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)

Where are the stats and website that shows the ensembles perform 50% better than the op? Find that hard to believe .No chart at day 10  or day 15 is likely to verify in the first place,which is why many don’t understand why you post day 10 mean charts on ecm and 15 day mean charts on gfs?

Mean anomalies, especially when they are strong, are pretty useful to distinguish broad synoptic features

So lots of ups and downs and jumping on and off is what you're saying? That innuendo is getting closer! ?

I think the fact that yesterday there was a sudden flip in the models in response to the SSW means we can expect to see these kind of runs increase in number but not every run at first. 

I remember the models doing this! Eye candy charts then nothing then back again . I think everyone yesturday got excited because it was the 1st run to show anything after what feels like forever mild weather. So i certainly haven't given up on some nice winter weather

Happy new year all

 

Regardless of what the GFS is showing I think cold is now yes but a waiting game.. 

Great to see that we are not looking at Atlantic dominated weather.. Almost on queue with last year's wintry events.. 

Patience will be rewarded I feel.. 

Note to Eastern regions from tonight will also be Much much cooler than recent days with frost and freezing fog

So I’m coming round now if a little dizzy, not sure if I’m still drunk looking at the models this morning but I’m liking what I’m seeing. Think this point could well be the start of the countdown to some pretty exciting disruptive stuff

... all of a sudden, some notable model output beginning to appear...

Progression of mjo towards favourable tropical forcing phases not to be overlooked here.

I wonder how much Exeter’s jan cold punt was predicated on the MJO and how much on the SSW ????

Happy NY blue, i was pondering this myself TBH the other day...

Is the MJO going to be the main driver as opposed to the SSW?

Still on target this morning acc to Exeter..
