    Could be 3 years in a row regarding warm weather at Halloween, agreed it's all getting a bit tedious now. The continuation of heat and warmth over Spain/Portugal and Iberia seems relentless...surely it must end soon?
  2. Sunshine levels October 2017

    Little sunshine here in the south east, first week not to bad and a couple of days ago when we had that warm spell but generally pretty cloudy and last couple of days has been miserable. Too much Tm air about I'm afraid which has led to largely cloudy nights with only a minima of 8.0 here. It's going to be a long miserable sunless winter if this pattern continues.

    As Walsall posted it appears on the graphics with the UK and 99% of the time they are not mentioned and a good percentage of our weather comes from generally that direction, only as they have a dramatic low pressure on their 'doorstep' are the Beeb forced to mention Ireland over the last day. Even my dad has noticed this over previous years.

    What is it with the BBC and Ireland?...they never even mention them in the slightest in any of the forecasts, more likely to hear about France or Holland. The above graphic just goes to prove that, what gust will they get there? (whatever it is the Beeb couldn't care less).

    Unreal the high pressure over the Azores through Iberia and into the rest of Europe...when will this pattern end?, oh I forgot we had that 2 weeks or so at the start of September which brought about a bit more amplification - that must be our lot for the rest of the year then!
  6. Model Moans, Ramps and Banter

    Ridiculous synoptics...now everything wants to come up from Spain and in 9/10 days time thereafter. It's either that or an Atlantic borefest with little decently cool Pm air to be seen. Apparently Polar Maritime air mass is the most common over the British Isles - really !?!
  7. On the flip side I've seen a few abysmal runs (particularly on the 0z 9 month) - one theme that seems to be occurring most is HP close to the UK through November/December but in the wrong place i.e. near to the south east, and when a scandy high does form undercutting doesn't happen and we generally end up in a southerly. Oh well all a bit of fun on that model...

    Spot the half decent Pm air mass (or anything from a northerly point) over the last couple of days, in fact what we're looking at presently could quite easily be charts straight out of December/January of the last few winters. Looks like we're heading straight into a warm spell in a few days time.
  9. Nice read there Nick for Laymans like myself - I think it could be 4 winters though! 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16 and last winter have all been poor or relatively poor...
  10. There were some great runs last year on the CFS around November time for some screaming easterlies in January and then if by magic in December piff paff poof (not sexist) they were gone!

    Flat flat flat seems to be the run of things ever since the beginning of June, sometimes influenced by the heights over the continent (June) and sometimes by the depressions moving west to east to the north (August), though the first couple of weeks of September we saw a bit more amplification...lets keep everything crossed it's not like this in the winter.
  12. Be nice even if we don't get any severe or noteworthy cold to our shores just to see a bit more Pm or Am air behind depressions which has also been lacking over recent winters. All we seem to experience over recent winters when the Atlantic is fairly prevalent is Tm air 'butting' up against high pressure to the south east over the continent and mild to very mild temperatures. Even in milder winters of the 70's/80' and 90's we experienced some Pm air masses but seems to be fairly rare over the last 5 years.
  13. Met office Contingency planners forecasts

    I think the contingency planners forecasts needle is well and truly stuck...warmer than average for November to January as well when the next update is issued by any chance?
  14. Model Moans, Ramps and Banter

    Can anybody tell me why the Atlantic continues to be so active?...since June in varying degrees really, which hasn't been the case in recent summers and looks like in the medium term too.
  15. Autumn thoughts

    agreed!...weather for layman's. Nothing scientific at all.
