  1. The sooner the cold starts the better so that we benefit from the long nights!

    Granada & Sierra Nevada

    I also liked the Sicromonte hills overlooking the city. There are caves there where hippies live.

    Granada & Sierra Nevada

    December visit to the lovely Granada.
  4. Yes it sounds like a holding update until a clear pattern emerges. Not bad but not exciting either.
  5. I think so as Scandi and Siberia have below normal rainfall. However, the same applies to Iberia and Italy which is not what we want to see.
  6. Maybe they have seen how next week has imploded and are more cautious as a result.
  7. A bit underwhelming today! Basically equal chance between westerlies and more settle weather with high pressure nearby. We lost the wording of colder weather with the high pressure.
  8. Never ceases to amaze me how easily a cold spell vanishes from the models even from the semi reliable timeframe.

      Like trying to train Cliff Richard to stay in a cupboard  and never come out 

  9. The energy is going over the high as the trough is positively titled. It doesn't look good to me.

      Have a great time K..

  12. Quite a change in the models in the last 24 hours. Basically the high pressure is too far east for the UK and not as strong as initially thought. To be honest, I am not gutted because the easterly looked a bit toothless (the uppers were surprisingly high for mid December). Let's hope we get cool zonality before the next easterly opportunity arises.
  13. Stratospherically, the 12z GFS is a beauty and better than the earlier runs! It ends with a phenomenal displacement of the vortex.
  14. Some of the comments here are pure entertainment!
  15. The area around south of Greenland and Iceland is once again proving a magnet for low development so the high from the south can't successfully extend north enough. Is this linked with the SSTs in the area? This can be a proper winter screwer!
  16. They still haven't released it? That's bad!
  17. The updated ICON is a bit more appetising than this morning's run. It has weak heights to our north and a more southerly jet and a light easterly flow for the northern half of the country. https://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/icone_cartes.php?&ech=180&mode=0&map=0&archive=0
  18. For a time, I was worried about the possibility of missing some wintry weather by going away in December but it looks the only thing i will miss will be drizzle and southwesterlies. Not a front loaded winter after all.

    2. I remember Atlantic 252

      I remember Atlantic 252

      never underestimate the Atlantic in Dec, moderneraist in me I suppose but we are warming up, Atlantic air is more frequent that 20 years ago

      i don't know, got that member on ignore lol but the october fog index says no snow in london this winter, so if it snows it's a load of old ollocks like the other stuff

      I have too talk enough scatter cushion with out reading it 😂

  19. The MJO looks rather weak to me to have a significant impact on our weather pattern. http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/precip/CWlink/MJO/mjo.shtml Any thoughts from the experts?
