Hunt For Cold: Model Discussion - Heading Into Christmas


Message added by 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)

The forecast for christmas day looks similar to what it has done for recent days... mild but not especially so, a small chance of something colder and a fair bit of uncertainty remaining

For New Years Day the ensembles show very low heights to our NW in quite a few of them. Either a strong westerly or anticyclonic appears most likely at this early point.

Just going by those a hint of an easterly. If it was northerly you would expect Inverness to be colder.

62-63 and 78-79 indeed were epic but those other winters were very mediocre, well at least we have a lottery ticket

1977/78 was also a cold and snowy Winter though, although probably overshadowed by the following Winter of 1978/79. 2002/03 however was pretty pants here, although I think some other regions did okayish  during this Winter. Obviously not fantastic though, but at at least 3 of those years went on to produce good Winters for cold and snow.
