Snow?

Please ensure that the majority of your posts in this thread are model related - a theme of model discussion needs to run throughout.
Some off topic chat and reactions are ok, but please use other, more relevant threads for entirely off-topic chat (such as snow reports, met office forecasts and general chat/moans about the weather or this winter).

For more no banter and just model discussion please head to the new focused model thread - this is also a great place to post (or cross post) your longer model summaries or thoughts around the models.

The output is not looking great at the min but there’s no agreement at T120 on gfs and UKMO96DBF178-054C-45F9-98E4-A3CD9C09299B.thumb.gif.5175e141e0372f232208a86cd2ecba9b.gif52713852-6B65-4820-832A-9291B13687FD.thumb.png.9d8e38615535376d914a0a6a1994bf5c.png

The gfs has more energy around the NW and deeper lows ( not a surprise) . The UKMO has less energy and the lows a lot weaker . That makes them even more apart at T144 . 6370530B-A3C1-4325-854C-2A3030F2A266.thumb.png.94d09bab577b5e8da993d9386163ce9f.pngB0E58200-8608-4B8B-B630-2C0FBDC12BE3.thumb.gif.b8f7839daaf96d479c323add5f0b02d2.gif

The gfs has a deep low  to are north but the UKMO doesn’t . Don’t know why I’ve bothered explaining all this but there’s not a lot else to say really lol 😂

The dross continues this evening .

Utterly loathsome outputs so far from a cold perspective. The PV lobe of death remains limpeted to ne Canada .🤮🤮🤮

The UKMO wouldn’t be so bad if it shifted about 600 miles further south with the jet at day 6 ! 

The GEFS upto day 8 are dreadful bar one straggler.

It can’t get much worse , barring a miracle the next ten days look like a write off for any meaningful cold.

We await the ECM to see what sort of  dross it  delivers!

There was a bit of improvement in the GEFS on the 6z suite, they're back to dross again now.

I agree with most of this, but take issue with the bit in bold, last year was brilliant in that we didn't have a spring, straight from winter to summer, that's how I like it!  I love both the extreme seasons and don't get enthused by either spring or autumn to be honest.  I think we may be looking at an extension of winter into March given the long range models such as CFS and GloSea5.   Fits with the SSW impacts too.

Yep

I’m a winter and summer fan myself. Can’t be arsed with autumn and spring. They’re neither one thing nor the other.

Glad I made the most of the snow during this cold spell, which looks to disappear tomorrow/Monday.  2nd half of February it is, or not!

No wonder met office downgraded their outlook. Just hope they don't get it right for once lol

They had a go but those runs that amplify are always under pressure from upstream which means we see a mid lat ridge about the best result, possibly a bit more latitude. Not worth the analysis at the moment

I don’t remember the MJO forecasts struggling as much in the Pacific sector as they have this year. All model forecasts constantly at odds with each other, if not in direction of travel, then definitely in intensity.

Same back in early January as well.

At least the energy bills will be lower for the next week 👍 Still feel we’re due a cold spell in February with blocking returning ❄️❄️

Tbh,they haven't a clue

Forecasts from met services  beyond 7 days are a waste of time due to being right as often as the proverbial stopped clock

Learned this year that less is known about strat influence than ever and less still about other teleconnections 

Certainly not enough for forecasts

Even Roger Smith's seasonal forecast depended on winds from the north or east and MUCH colder than this last week

Its not going to happen as planned but of course could still in the wasteland dregs of winter

So yeah a lot of dishwashing I think

Back to science and 7 days out only we go (or anyone with sense goes and I don't mean disrespect there because I'll still look too)

Yes, they were a little bit better than i thought, and some were gaining latitude at the end, i do think its worth analysing though, however slim our last chance is, it is our last chance so we need to see some big ridges being thrown up so worthy of the analysis based on desperation and the op runs being the apropos of Jack Onions.

Para thrown up a very good N'ly, could be followed by NE then E flow, either way though, its a big T850 outlier.

Straw to clutch is we have seen the GFS Ops show a similiar trend at this timeframe.
