    The low you need to keep an eye on is the one over the central north USA at day 6 .

    The big 3 fail to agree on its amplitude , the GFS is the flattest with that , the ECM more amplified , the UKMO the most amplified .

    NCEP currently favour slower solutions which means the more amplified solutions .

    The game goes on ,but tomorrow's update could be different again .The warming as taken place ,I'm sure we will soon see some brilliant charts appearing, unexpected ,sudden ,mind blowing output . I'm up the wood shed right now ,it's freezing ,frost as just melted ,we await this evening's output, STELLAS all round gang. 

    It was always going to be the end of January middle of February maybe sometime in March ?

    The musings of these great forecasters and weather gurus now appear at variance to the Met Office boffins with the cold and chance of snow pushed out to month end as opposed to mid month. Will be interesting to see what occurs.

    Yes, we must remember that the Exeter boys - not the forum amateurs - are there for a reason ?

    Meto update re cold being pushed further back once again. Remember that it was originally progged for the beginning of January. As I mentioned previously, once these super HP cells settle over our shores they are incredibly difficult to shift, meandering here and there like a duck on a choppy pond, but still on the scene all the same. 

    Remember, this SSW could sail by with little or no impact at all. The westerly phase of the QBO could also be a signal to mild, hence why the Meto are stalling. 

    In the meantime, plenty of useable weather with calm benign conditions so not a lot to grumble about at all.

    Happy New Year everyone ?

    Further to my post this morning with the usual 500 mb anomaly charts. They do 'appear' to show some slight shift towards a build of heights NW of the UK. No more than that. As well some of you do need to remember that a SSW does 'not' ensure a cold outbreak of any length for the UK.

    For anyone interested it and the links are on page 200 I think?

    The GSFP has been reasonably consistent in showing colder conditions from mid-month, which is still 2 weeks away.  Had the MetO been absolutely spot in in their forecasts previously, I might pay more attention.  As it is, mid-month is not without interest and those writing off cold until Feb are being a little hasty IMO.

    FV3 and GFS are not on the same wave length.

    GFS disintegrates a 1045mb Arctic high as soon as it hits low res and sends it packing South to Canada.

    GFSFV3 enhances it to 1050mb which splits the Siberian vortex and develops a x polar flow and bingo we are in the game

    Reminder again that at this exact stage in Feb the models flipped from showing the jackpot to us not getting anything one day/one run to the next. 

    Stay calm guys. Will be a good few days yet before the models have a grip on the SSW fully

     

    run to run there were some variances but as i recall, most had the scandi amplification after the 7th feb (ssw came 11th) - what didn't change was the 30 dayer which was steadfast on easterlies - so glosea  didn't waver and looking back to the ec46 runs from the end jan/early feb, seems they were keen on euro trough with HLB

    Anyone have thoughts on Dr Cohen's latest post? Seems ok to my (amateur) eyes. I asked him his thoughts on the possibility of HLB building in the vortices gap around Greenland and he said "I think so."

    No MJO update for the ECM today . Something weird happened with it , can’t link as on iPad but take a look at the site and you’ll see what I mean !

    It has the signal in phase 2 shooting at a hundred miles an hour into phase 6 . This is completely wrong so we don’t know where it really is .

    Yes, I see what you mean. I think the start position is phase 2 is a programme error, it should start in phase 6 which I think is correct then moves swiftly through a low amplitude 7 & 8 before entering the COD. Given the low amplitude anyway I don't think it will be helping too much in maintaining a mid Atlantic ridge.

    There’s still uncertainty as to what happens as the MJO moves into phase 7. We’ll need to wait a few days .

    Well if it can't get starting position i have little faith what it shows late on low amplitude are not..

    The amplitude is not great but it has increased than previous days.

    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)
