    The high needs to move about 100 or so miles north. Hope there’s time for it to change??

    First signs of a good response in fi by gfs this evening. I was expecting to see this more Monday to Wednesday think this could be a first stage response to ssw signals although still expecting the pv to be less organised but a good step in the right direction!

    People do realize that the digging upstream trough scenario route to cold does involve a trigger shortwave downstream ! OMG !!!

    We’ve seen these set ups many times and lived through the trauma !

    A word of caution don’t follow the GFS in this type of set up , it struggles badly in these set ups .

    GEFS are getting much better at day 10, we have lift off I reckon. Some good ones even by then.

    Nick im so glad you've flagged this.

    The gfs is a mess...

    We need to stand on format reliabilty here.

    And the ec/ecmf..is barreling head over heels here on evolutions.

    If someone wants to waste there type-time with model lead-diagram,..thats fine..

    But ecm is countering forcing..and prop/pv disolve..

    And reconing cold spill...

    However as per-my previous posts..

    The wedge(Hp) and both trough/placements..ARE BOUND BY NON YET NOTED LAYER RESPONCES!!.

     

    although thank god..we should now see the twist!!

    I suspect by mid-January we're going to be talking about the lack of rain at this rate rather than anything particularly wintry. The GFS 12z has rainfall amounts of <10mm for large parts of the UK out to mid-month, with areas in the south east getting just 1 or 2mm.

    After the dry summer and Autumn the lack of rain might start to become an issue if this comes to fruition.

    A word of caution don’t follow the GFS in this type of set up , it struggles badly in these set ups .

    The reason the scenario normally ends up in an epic fail for the GFS is it normally is last to develop the jet cutback towards the Low Countries .

    Effectively what happens in these types of evolutions is the upstream trough elongates and digs south , the response of the limpet high to that is to be pulled further nw , a piece of shortwave energy runs clockwise around that and cuts sw with the jet loop .

    This then runs under the high which then ridges towards Scandi . The shortwave helps to develop low heights to the south to support the high and then the cold air floods sw helping to develop your Genoa Low in Northern Italy . That’s the plan anyway !

    Funnily enough, that's what the para is doing right now:

    Agreed, this is just one run, who cares it’s in 300h+, but God we needed something to happen as it was starting to turn very wearisome, be interesting what the ECM has to offer.

    20 inches of snow will make up the shortfall m8

    I think it’s a bit too early to get this before day ten . The shortwave there is too far east and we don’t have enough amplification upstream .

    Of course it would be great if things could speed up!

    Any trop-responce-..will deviate then rapidly function via dynamics.

    And your note-the pv shunt and syphon...as well as the spillage into mid/lower latts.

    We are poised!

    This is exactly the kind of developments coldies need to be hearing more of.

    Lack of rain? We've been flooded 3 times in 3 months! We need a long dry period as the ground is saturated but a bit more sunshine would be nice to see

    GEFS look a right mixed bag..

    No clear signal as it stands..

    Apart from the zonal winds that are dropping off as i write..

    No..we need a long period of dry powdery snow!!..still waiting for the models to show it!!!!?❄️

    We're still waiting for the first snow flake here ,so any type will do us here we re no worried here in suffolk with no high hills to go to to see a greater chance of snow ,any snow for most of the UK is rare these days don't you think

    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)
