    Never mind cold...some of these charts are starting to scream potential water problems down the road if we don't start getting these weather systems through. 

     

    After a long hot summer this is not good.

     A good GFS but it is in the not reliable timeframe 240 hours well that says it all   May I wish all of you at NW a very happy prosperous and a peaceful 2019.  I hope it’s a good one for everyone and you all get what you want including plenty of cold and snow.

    GFS 00z has come up with the most boring run of 2019 ?

    It is boring though

    Wouldnt believe that there has been a SSW on that GFS 00Z one.... Sometimes i think it just comes up with anything scientifically or not as it has to show something...

    When it shows a cold chart then it may be on to something obviously!!

    The general theme within GFS ensembles is for a trough to set up in Europe/Scandinavia and have Atlantic blocking, possible blocking to the NW around mid month or just after which would likely signal a cold phase

    That seems to be reflected in the ensemble graph

    Yes those charts are deep FI but important to note it is game over for the Atlantic from day 8 on this run, from there it is just a question of how clean the evolution is and how long it takes to get cold to us and how deep and long lasting it is.

    Let's hope ECM latches onto something similar..

    Not in the SW regions, I have recorded 244mm in November/December.

    An easterly in week 2 which eventually becomes cold and unstable enough to bring in some snow showers, Good trend this morning across the board were the mid range pattern is more amplified compared to recent days and as such we are now starting to seeing more interest from the second week of January onwards.

    Happy new year to all my fellow cold /snow hunters. No real surprise to see the eye candy charts start appearing as mid Jan moves into model range. 

    The strat and background signals have been screaming mid Jan for cold for weeks now it's just that nwp models are now finally modelling that range. Nice to both GFS and ECM make the switch at the same time.

    The UK is geographically part of Europe, not a separate entity, there is no us and them in that sense. Not good for cold weather fans in Western France or the iberian peninsula either according to the UKMO

    ECM is clearly awesome this morning with an easterly next week.  GFSp isn’t too bad either with snow over high ground in the north as our high shifts west and an then an unstable northerly sets in for the week after brining snow to many (a lot like the meto outlook)

    Nice to see BOOM charts from EC for a change though the op was a cold outlier in later stages for London

    SSW / reversal at 10 hPA / 65N starting today, so will be initialised in starting data of runs today, but how they model the trop response is another matter!

    The ECM 0z looks unlikely from a synoptic perspective in FI. It breaks a lobe of HP from the Arctic heights and sends it to Scandi to enable a link with heights in the Atlantic. The draining of even fledgeling heights from the pole would not be expected and for them to drain to Scandi is a tall ask!

    Looking at the mean at D10:

    1822299157_EDM1-240(1).thumb.gif.4bd54ef1ad0c3ae92c9f299672a52e85.gifECM1-240.thumb.gif.a6775f3f0ceaee986f0a5d7d7f497cde.gif

    and this is backed up. Maybe a typical ECM D10 random chart but too early to bin yet.

    The GEFS remain at the point of a few potential members but no trend for anything concrete pattern wise.

    My opinion is that we need wave 2 action in the Pacific to assist the other background signals. All the GEFS showing promise have the -PNO signal and the lack of this pattern is becoming a concern. It is showing in the mean at the end of FI but that is 15 days away:

    gensnh-21-1-384.thumb.png.672b6e21a9e161daef9321d549288b20.png

    A Happy New Year to all.

    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)
