Model Output Discussions 12z 30/11/16

Recommended Posts

Certainly GFS Op hasn't really been representative of the ensembles for long term prospects and the 12 is probably the best for cold solutions for quite a while.

Just over 60% eventually find some decent blocking

My concern is the lack of operational/det/control support. ECM + GEM don't go far enough to see, ditto for UKMO. Trends are trends though....

you sort of answered your own question!

more importantly, the ops become less and less reliable past day 6/7 to the point that at day 10 they are generally only 50% on the money with the heights 

i must have dreamt the past few gfs ops (and one para) that amplified late on.

What's the difference between the GFS and GEFS? Is the GEFS an updated version of the GFS? Cheers.

I would be more concerned if the extended ensembles were all mild mush like they were this time last year..I'm sure we will get some peachy cold low res operational output soon if support for a colder second half / last third of Dec grows..hopefully it will

It is my understanding that the GEFS are the ensembles including the gfs operational and control run.

GEFS is the GFS ensembles. You can view individual purbs and the control run and the mean of the suite.

GEFS are the ensembles, whilst the GFS usually refers to the OP?   That's what I always thought.

ECM 168hr not as good as the earlier run less heights further North and the split in vortex not as good, let see how the rest of it unfolds.

GEFS are the ensembles. GFS is referred to as the operational run, whereas GEFS is the entire suit of GFS data including the ensembles.

The bit in brackets is wrong Chris 

the gem ens (often called the geps) is available on meteociel

Going off potential changes shown further on in the GEFS I doubt we'll see too much that floats coldies boats in the ECM for a few days, poss WAA heading towards the U.K. and maybe North at 240 maybe but that's it.

more important is the extended EPS

Temps could reach mid teens celsius in some eastern and southern areas from midweek, especially wed / fri looking at the Ecm 12z..but then it turns cooler during next weekend. The temps are only half the story though as swly winds will be fresh to strong at times and we will all see at least some rain.

So..chilly early with slight frosts and mist / fog  then much milder and more unsettled  before cooling down next weekend with high pressure building in mid week 2.

GFS now has 10 runs reaching above average 60N zonal wind speeds - ( post 192 ) thats up 5 from yesterday

its rapidly going pete tong im afraid.

UKMO 144 is about the best chart today..

Some nice temps progged there, Frosty...If it ain't cold enough to snow, then 15C sounds like the next best thing, to me - 4/5C with cold, sleety rain disnae float my boat!:good:

A disappointing ECM run until day ten which showed an improving NH pattern but we've seen this before with day ten charts never managing to get any closer. Earlier the ECM backtracked from its 00hrs run with less made of the ridging from the north and more energy going ne.

Overall after a few frosty nights early on the next ten days barring some better trough disruption look generally mild with wettest conditions in the far north. The Euro slug high slowly weakens its grip. Unfortunately still no sign of any appreciable snow for the ski resorts and they will be praying for a change because this could turn into yet another terrible Christmas season following on from recent years.

If that's at 10 hPa or even 30 hPa it may not be of much concern as we look to have some strong ammunition coming along with which to fight it off for a good number of weeks. That being what I've been talking about for the past week.
