The hunt for cold - Model discussion (late November)

Paul

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.

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)

Just viewing the ECM clusters comparing yesterdays 00z with today's 00z for 13/12- now day 10,yesterday day 11.

I chose this time as this looks like the potential tipping point as to whether the block holds or is pushed se by any attack from the Atlantic.

I would say on today's lot the largest clusters show a stronger block, at that point further north, with the second cluster more in favour of an easterly and with low anomalies to our south.

Today's first with yesterday's second.

Based on these this could still go either way with still just over half of the clusterings showing some Atlantic inroads to westerlies.Still it is a move away from that today with a better looking block to bring cold in,compared to yesterday.

Interesting,.that would be very early indeed for an SSW, Where do you get this from? I can't find it

I always thought Hannah tends to use 65 deg N. 60N is of course correct in terms of it being an offical SSW.

Latest ECM running a bit higher at around 35 m/s at D10

Or load the 65N chart, then change the '65' to '60' in the URL.

06z ensembles are a bit colder in the mid to longer range than the 00z so the trend is on are side still for now 🙂 8AAC3096-29F0-4A30-88A1-55A77098D87B.thumb.gif.e20c80b4b8a209f93da18fc7cbf7c3fe.gif

Ensembles not looking that great with 3 in 4 clappsing the high and the rest only a few showing anything like the operation.

06z far better run, just been looking through the ensembles, very much an upgrade compared to 00z. Sorry can't post any charts right now

Consecutive posts completely at odds with one another. Which is it then chaps?!!

First one unfortunately 6z oper is much better but ensembles are very similar

Given the lower res that the ensembles run at this is not surprising. They always take a few runs to come onboard with the op, especially in a blocking scenario such as this.

 

Stick with the hi-res runs for now.

You always have a very cautious outlook...

You can’t beat an easterly for drama in here !

In an ever changing world good to see some things never change !

Thankfully the GFS06 hrs run pulls back from the less than inspiring 00hrs run. I still think we’re lacking sufficient trough disruption , so the bowling ball shaped lows moving east are still sending too much energy ne.

We want to see these more elongated digging more energy south/ south east  into the mid Atlantic .

The ECM does disrupt more energy se which is what you want to see.

The UKMO looks the pick of the big 3 , for its upstream pattern at day 6 and at day 7 is has more trough disruption .

I've seen too many modeled cold episodes getting postponed and then downgraded. For a real cold spell we need cross model and almost all the ensembles on board

 

I want to see something like this

You don’t want much! 😀

The thing with easterly type set ups is the ensembles take longer to come on board . Because the jet cut back in towards the Low Countries and upstream trough disruption are much better handled by the higher resolution op runs. Even then as we’ve seen from previous easterly traumas they can still get it wrong . 

I’d advise newer members to hold off ordering the ear muffs and scarves for at least another day !

There is a shift towards the cold clustering with the 06z - compare

00z

06z

Can you post the control, that looks epic.

Not model related so will probably be deleted... encouraging none the less,particularly for us coldies

GFS has an E and potential battleground - these ensembles all on the rise for mid Dec - but all agreement for cold dip at 8/12 though

But can we see more improvement on the 12z ENS, them pesky milder members keep turning up and need to naff off....I'm feeling lucky!:oldrolleyes:😁

Incidentally, though I did not follow the forum at the time, that came to be the coldest I have seen in a long time over where I live. It broke quite a few cold long standing records

Poor ICON 12z, even worse than its 00z run. Hoping for a lot better from the other models this afternoon, UKMO will be all important.😒
