    A 3-4cm covering of snow here in suburban north London, in a PM NW’erly is pretty damn good. Shows how little snow events can pop up at short notice. Much more than was forecast. 

    Models definitely showing a little more interest today. It looks like we have the potential for shorter term upgrades in the output over the next few days.

    If I had a pound for every time someone posted about how good the mean is.....ha?

    On all fairness, the 12z ECM ensembles mean IS good tonight, when people said it was good I wasn't sure, but they were 100% right on that one.

    Now we really do need a good ECM operational tomorrow, because the OP ECM can be pretty problematic once gets its teeth into something, an outlier now may not be that way in 24-36hrs time...

    Anyway I'm interested in how each of the individual ensemble members look, that will be telling.

     those magical words “stonker” 

     

     

    Whenever I type stonker it changes to stinker so I have to type stonker again..really annoying!!:crazy:

    Anyway, overall i'm very happy with the direction we're heading with cold reloads and at least some snow for many..especially further north.?❄️:cold-emoji:

    and having hype(perfectly justified based on the models and info available to us) over a potential cold spell is bad because?

    Because this place is becoming what u read in the newspapers ( we all know what that is) objectivity seems to have gone out the window .

    I'm personally still 0 for 30 years form a NW airflow, but then again the chances always were there for some snow as this was a very cyclonic NW airflow and that trough feature was neat.

    Indeed, that trough should show that just because a set-up doesn't look 'that' snowy, it could become one in a cyclonic airflow, which is highly likely to be the case if we do get the GFS evolution.

    ECM control run out to 29th looks very good, much better than the OP. Rest of the individual members should be out soon so will be good to tell.

    Sadly for us on the south coast we have to wait for our easterly to materialise for any real cold and snow. Hope everyone enjoys the snow atm ?

    The Euro4 was spot on today for here, no other model was showing snow for here other than the Euro4. It done very well in last years snow events up here also.

    The GFS looking great from Tuesday next week onwards with the snow potential pushing further south as we head into Wednesday.

    Control run from the 12z ECM gets better and better, 240hrs looks 100X better than the OP run (probably no surprise given it was a big outlier) and then evolves into a cyclonic easterly, really great run.

    I wonder where that sits on the ensemble range. Hopefully the 00z ECM op run falls inline at least somewhat.

    This could be an omen.....when the recent easterly suddenly disappeared it was the lesser ICON model that first picked it up, around 120 IIRC. Then ECM followed.

     

    Not entirely true. ICON was one of the last to show the easterly, but did show it just before the ECM moved away, and then the ICON flipped back. There was a brief period of a few hours where all the models showed the easterly including the ICON. I don't really buy into this whole ICON being the bee's knees business. The GFS on the other hand was pretty resolute on the easterly for a long time but the parallell was not. I'd probably take the GFSp over the ICON to be honest.

    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.
