GFS has been very poor. Stick with the euros for now.

I though the GFS has done ok in the last few weeks leading up to the cold spells ?? Let's be honest tho they all have there moments . Even the UKMO has had wobbles in the last few weeks . The GFS 18z has it nailed for #Beast 3 but that's only because it shows cold and snow 😉

A very interesting set of ensembles, key points:

1) The high to our north is set to become more influential early next week with cold pooling over Scandinavia
2) Support is growing for another cold easterly. The control in addition to the OP shows a cold easterly
3) There is a risk that low pressure could just get stuck meaning the UK doesn't see any cold air
4) However given the ensembles were slow to catch up last time we had an easterly, I get the feeling something is afoot....

Yes they were slow at catching on on Beast 2 . Even the ECM eps . The op runs started to show it around the 7day mark and the ensembles caught up a few days later 🙂. Will it happen again ???

Latest GFS Operational for March 30th 2018 vs December 2nd 2010 - that low to the south looks rather interesting!

18z op is quite a bit colder than the mean and control for a time

Amazing how much colder the chart for the end of March is, I thought they were the wrong way round!

P10 offers to break the deadlock one thing not achieved widespread snow in SE and south. I find the more marginal set ups more thrilling very tricky to forecast but reward can be high. I actually see a snow event such as this as very plausible.

Late on 1/12/10 that low started as a trough, moved north, developed into a low as it did so and stalled over the south of england during the early hours of 2/12 - and delivered a foot [give or take] of snow by dawn.

were they slow?  Ec op had a go at day 10 to get the pv chunk under a scandi ridge which we all thought was nuts. it picked it up again three or four runs later and didn’t drop it save for one well dodgy op six days before? 

I didn’t think gfs was so far behind but more erratic. ICON was best.

I’m not buying that gfs 18z suite but the 00z models seem to be honing on on an agreed solution which is a watered down  less progressive version of it.

WOW - was the 18z GEFS ensemble suite actually better than the 0z then - didn't see it - the 0z looks a stonker.

It’s clear that Easter barbecue’s are off the agenda this year

could see a second wave of cold for Easter mon/Tuesday behind a dropping low which would be a pretty snowy feature over northern hills and could well run a track which brings more of the country into play. 

Gavin’s Azores ridge next week looks to have been cancelled, along with the rest of March springtime...........

Quite remarkable Synoptics showing up this March. Especially given the fact that many have decent cold to tap into. 

How often in the past have we seen great charts but lacking in cold to tap into. It seems the cold over the pole keeps draining south and west. 

Is this still all to do with the second wave of SSW?

Some would say not but we all know the truth ...... it’s several downwelling waves by the time we see the Easter one (wherever it hits)

Last night the Op was on the cold side of the mean towards the end of the month and into April now the control has joined in

The mean does look marginally higher around Easter take April 1st last night it was -5 this morning it is around -3

The op and control are the most important runs though by far - probably the mean doesn't count for much here. I think we need to wait to after easter to look for proper warm now.

Yet another cracking run from GFS 06z

Well the swing to an easterly continues, do we get another potentially snowy spell, or will low pressure meander around the UK keeping it away? At the moment you have to say an easterly is the favourite yet again!

      A busy spell coming up, as the beast from the east arrives.
      As the focus of the model thread is often a bit further ahead, for those wanting to talk more exclusively about the shorter term outputs, we do have a short-range thread up and running. (You're still welcome to discuss the shorter term in here too though).
      This thread is all about discussing the models - but we have loads of other options for other topics:
      As always, please keep it to the models in here, and head over to the banter thread for any moans, ramps and general chat.
      For threads related to the cold spell, met office forecasts, the winter overall and much more on top, please take a look at the general weather forum:
      https://www.netweather.tv/forum/forum/1-winter-and-general-weather-discussion/
      And finally, if you're wanting to chat about your local weather, the risk of snow in your particular location etc, then the regional threads are for you:

      Ooh yes, it's busy and with good reason - it's a rare beast to see the sort of charts we're seeing right now. It would appear the UK and much of Europe is headed into the freezer, but how cold, and for how long?
      As always, please keep to just discussing the model output in this thread.
      We have a thread open to discuss the cold spell - so if you're wanting to chat more generally about it, or talk about forecasts from the BBC, Met Office, Netweather etc, please head over there:
      https://www.netweather.tv/forum/topic/89358-ssw-related-cold-spell-will-it-wont-it/
      It's also worth keeping an eye on is the blogs from our team including @Jo Farrow & @Nick Finnis, there's some great info about the SSW, the cold spell etc, and new articles will be posted regularly:

      The much talked about SSW has taken place, but as Nick blogged about a few days ago, it doesn't always mean cold for the UK. The signs are good though (if you like cold that is), and the model output is showing a lot of northern blocking currently. It's set to be a really interesting time to follow the models if nothing else, so please carry on the discussion here. 
      As ever, please keep it to model discussion only in this thread.....
