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.

A poor ECM run.

By day ten no energy heading se and a lack of trough disruption to the west . It’s currently like pulling teeth to get any ridging sufficiently ne .

The last chance saloon is about to close down!  If it wasn’t for the MJO I would already be throwing the towel in on any meaningful cold and snow before winter ends.

Brutal cold spells in March need sensational synoptics unfortunately .

Last year was extremely rare and I can’t see that happening anytime soon . Of course some snow is always possible in March but in terms of meaningful cold and snow that can hang around it has to come really earlier in the month .

I’m not throwing the towel in yet simply because of the MJO, that’s the only thing really at this stage that can deliver a change.

Thats still expected to land in phase 8 . Let’s just say the GFS P was on the money that indeed does follow very close to the composite for the time lagged effect of phase 7 and 8 .

We live in hope !

At least ecmwf isn't stormy in the mid-long term. Anything is better than mild, wet and windy. So at least that's an improvement since yesterday.

Depends on what you class as extremely rare Nick.

2010 December was extremely rare. Once in 100 years

2013 March and 2018 March rare but happenened.

Remember though with the MJO, because it will be months end by the time any blocking occurs, we should be factoring in the much toned down March analogue.

Can't be serious the snowfall couple weeks ago was the best snowfalls in decade in parts of the South if that's the case boy the winters in the South have been absolutely  terrible then.

Yeah, they usually are terrible. Actually, it was more than 2010, 2013 and 2018. It matched 2009 so that equals a decade. I don't know why your trying to argue that.

DEAR MR HIGH PRESSURE 

I am writing today to you to express my total discuss having found out that you have taken up residence in my end of season showroom.

As you know I have not had a good season so far and was hoping to go out with a bang but you are rubbing salt on the wounds.

It also has come to my notice that the heating has gone up thanks to your room mate Southwesterly and this has caused a lot of my clients to complain and even throw towels and toys at me.

Bearing in mind you had a good season last year I let you stay for a good few months and customers were satisfied because of your heat. Now is the wrong time for you my freeze sales have taken a slump. My usual supplier Mr Siberia is unable to  export the ingredients including minus 15 to 20 upper air temperatures and severe windchill as you have sat and blocked the way. 

Now we have had a good relationship last year when you headed in the right direction and I had exceptional end of season profits. 

In view of this I have had good offers from Mr Greenland and Mr Scandinavia who are quite happy to occupy you for the next few weeks so I can have have a chance to boost my end of season sales and win my customers back. My partners ECM, GFS, ICON and CFS will be more than happy to lift you and roll you out there on their new models. 

I hope we can keep our good relationship and you will hand in your tenancy notice in the coming few days, 

Kind regards WINTER SEASON

My one and only snowfall of this winter, in a city, at 60 metres ASL:

Not such a bad winter after all.

How deep and how long did it stay on the ground?

That PV is a total joke, how does it just KEEP strengthening?? The models keep showing signs of it weakening but it simply refuses to do it

20cm on the patio and lasted very nicely and kept its depth well for 2 days. Slow thaw the next day from the sun and was sadly washed away due to heavy rain on the Sunday night. (It fell on Thursday evening) If it hadn't rained it probably would have stayed around for 1 or 2 more days.

Depends what output you use its losing its grip but late in the season again.

That anomaly is barely worth it, wouldn't register as heights at all, however, i haven't got the website than has ENSO composites built in to the MJO analogues outside of winter months so it might be a stronger one with a Nino, it usually is.

So it could be that it’s too late for the MJO to assist with cold during March, although maybe subject to how it reacts with Nino?
