Model Output Discussion 31/03/14 onwards.


Recommended Posts

A brand new thread then to continue discussions on the models as we go into a new month.

 

Current outputs show a warm up from the south during this week but with some rain or showers about.

This off the back of a plume of warm continental air moving north into southern areas on a more southerly flow sandwiched between an Atlantic trough and a blocking high just to our east.

Latest runs suggest some cooling at the end of the week as the Atlantic fronts bring in a more westerly flow but with High pressure still showing it's hand over the continent by then it will be interesting to see what the further outlook into next week will be.

At the moment a more traditional nw/se type of split looks the more likely prospect but let's see how the 12z runs deal with this later.

OK then continue below when ready.

As mentioned above, it seems like a considerable shift in synoptic setup is forecasted, with a general dominance of low pressure over and just to the west of the UK anticipated in just a few days time

With the buildup of high pressure from the southwest, it seems like an end will come to a prolonged wet period. More settled conditions will prevail for the next few days over the UK. How will the wea

Well this week sees a large heat plume building over central & most of Western Europe,the UK however sitting on the western periphery with the trough anchored to the SW of us & southerly flow

Well the models are churning out now, lets see what the following week offers

Posted Image

UKMO going for a traditional west/south westerly pattern

 

Posted Image

GFS has the high a little further north so more areas will be dry

Again if the low in the Atlantic gets enough time it could pull some very warm air up from north Africa

Posted Image

Another plume possible next week if we are lucky, this time north eastern areas could get some very warm weather with winds from the South west as opposed to the south east this week.

Very respectable GFS 12z churning out now. Lots of light southerly breezes bringing relatively warm uppers in some more temperatures of 15-21c for many beyond the weekend. Posted Image

 

Yep very respectable indeed warm southerlies and April showers could be a lot worse 8 day 2m temperature anomaly remains above average UK wide

Average 2m temps left expected 2m temps right

Plenty of high temperatures on show this afternoon from GFS could be getting close to or just above 20c quite a few times over the next 2 weeks in some southern parts what a difference a year makes!

 

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

 

By Saturday the NE sees temperatures rising thanks to the wind switching direction its the east which sees the best temperatures initially

Temperatures back on the rise widely

The lowest charts are way out in FI with high pressure over the UK

GEM continuing to show pressure rising next week could be looking at a north westerly flow for a time keeping it slightly cooler for the north but the south holds onto the warmth which starts to move back north at the end

Whilst GEM goes for pressure building on Monday ECM says no instead going for a wet, cooler and windy start

 

Posted ImagePosted Image

Posted ImagePosted Image

 

Out of GFS, ECM and GEM which go to t240 its only ECM which has low pressure over the UK GEM can be viewed here with GFS below

Conversely the ECM is pretty dire, wet and windy

Could get a northerly as the Azores high retrogresses but I think it would be completely toothless though.

Aye the ECM run is utter garbage, hope that doesn't come off.

Tonight's ECM ensemble looks better tonight at day 9 and 10 with pressure rising from the SW

 

 

Posted ImagePosted Image

 

With that rise in pressure temperatures slowly rise from the south

 

Posted ImagePosted Image

So we now have agreement across the models that pressure will rise during the second week.

Agreement is getting better now but until its into the t144 range and lower caution is still needed

Hope im reading this right, but as its quiet ill have a go.....

 

ECM gets the low accross us to the east next week, bringing in this northerly flow....

Posted Image

 

obviously cooling things down quite a bit

 

Posted Image

 

its a long way off, so we cant be sure yet if week 2 will see a pressure rise or something more akin to this.

ECM 00z has kicked out a rather tasty little low for the time of year:

Plus the GFS is keen on the best part of a month's rain in a week for some areas of Wales, Scotland and the far NW of England:
