Met office 16 to 30 day outlook

UK Outlook for Sunday 3 Mar 2013 to Sunday 17 Mar 2013:

Many areas are likely to be colder than average through much of this period, perhaps more especially across the eastern side of the UK. Nights are then often also likely to be frosty. Also some signs of conditions turning a little more unsettled during the early part of this forecast period, perhaps with a chance of snow. Generally, however, no strong signals regarding precipitation and taking the period as a whole some areas of the UK will probably end up a little drier than usual for the time of year. Finally, towards the middle of March temperatures may recover close to the seasonal norm.

Doesn't seem like they are buying the GFS 06Z ensemble mean for early March, can see them changing their 16 to 30 day outlook back and forth Posted Image

Yeah hopefully precipitation will be below average giving everywhere time to dry out, not very nice going on country walks when everywhere is so boggy

Do the GFS ensembles go out that far, Eugene?

Yes gavin you are right, i just want some prolonged dry weather as like you say unsettled periods are no good for country walking, the reason i favour cold and dry is because the countryside is still very very muddy and until the sun really increases in strength that is the best way to help me on my country walks with firm underfoot conditions after harsh night frost, GFS 06Z ensembles were probably too late for this update, GFS 00Z ensembles were similar for early March though and i didnt see the ensembles for yesterday so maybe they showed mild wet sw'lys too, sounds like you arent that into unsettled weather even if mild.

UK Outlook for Monday 4 Mar 2013 to Monday 18 Mar 2013:

Some areas still a little colder than average at the start of this period, perhaps more especially across the eastern side of the UK. Nights are then often also likely to be frosty. Also some signs of conditions being a little more unsettled during the early part of this forecast period, perhaps with a chance of snow. Generally, however, there are no strong signals regarding precipitation, and taking the period as a whole, some areas of the UK will probably end up a little drier than usual for the time of year.

Rather unsettled at times towards the northwest of the UK, but largely dry further south and east. Some areas still a little colder than average, perhaps more especially across the eastern side of the UK, with some frosty nights. Generally, there are no strong signals regarding precipitation, but taking the period as a whole, some areas of the UK will probably end up a little drier than usual for the time of year.

Seems to be a steady backtrack away from potential wintry conditions for the 1st half of March.

One assumes this 'backtrack' as you label it is a scientific assessment of all the data at their disposal to suggest that conditions look now like being less wintry. It would be pretty daft if they did not update do you not think?

Not a reply to you but a comment over some responses to the 6-15 and 16-30 day outlook, especially the latter.

The posts seem to be a mix of

'its the same story why keep issuing the same'

or

they change their mind too often to be reliable

whatever they do it seems they are wrong by some folk-funny really. Reading back over the last few weeks it really is rather funny..

I was merely commenting on a change in their forecast to something less wintry today. Not a criticism and to be honest I was expecting a downgraded wintry outlook from them. Fine by me.......
