Model output discussion - into Christmas

Recommended Posts

Just look at the size and extent of the high pressure to our south, SW and SE. It is huge and is now, almost, a semi-permanent feature that has given us very warm winters for years now (2009-2013 aside). But, also, generally, pretty warm summers too, especially down here in the south

Bearing this winter and last in mind, does the low solar output = cold winter theory need a serious re-visit? Or is it too early for that. I can't help thinking other changes in climate are over-riding all current theories

Merry Christmas to all European followers from mild Slovakia.Short cold snap on the way here from 26 to 30.12 and then our friend high pressure returns 🙂

Grim stuff. Wet or drizzly, varying degrees (pardon the pun) of mild and frost/fog free, let alone snow free. High pressure looking stable to the south, PV looking comfy in Greenland. Early October conditions

Merry Xmas from the weather gods!

Only 1 or 2 cold January's (IMBY) from 1988 onwards and now the first half of next month is being modelled in a way that gives us another insult of a 'winter' spell. I might need to find another winter hobby!

Merry Christmas to everyone and have a great 2020 whatever the weather

Yes, topplers are possible into the NY..

The only NY cold likely is in NYC ! 🤣

Will this lead to more explosive cyclogenesis powering up the jet for more of the same for us or could it push up a decent mid Atlantic ridge inducing a deep meridonal flow if the cold digs far enough south over the eastern seaboard??

Well no point in sugar coating it’s drab!!

Good summary

Desperate, desperate stuff. That's it for me until the weekend I think. Nothing is going to change quickly so, hopefully, by the 28th/29th something a bit more positive is being forecast

Have a good one everyone

I’ve seen charts change at the flick of a switch. 2012-13 we was in a similar position to this. I remember it well. Endless raging PV showing right through towards the end of January, only then for a scandi high to appear in the mid timeframes. 

At least with the cold being locked in, if we see Northern blocking occur during late January into February, we should see some impressive cold released into the mid latitudes.

So for most of us there'll be no lamppost watching during the festive countdown. Fortunately, NORAD satellites have picked up something else worth tracking 😁🎅

Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings to all fellow weather geeks and huge thanks to one and all for a great forum.

Some glimmer of hope there maybe on the 06z.

Pity that the PV is getting it's act together just as the Scandi high is trying to set up. Greece and Turkey look likely to get the snow again, but Capracotta in Southern Italy might just miss out on its usual 6ft of snow this time round.

138-780IT.thumb.gif.ec5285103c37c8dd0e8ab24872b03d69.gif

Anyway, at least we are saving on heating bills, makes up for November when I had the heating on high for much of the month. So lets see what turns up after the holidays, more than two months of Winter to go, and then the fun usually starts in March/April so lots to look forward to.

Have a lovely Christmas everyone, chill out and have a fab time, I will drink a toast tomorrow to all the fantastic people on netweather for good heath, prosperity, and a white outlook in the new year!

I remember it well... @dramatic flip! Although it’s a rarity these days. And with dynamic such as this @500 geo out to 7 January it’s a poor prospect!

Have a look at those 850hpa upper temps over Greenland, Canada and Alaska at +384 hours on the 06Z GFS run.

gfsnh-1-384.thumb.png.e1141f4d42f9b7a688ff9bab76de3a05.png

Don't think I've ever seen the -40C isotherm above those areas since I first saw these charts. Even Siberia is struggling to be cold on this run at the end

Look at the 850hpa anomalies that go along with this chart

gfsnh-15-384.thumb.png.526a3d1c04cb27a155e4b1cfcb8e9847.png

Look at all the deep blue with 20C below normal in parts of Alaska, Greenland and Canada and all that red over mainland USA, Europe and Siberia with most of these areas 8 to 12C above normal at 850 hpa. Grim for cold lovers.

Time for a break from the model watching. Happy Christmas to all fellow weather geeks! Hopefully we’ll get some eye candy in a few days time when I return.

Were this to verify, I wonder what the absolute maximum would be, and where...17C in NE Wales?:help:

If it was sunny then maybe, but itll be rather overcast i think, mild southwesterlies at this time of the year usually are.

Check that swathe of  milder air up the US East Coast, Christmas in a balmy New York ...Having done Christmas in New York with 14 inches of snow, I think I know which I prefer. Well let's see what the New Year turns in, TBH, given the current model outlooks,it wont change, with only possible short scale colder spells possible as the NH train just keeps a comin... Anyway, good luck to all on here, may your forecast be what you wish for...

Unfortunately, from looking at all of the models, there won't be any snow on Christmas Day.

However, some places (especially Scotland) might wake up to some morning frost tomorrow!

So technically, it is and isn't a white Christmas at the same time! ;)

As expected and very well forecast 4 weeks ago, well above temperatures in the whole of Europe this Christmas....

Hopefully he doesn't nearly get shot down like what happened last year😮:santa-emoji: As for cold, best check back in 10 days from now as the current outputs sucks, like having noro virus at christmas. Merry Christmas

well we have gefs with a warming,

gfs has warming but not as much as gefs.

and the jma sees this to.

but the vortex is nothing but a monster this season.

cant see any warmings stopping it from dominating.

and zonal is an understatement.

but at times ok for scotland though.

Oh come on, semi permenant feature? If anything charts like this has been a rarity and it seems like too me the med(especially the western med) has been more stormy during that timeframe than perhaps in the past, I certainly seen less bartlett highs in the charts than not. 

Anyways, high pressure to the south, low pressure to the north is a perfectly normal weather pattern to witness, its one of those things, plenty time still for cold wintry weather to occur. 

In terms of how cloudy this set up will be, I think the most cloudy weather will be for more northern and western areas whereas further south and east could see more sunshine although any fog risk will scupper that. The highest temperatures will be the further northwards and westwards also, be interesting what temperatures will be reached if the fohen affect comes into play.
