I cant hibernate, im off to bognor regis on monday for a week.. Nice looking charts coming into play the week after my holiday  though. 

Sorry about that, not the bognor Regis bit, but the weather 😉 that's pretty typical though, you picked a very unfortunate week there... Hopes there's plenty to do indoors... If your into water sports, you will be quids in... 😜👍

A very mixed bag but some high pressure and heat potential in there..even some spaghetti!👍😜

The ecm has a low 977mb near the southern tip of Ireland at 0600 Wednesday with rain from the associated front into Wales and the west country. By midday Thursday it is 983mb over East Anglia with the UK encompassed with the circulation and a very showery day. By midday Friday the UK is still within the circulation but the subtropical high is amplifying to the south west.

Looking at the Ecm 12z I have a good feeling about what it will show beyond T+192 hours 👍..

Let's take stock at T240.  Are the models smelling the sugar free Red Bull?   Here's the GEM, GFS, FV3 and ECM, some consensus building around the middle of the month....

ECM best of the bunch, which is good, and consistent with UKMO heavily caveated statements re the middle of May - looks good to me.

Sigh.... you keep going on about record lows yet you do not say what these are or suggest what the minima could be. Though Friday will be cold it is not record breaking and Sunday and Monday may not even be too bad. You make every cold spell sound a lot more dramatic then what it actually is... I don't think anyone will put down April's bitterly cold easterly in their meteorological highlights.

Cold yes but not exceptional, May 1996 and 1997 had colder spells. The colder output for next week on the GFS has eased but there remains some uncertainty about what happens after the mid-week low moves from west to east.

Finally the cold over Europe isn't representative of the global picture and some more exceptionally mild weather in the arctic alongside this northern blocking.

Evening . youre jumping the gun, once again! The cold spell is brought by a potent Artic blast, given any clear spells cold records will be challenged , its just starting as the artic cold front moves south, lets see what the stats are in a couple of days....😎

A while since I looked at the CFS. As always it's worth noting the model needs to be treated probabilistically, one run is meaningless, so viewing several runs in the round, here are the latest 8 for June Z500 anomaly:

image.thumb.jpg.6043e758100790f83fdf502aa82f9e4b.jpgimage.thumb.jpg.96c1a43bfa664bbe3516ca66b4be55ac.jpg

Reds near the UK yes, but variable position.  Here's July:

My take from this, across both months, high pressure dominates in the vicinity of the UK but there is some considerable uncertainty over where - and probably variability with time given these are monthly mean charts.  Which suggests to me hot spells yes, but thundery breakdowns also.  In fact not so far from my earlier suggestions about summer made in this thread shortly after winter ended, I haven't really changed my views to be honest.  

Current thoughts re summer: hotter spell from mid-May, then cycle of warm spells with thundery breakdowns with the warm spells taking hold until mid July.   Then a slow slide to the cloudy slightly muggy August we know and don't love.   We'll see!

This last chart is rogue -it shouldn't be here!

I think in fairness to anyweather he did actually predict some record low temps in April, so perhaps he wasn't that far out regarding the set up, just the timing, I suppose there could be some really low minimums in places under clear skies, so I will give him a bit of credit for that... 👍

The ext EPS this evening continues to emphasis the pattern change that has been indicated for the last two or three days. That is a disappearance of TPV and a weakening of the European trough as it is relegated south to the eastern Mediterranean allowing the subtropical high to amplify north towards the UK. This results in the not too strong upper flow to back south westerly with temps trending above average. Any systems tracking east would probably only effect the north west  NOAA trending that way if not quite so bullish with the amplification of the high

He has stuck his neck on the line with some bold predictions, and I think that in itself takes guts, he has also teken some stick, not sure if that bothers him or not, but I hate to see anybody taking grief.. 👍

Please clarify what records you're referring to.

The lowest May minimum in the UK is -9.4°C in Norfolk and the lowest May maximum is 1.6°C shared by Braemar and Knockanrock. They'll take some beating!

PS: I'm still waiting for those violent thunderstorms.

I think he brings it on himself to be honest, he doesn't need your sympathy! One thing you will never see him do is make a prediction about warm or hot weather. Only outrageous predictions about cold or rain, with the primary aim of winding people up.

Spring really is the most wonderful time of the year! 

I am looking forward to a glorious Summer filled with heat and thunderstorms - hopefully the long range models and thoughts of respected members on here come true! 

Have a good weekend everyone!
