If you're hunting for cold potential in the model output, this thread is for you. But if you'd like to look more widely at the models, please head over to the general model discussion thread.

Both AO And NAO go very negative the end of October through possible recovery to netural

That's not very negative look at 09/10 winter for strong neg AO and NAO.

But there's no doubt something interesting is brewing.

We have seen many times the whole pattern collapse.

Although this year seems extremely sluggish which helps to get blocks becoming strong and robust.

This might just be a cold snap but if the heights stay out west and northwest anything cold has a better chance.

 

The JMA has been pretty consistent but there's always a chance things could go east.

But wait and see looking good tho

Almost certainly going to a very cold northerly later on this week with perhaps sleet or snow at lower levels if the GFS 12z is believed. Next question is how long will it last? Will the block become anchored over Greenland and keep the cold going? or will it be a toppler?

looks like only a topper i’m afraid,turning very much milder again after next Sunday according to the latest bbc forecast.They have extra model data i presume to come to that conclusion ,over a week away ?

As far as I’m aware they stopped using MEtO last year and so don’t have access to MOGREPS etc anymore but may have replaced with their own?

Nice Northerly setting in from the arctic @ T+144 hours on the Ukmo 12z..next weekend would become even colder..add to this a great update from exeter and this is a very good time to be a coldie considering winter doesn't even start for another five weeks!!😀❄️👍:cold:

Nothing I've seen suggest this from data or the weather forecast don't suggest a warm up maybe bit milder briefly.

but the forecasts I've watched all point to cooler colder weather whether that be unsettled cool or unsettled cold,

or settled cold,

then that still points to colder than average.

Isn't searching for a northerly this time of year somewhat...pointless? You would need something incredibly potent (eg. 2008) for any interest to occur. The vast majority of the UK will see cool temperatures, a nippy wind and rain. The coldest most densely habitable locations go is between 5-8C according to the GFS. It's wonderful of course if you are just looking for colder conditions, but if it's snow then it will be restricted to high peaks.

Those charts aren't particularly exciting I don't think, westerlies with temperatures a little below average is all I can see there.

For next weekends northerly to be more then a toppler our best bet is to get the cold over Europe as well and then get pressure to build over Scandi. This wouldn't be particularly cold but its still early days though.

I couldn't agree more PS...In this part of the world, the best we'll from that'd be about 8C with some cold rain. Or, should we be really lucky, some driving drizzle.

Lovely!

I think we are now seeing a trend to a more unsettled phase of weather after the northerly. The question is how long for? According to the meto, pressure will build to the north of the UK during the middle of Nov. I just wish this was a few weeks further on though.

Yes maybe but the new thread is the search for cold however futile.

Maybe ppn (white not drizzle) on the tops?

Its 100% a toppler - it was never going to be anything else-

However there my be enough residual heights to the NNE to steer the jet SE which is exactly what the ECM tries to do-

Charts to warm the cockles of a coldies heart from the Ecm 12z with our first cold blast looking very likely later next week..can't wait for it to get here..some of us could see SNOW before the end of october, the last time that happened was 2008!!!😉☃️❄️:cold:

Another shot at the 4 wave pattern from the FV3 tonight, here at T174:

And a real cold blast at the UK next weekend too...

fascinating to see where this all leads.

Funny enough that'd be precisely 10 years to the date since the Oct 2008 snow that even managed to fall in London for a time.

Gave me a miss of course, but it takes a lot more to do the business over here than in the SE. My snow appetite is unusually low this winter though - thanks to the amount I saw last Feb-Mar. It's so liberating 🤪.

Here’s a graphic showing snow fall on 12z ecm. Remember that we suspect this accumulates all snow that has fallen, so is not a realistic reflection of snow depth.

Hi Mike

the most important ingredient to getting ( & sustaining ) a 4 wave pattern is to have high pressure over the pole for the ridges to engage with - like weather historys post earlier-

If you have low heights you will never sustain any 4 waves because at least 2 will be transient --

Thanks Steve, that does make sense, apologies if I was getting a little overexcited, there's a lot of interest in the model output at the moment, despite it still being mid-October!

JMA 12z has the pressure rising into Greenland at T144:

I know the values over Greenland are suspect but nice to see the 1075 contour make an appearance nonetheless.

Meanwhile, in the strat, GFS suggesting the PV brakes coming on big time:

      Here we go with a fresh hunt for cold thread as we move into a colder spell of weather and towards the end of Autumn.
      As this is a new thread for this season, there's perhaps been a bit of confusion over what does or doesn't fit in here. So to help out, and be transparent in terms of our moderation of the thread, these are the guidelines we're working to, so if everyone can aim to stay within them, happy days!
      This is a model related thread, so a general, frequent theme of the model output is a given, but it will not be strictly enforced:
      Some topic drift, humorous responses etc are fine Posts likely to lead the thread off on an entirely off topic tangent are not ok. For example (but not solely limited to): Posts entirely or mainly about Met Office, BBC or media forecasts with little or no model context, and posts solely asking for a weather forecast in a specific location. Posts which start with something like 'I know this is off topic but ...' are not ok. Posts which break the forum guidelines are not ok (eg trolling, troll-hunting, weather guilt tripping, overly defensive/aggressive, abusive, disrespectful to others) Hopefully this helps, if in doubt please ask a member of the team, and if you see a post you think may fall outside of these guidelines, please report it. 
      If you'd prefer a slower paced, more general (not cold slanted) model discussion, please head over to the general thread here.

      Greetings!
      A shiny new model thread for the new season to continue your discussions of the latest charts etc. 🍂🍁
      There looks to be a lot of wild weather to come in the next few days with further showers, heavy rain and blowy weather. As many have illustrated, some particular concerns about Sunday where models, such as the GFS, show a troublesome storm exploding over the U.K! However, since it’s still a few days away and with models showing varied solutions on the Low Pressure system’s track and power, there are still questions as to how bad it may actually be.

      Even before then, there’s a risk of gales at times with strong South-Westerly to Westerly winds.
      Please keep on topic in here sticking to the models and please keep things friendly. Rude and insulting behaviour is not tolerated! 🚫
      If your post contains moans, banter and ramps, expect it to either get deleted ❌ or moved into a more suitable thread. Would be ideal to keep any banter and moaning to a minimum, otherwise this would be a more suited thread for it (especially if it’s about Autumn): 
      But a bit of moans, banter and ramping is acceptable in here as longs as it still has a fair amount of sensible model chat and is not overdone.
      Additionally, we also have a Short Range Model Chat thread, which can be used to discuss charts within the short range (preferably around the 0 to 72 hour mark, but up to 5 days would still be okay).
      But you can still use this main model thread if you wish for short range discussions.
      Also, we have a Model Tweets thread for posting tweets about the models:
      ...and a Stratospheric Temperature watch thread for monitoring the temperatures and conditions within the Stratosphere:
      If you do post tweets about the models in this main model thread, then make sure you include some reasonable discussion of the models in your post as well, otherwise it may get moved to the Model Tweets thread.
      (Edit): Having said that, we have lots of different topics in this forum section you can take part in, not just the ones mentioned above. 🙂

      Please continue with the model discussion here, as we perhaps head towards the hottest spell of what has already been a rare, very dry, very warm summer?
      Please keep on topic in this thread, by only discussing the model output. This isn't the place to be discussing (or arguing) over weather preferences and the like, so please don't be tempted to go there! And as ever, please also keep it friendly...

      Well we are around the halfway point of the Spring season and it seems a good time to start a new thread to continue discussions.
      A look at the 00z ECM day 4 charts shows that finally some widespread warmth is on the way after the cold,damp and often cloudy conditions of recent weeks.

      A developing Euro high and a stalling Atlantic trough pushing the jet stream further north and bringing the winds from a warmer south/south westerly direction.
      A welcome change of pattern for most of us i would think.
      Ok please continue
