    This 18z is cold all the way.  Could be an incredible cold deep FI set up going for the bonkers JMA Huge GHP....1060 to 1065 so not alone

    For what we are offered in the short term, and what we potentially achieve in the long term this is a great run without ever hitting the nail on the head. It would only take a slight shift in orientations and the 850's would be very different indeed.

    If we can get a direct Northerly from this it'll have some serious bite to it !!IMG_4221.thumb.PNG.0d444ecfe6cc50192756049c5d33c73e.PNG

    Huge building of heights showing from earlier in the run.  This at 252 and 276 would have major ramifications down the line. Massive incoming northerly for Europe.  Edit - scuppered by I'm not sure what!  The Greenie high just sort of vanished - quite strange really.

    Incredible. The GFS manages to dissolve a 1060MB blocking area of high pressure in the space of 3 frames.

    Yeah-yeah FI and all that but if people aren't happy with this as a starting board...that being after resolve of the upcoming cold-poss- snow then give up the ghost. .lol..

    Some cracking resolutions I feel incoming outputs. ....

    Still manages to go wrong and gets cut off by a random short wave.

    The trend is good though...

    The favoured fi route of the GEFS (and eps control btw) 

    a fair few  of those  GEFS members ended up with the main thrust to our east as the ridge held close to the uk. We may be seeing the week 2 trend playing out here. Certainly the trend of though tomorrow could easily be different!

    Guys , what appears to be coming  in the next few days appears so little compared to what we thought only yesterday. At the moment not the two weeks of severe cold , but a little cold for three days.  Pressure too high when it is cold for significant snow  and when pressure lowers the mild air comes in.  Pretty awful . 

     

    The high is still there next week and after but cool air only from its SE direction. We need the Scandi high much further west and not to sink any further . 

    I dont know where the optimism on this board comes from. It is from years of cold and snow starvation .

    That's GFS low res for you...no way that low behaves like that if that was being modelled within hi-res. All academic anyway as it's the trending we're interested in at those timeframes.

    Well very good 18z. Bar a few days of above 0 uppers which will still feel cold  the whole run was cold and blocked  time to dig the winter woolies out . Also of note is the windchill  hopefully might even get a few more upgrades regarding snow potential

    will it?  won't it?  one of the questions we keep asking.  Me?  I'll see what the weather does, obsessing on every model run will not help

    Not sure I'm obsessing TBH NNW

    Uppers look volatile at the moment

    Much water (hopefully frozen) to go under bridges until we can be sure

    Pretending otherwise is unwise I think

    Though this has the potential to be the most notable spell of the winter

    Ice days are possible for some favoured locations

    Even if the upper temps aren't great there's surface cold to think of.

    Snow?  Still to be determined.

    From the moment the Azores high ridged further north in the earlier frames one could tell that the Greenland high was coming. It may not evolve quite like the 18Z shows, and certainly I wouldn't bother taking the low res into consideration, but I would be very surprised given all the background signals if we didn't end up with something similar in 10 days time. And in the meantime we have the Scandi cold thrust to look forward to. Happy days.

    There are no words.....:fool:

    Back to the models the 18z looks pretty darn good in the reliable time frame if you are of a cold persuasion and is just another variation on the ongoing theme.

    Even when we lose the cold uppers on this run it will still feel bitter at the surface.  :cold:

    No he has a got a point,this cold will lead to nothing special.its looking like a cold snap rather then spell,people saying next week will be cold with higher 850's but it wont be that cold,probably 5/6c nothing special is it! It seems people are to bias on here when there's signs of cold coming,always trying to ramp it up.its almost like we lie to ourselfs in suggesting that it will be a lot colder then what is showing.

    As the saying goes get the cold in first and the snow potential will come! Because the charts won't be able to show small disturbances in the flow that far out so all to play for as long as the easterly is still there tomorrow!

    Yes. It was interesting to see how GFS low-res played with the Greenland-scenario. We'll have to wait and see whether this develops in a FI-trend...

    It would be nice if over the next 24 hours that stiff ESE could be squeezed just a bit flatter so we keep the nice dewpoints-

    The 18z has about 36 hours in 'warmth' from 138 -174 where the dewpoint is >0c 

    then it tumbles again- getting an easterly squeeze would certainly shorten it...

    BTW one for @IDO this is the 10 day 12z mean.... :)
