Hunt For Cold: Model Discussion - Heading Into Christmas

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 a wee look at the GEFS T850 ensembles... 

All but one of the runs for Aberdeenshire now finish below 0C: image.thumb.png.55da1547567df4f59ed49877938f4aad.png

And, for Northamptonshire, it's all but three: image.thumb.png.a2ab89e465508f1ec4b406fd85571dd5.png

Now that mid January is in range of the models, I must say it's looking potentially very interesting from a cold / snow lovers perspective according to the GEFS 6z postage stamps!....I have a feeling there will be plenty of wonderful output for coldies as we go further into the new year.👍❄️

Lift - off?

Beginning to look that way northwestsnow by New years day some real eye candy will be showing I think. The ECM will lead the way as your chart illustrates. The high slowly but surely edging northwards everything is in place we just await the trigger

We need @Man With Beard to explain the Icelandic clusters but seems 40% continue boring, 20% Scandinavian blocking 28% Greenland blocking 12% with the block just misplaced for me in the Netherlands

Good afternoon peeps 😊

Hope you all are ok and having a relaxing Sunday afternoon. Can't believe it's the last day of this year tomorrow, how quickly has the year whizzed past. I was going to post yesterday but to be honest I just had a sinking feeling in my heart from all the outputs that I went away to refresh.

so here we are still search for our snow. Rather s from day here in Walthamstow today not a glimmer of the sun. I must admit from what I am seeing from today's posts looks like a glimmer of hope is beginning to show, are we on the cusp of something special. Having said this we are still in the unknown and what the weather is about to do in the coming weeks is anyone's guess. The big question mark that is making me scratch my head is what is this high going to do. It could either be our sincere saviour and help the weather deliver our goods or it could be a heartbreaker and herald a pattern that we don't want to see going further into January.

i think we have only started moving on this rollercoaster the coming week is going to be tense and at times it's going to have us at the edge. Let's just now think positively and hope everything is on our side and hold our heads up. 

On s finishing note back in Feb/March it's the ECM that led the way and the others followed persuitr can it happen s second time. We live in hope 

our search for our winter wonderland continues 

take care for now all stay safe

kind regards 😊😊😊😊

Plenty of changes to come. This is a big difference in the ICON from 00 to 12z at just 120 hrs

Strange, it doesn't show the right image on the thumbnail until you click it.

That could be because of the 12h time difference 

 

Edit:you probably copied the wrong links both are from 12z

Models holding the high pressure firmly in place - rather a sinking high, it looks like it will stay in situ for quite some time, meaning low level cold surface air, plenty of frost, sunshine and possible freezing fog, so feeling more like winter to start 2019. 

I said yesterday GFS has a habit at sniffing out a northerly first, and the 6Z is showing one with heights advecting westwards into the mid atlantic - this is very plausible evolution, provided we maintain heights over or slightly to the north of the UK - as indicated by ECM today.

Whilst I doubt it will be a rapid trigger to an eventual much colder set up, what it will allow is for the jet to align on a more NW-SE path, bringing bouts of wind and rain, and wintry precipitation in the north (goes with the Met Office prediction), the trigger will though no doubt come from heights ridging sufficiently through the mid atlantic just when we see the PV shot to bits, heights over the Pole quickly linking hands, and the jet forced well to the south.

I won't be surprised to see the GFS 12z sink heights again, and dispel the northerly, only to serve up the 6Z scenario today in future runs, it will keep dropping the northerly idea, but then come back to it eventually and hold onto it.

No the links are correct with correlating times and the one on the right shows 00z when you click it for me, does it show 12z for you when clicked?

I see January 4th 1300 and January 5th 0100 both from today's 12z when I click on them

The above could well be the eventual pattern - but might take a slight while longer to get there -- a matter of days..

LOL that has me doubly stumped then. They both show 4th Jan 1300 for me. Must be a browser cache thing or something.

I suppose I should use the archive from 00z instead like thus.

ICON better again compared to 6z-

Better in what way? 

I thought this ridge was just going to sit there until the proper amplification post ssw.

If the pacific stays in a holding pattern, we get a quick return to Wqbo after the reversal and down welling doesn't hit the tpv in the way we want, expect Nick Sussex Prozac reserves to deplete quickly. He'll be Out of Stock!

ICON pretty poor, even if it is a chocolate teapot. (IMO)

 

Always look on the bright side of life do do do do.
