UN120-21.GIF?25-17

12z UKMO. Hmm. That low N of Iceland needs to split cleanly from the Canadian lobe for this to go anywhere particularly enticing.

Meanwhile GFS has the Canadian low heights so much further west that having had little lows sneaking across Greenland has not mattered, in fact it's being turned in our favour by the looks of it via a new round of height building in the N. Atlantic.

Question is whether UKMO's positioning of the Canadian low heights is old news with the model lagging behind, if GFS' new idea is just a flight of fancy; a fluctuation in what happened to be a nice direction? That it fits to some extent with the 00z ECM reduces the chances of this, but even so, UKMO makes me wary of any expectations of a prolonged or (at least very) quickly reloading cold spell.

Well it’s all abit meh tonight so far. Gfs flipping about like a fish out of water upto t190. The ukmo is a worry and seems to match the extended outlook last night from the met. So next week looks cold and frosty with few wintry flurries. Where we go from here who knows. Let’s hope the ecm can shed some more light later. Just hope it doesn’t follow the ukmo

Overall theme from all models if for generally cold conditions to persist, with a blocked atlantic. GFS and ECM suggesting re-building heights in the vicinity of Greenland and a significant arctic high, with mid atlantic ridge development - if the three combine then a very cold wintry outlook could eventually develop, but as shown by UKMO shortwave development could scupper it. What I can't see from any of the models is a swift return to atlantic zonal stuff anytime soon. Keep an eye on developments over NE USA as it is here where the key lies to developments our way through early December. We are in an excellent synoptical set up for quite a sustained colder period, how cold remains to be seen.

Happy to see the fells covered in snow today, indeed there was snow down to 150 metres this morning.

Some of the gefs members have developed a west based neg NAO in week 2 - maybe this op will do similar ??

the transition between amplifications is uncertain but gfs 12z isn’t too far from ecm 00z so that would seem to be a decent call at present

There is an element of the models trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory this afternoon but I suspect ECM will restore the faith.

There is still a lot of variation in how blocking will develop and take hold but the main thing is blocking is still strongly modelled throughout.

We may well just be seeing worse case scenarios which themselves seem to be slow burners to a possible deeper cold setup.

And we are guaranteed at least a cold spell to come so not too concerned at the moment - just the normal run to run ebb and flow.

Also GFS is BS from 192. (not just because it is FI but the way it develops a bowling ball secondary trough to pump up Euro heights.

UKMO - Yuck. It makes a mess of a shortwave and as a result, poor blocking. UKMO has been all over the shop

GFS - Good. Differing solutions for the extended but overall theme for a continuation of blocked/cold is still very much there

ECM - Ideally we want to see it follow the GFS and tell the UKMO to step up it's game. This mornings ECM clusters/ensembles were very good.

Very cold next week, slight easing of cold thereafter as the high orientates itself. (hopefully back towards Greenland) We have 6-7 days of guaranteed cold weather with snow likely cropping up at short notice. The FAX charts will be key, look for toughs/small wave like features in the unstable flow.

The 12z's are a little underwhelming in comparison to this mornings output, but the reliable time-frame is still looking very good for most of the UK.  It will be interesting to see if the ECM sticks to its guns tonight.  Back here at 6.00 for the next gripping instalment!

Lots of increasingly wintry weather next week on the Gfs 12z with the midweek period seeing a risk of snow just about anywhere as arctic air digs south..these are great charts from a coldies point of view for the end of autumn..biting cold Northerly winds for a time next week with snow showers across exposed northern and eastern areas, even the southeast seeing some snow on this run..hope we do get these colder uppers to support wintry ppn!frosty, icy and for some, snowy through most of next week according to this!;):cold::santa-emoji:

You didn't think it was just going to go all according to plan did you? Let's hope it just a wobble from the UKMO and nothing more. For most on here a proper cold spell is needed to finally get that long awaited snow. Please ECM restore the faith!
