result of moist air battling colder dryer air ,also as a general rule winters with above average pressure to our north and lower than normal to our south [but many combinations ] Ps after this event it did turn briefly mild till 29/30 dec ,but thats another story and not Model output ralated ,catch you all up later ,hoping for some good charts tonight after this morning slight back track ,cheers .
  16. Morning Gang ,OK , charts currently are moving away from those of recent ,but i,m not looking too much past 144 hrs it could all swing back to what they were showing a couple of days ago . Certainly some interesting Data around and a different upper air profile in norther latitudes ,The roller coaster as started and i think we are going to get some wild swings ,many a colder spell as turned up after milder than normal weather ,thats Meteorology for you , off to get some Razor blades ,prozack and tidy up my pram ,catch you all up later .
  17. Great forum ,very interesting charts tonight ,current fax charts would cause a stir if later into the winter . We are looking at nothing disturbed over the coming week going by current data ,then we have the big carrot in the further outlook charts ,if it comes off and we can tap into some low temp ,and IF synoptics allow ,and it would need a block in place for a while But it's happened before so let's see what the charts look like in a weeks time ,interesting times ahead ,but watch out gang the charts aren't set in stone , cheers .
  18. Morning fellow posters ,charts still showing mostly settled weather conditions with some good weather for getting out and about ,next few days could become dank and a little wet for some but there after just quiet Mid autumn days with some sun in favoured locations and some fog and frost about . Looking at ECM there isa hint of high pressure setting up to our far north west but it will need more runs to convince me of this ,Gfs does show a large low moving to our far west in its later out put ,certainly upper air patterns a bit different this year across northern latitudes so i may this evening grab a STella ,and sit and relax and prepare my mind for the coming roller coaster season we are all heading towards ,cheers
  19. Well looking at current Data, its looking quiet and rather pleasant till Months end ,after that a possibility that we could see some typical november weather ,But although its great looking at GFS throwing some 528 dam at us or close to us i personally wont be getting excited quite yet ,[ bring on the stellas !!!! Frosty get the crayons out ] i,m looking forward to this upcoming winter ,on the best weather forum on the planet ,catch you all up later
  20. Any one for a sausage Bap ,STella ,and that first snow flake cheers gang

  21. Sorry about above post ,clicked on it yesterday to give reply then changed my mind and cant get rid of it . So thought i would send it blank to try to correct it ,PS chart watching now becoming more interesting ,cheers all .
  22. Rain arrived here ,very heavy at present, looking at radar Weymouth way looks like a good place for thunder ,could be other areas later looking at satellite coverage ,cheers .
  23. Good morning ,it does seem that high pressure in the outlook wants to be in a more northerly position ,to our west or to our north east ,The Atlantic breaking through this week end giving us some rain and showers then later next week it dies a death ,any further than 7 days i feel would be hard to call and of course at this time of year any positioning of high pressure could be very crucial to the weather at the surface , at least we have a different set up to previouse years and who knows !! could go in coldies favour ,but we are talking about weather ,certainly many months of interesting twists and turns ,cheers .
  24. we have a pair of wood pigeons which had two chicks back in the summer ,they survived and flew off ,they laid again and although two hatched only one survived . This was pushed from the nest about a week ago ,the surviving one is very big and fat and will probably leave soon ,another visitor to our garden over the last two weeks or so as been A humming bird hawk moth ,but now seems to have disappeared , local jack daws arrived on our roof this morning in a big group sounded like an army had arrived about 7.15 am ,cheers .
