    A few coldies have jumped on the ECM tonight, clutching at some very thin straws to say the least! There's no escape from the heat I'm afraid- better enjoy the weekend!

    At what height are you getting these 19°C optimal conditions? I tend to look at 850 to 500hPa lapse rates to look for some form of instability during hot/humid conditions, and we sure get higher than 19°C lapse rates.

    850 HPA- 18/19c is really the top out.

    Next weekends modelling is looking totally toasty !!!

    The 16c line is around 35c for Sat / Sun.. maybe higher as the days close in...

    I have a strong feeling this may prove to be nearer the mark. A continuation of the current weather gets mathematically smaller the longer it persists. Could only be a short return to normal conditions though. Hopefully not,a change is long overdue.

    If the rest of summer really does end up being sh te then at least it should go out with a bang. We'll get our hot August eventually.

    It ain't going go out with a bang here, more like a dribble.

    Oh well, at least you have some frontal rain and average temps to look forward to.

    There is a danger that once the atlantic gets its foot in the door, there could be some danger in trouble shifting it.

    Last one from me, no your wrong here, when I was posting the GFS 12Z runs I was only commenting on its persistence to remove the hot air this weekend, that's all.

    found the offending post.... and as expected, you were talking about the 'removal of the hot air', i was talking about the whole gfs run at that time which suggested this breakdown would be a pattern change.

    see... problem resolved.

    From the met office website re July 2003

     

    1st to 3rd A depression in the North Sea brought a cool unsettled spell, with rain and thundery showers in many places. Some general rain in the north-east on the 3rd. 

    4th to 11th The weather became mostly dry with rising temperatures as the low pressure moved to Scandinavia and high pressure settled close by to the south. Some rural areas had a few mist or fog patches on occasions around dawn. Atlantic fronts skirting northern districts on the 8th gave some rain and drizzle. Most days saw long sunny periods. Very warm or hot conditions occurred in many parts during the 9th and 10th. A weak cold front passing later on the 10th introduced fresher air by the 11th. 

    12th to 15th With high pressure over Scandinavia, sunny, dry, hot weather soon returned as air was drawn from the continent. Local mist and fog patches cleared quickly but thundery rain intruded into the south-west at times later. Wisley in Surrey reached 33.6 °C on the 15th while Maidenhead had its hottest July day since 1976. 

    16th to 20th More unsettled as Atlantic depressions encroached, but it stayed mostly very warm or hot at first. There was widespread thundery rain, heavy at times during the 16th and 17th, as a low moved north-east across the country. St Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan had over 50 mm in 12 hours on the 17th. Western areas had more rain at times on the 18th, 19th and 20th, while eastern areas were sunnier and drier. Residual hot air over the south-east and East Anglia on the 19th gave way that evening as thunderstorms broke out, some lasting into the early hours. 

    21st to 23rd A breezy spell with sunny periods and some scattered showers mostly in the west and north.

    24th to 26th Atlantic depressions to the north-west brought an unsettled spell with rain bands depositing copious amounts in places, especially over south-west England, Wales and the Midlands. Cardinham in Cornwall received 58 mm in 12 hours ending 0900 GMT on the 25th. Thunder was reported from Lyneham in Wiltshire during the 26th. 

    27th to 31st After some thunderstorms in the south-east and East Anglia early on 27th, further rain and showers with cooler temperatures affected many places. A small low moved eastwards over northern England during the 30th bringing heavy thundery showers to north-west England and eastern England down to East Anglia, with tornadoes reported from Sculthorpe in Norfolk. As the month closed more rain moved into western and north-western areas.

     

    and we all know what happened in August..:-)

    I just suggested as a possibility that's all, the output may well be completely different this morning, but personally looking five days plus ahead is best to be taken with a pinch of salt as the last two or three is a perfect example as the forecasts changed almost hourly, but this is 2018 so it's unlikely to be the same as 2003, which however i cannot remember due to my med condition.

    My recollection of 2003 Summer was one where the sunny/warm weather was interspersed with "cooler spells". each time the sunny/warm weather returned it returned hotter and each time the cool weather returned it was less cool. I guess this would be pretty obvious as the summer season progressed but my point is that just like 2003 the forecast change from a favourable outlook in 2003 to a less favourable , depending on your preferences of course, gave no indication of what was to happen. What has struck me this year is how similar the pattern is ie High pressure dominance early summer 

     

    This is an interesting read regarding factors that contributed to 2003

    Thanks for that, i'll try to read it when i can concentrate for long enough, without getting a headache. (not being sarcastic by the way!)

    Well this weekend looks poor now! temps in the teens both days, possibly enough rain for July to finish above average for me! 
    Even the less wet looking ECM is the worst ECM run so far for me (this forecast only shows the 1pm-7pm rainfall).
    1357743558_ECMforeacst26thJuly.thumb.png.f959878df7676d9a6927afeb8386cd0e.png
    Met office forecast wet and windy all day Sunday, gusting 40mph!

    This coincides nicely with my 10 days off work and the one weekend I have booked with friends....

    These charts are far, far more unsettled than the ones that kept getting labelling wrong, hilarious etc, due to them supposedly over-doing the low. :rolleyes:

    Of course, if my location was being affected by the heatwave that the radio is going OTT about.. I may not be so bothered by this 'blip'.
    To top it off even tomorrow has downgraded here (21c lol), and we've had un-forecast cloud all morning that is still refusing to go and is reforming now.

    We have a load of unforecast cloud too so no 30C for us. I don't understand why this cloud always develops and refuses to leave.

    My nephew gets married in Honiton, a weekend of outdoor celebrations now looking like being scuppered by wet weather, couldn't make it up. Weekend upon weekend of superb weather all summer until this one, his sister got married over a month ago, also in south Devon, weather was pretty drab then too. Sod's law!

    That's why I always prefer the high pressure heatwaves as there's almost guaranteed sun. As good as this one may turn out for temperatures, the air is too unstable and nuisance cloud is an issue.

    Checking the models this morning, it looked like quite a similar evolution to the 2003 heatwave with the trough that affects us on Monday lifting out of the UK with high pressure quickly establishing by Wednesday onwards.
