This is turning into a 💩 winter again. My New Years resolution is to count P18 down to T0 😎

Indeed, I got a few good ones too. How about this lot, never noticed them earlier with all the New Years celebrations.

New Year.....New start with the models, chins up I think things will start to get a lot better from now on for us coldies (warning this might be the drink talking). 😅🍻

The GFS 18z follows this so not sure where met office forecast of very mild for first half of jan is coming from.

They have all been out drinking, still dreaming of Euro highs I guess. We are ahead of the curve on here!😂

Anyway, who's staying up for the first runs of the year and the decade then??????

We are expecting some mega model watching in 2020!🤩

Great to see just for fun are those charts - but unless more members go for that setup and they all get into the reliable timeframe, looking at them for fun is all they are sadly.

Yes sadly the mild ENS are the ones that almost always verify, we are well and truly conditioned to this fact. But as my old dear uncle used to say, things can go wrong a hundred times but then just once you get lucky.😉

Happy New Year to you all.

New Year, new prospect of cold? Sadly not, but the long term GEFS mean is hinting at a pressure rise to our East in FI, and a few take the heights up into the North or Scandy. Lets see how that plays out !! 
 

The severe Winter of 1947 started on Jan 23rd, something like that will do 😬

Looking at the D8-D16 GFS op and nothing good there, in fact the de facto Winter spoilers and as bad as it gets for eating the winter away:

anim_dyn0.gif

The tPV in the worse place possible, the omnipresent Russian High that this winter has been of no help. A Pacific high that oscillates sending wedges into higher lats on the wrong side of the NH, keeping the tPV locked into the absolute worse place for height rises in Greenland or Scandi. Watch those HP cells generated from the Pacific keep the upstream flat, enabling the westerly zonal washout.

It is hard to imagine a flip from here given the lack of a cohesive MJO signal, no tropical forcing and the strat unlikely to help in the medium term? It certainly looks like we have to look for Feb/March for anything wintry. Here's hoping!

Happy New Year to all.

Happy New Year to all .🎅

The models though lack much festive cheer .

The GFS op is ghastly for cold with a tightly coiled PV . The ECM though towards day ten is not terrible , we are dealing with least worst so compared to the GFS horror show for coldies the former at least disrupts the PV and tries to drop a trough south into Scandi .

Whether that lasts till tonight is another matter !

I think being realistic we need to write off the first half of January and just accept it’s not going to happen for anything remotely interesting in terms of cold and snow .

As for the second half of the month we need to see whether there’s any mileage in the PV disrupting as shown by the ECM , and even if that does happen how long that lasts for .

Thanks for the info. I noticed debilt went cold later on. I guess the control run was one of the scandi highs? 

Yes it was 🙂

The best we can salvage from the strong westerly onslaught, as the strong jet and low heights of the PV over Greenland shunt increasingly south over the Atlantic is some cold zonality. GFS ops been advertising this over recent runs, albeit in the medium range - which it has a well-known cold bias in that timeframe. If UK can get north of the jet, as T+198 shows below, then we may at least get some snow potential for the north, particularly hills. But, we need to get the jet south and also wary of the GFS op cold bias.

Otherwise little in the way of crumbs of comfort for snow lovers for now.

And is again ......it’s all the coldies have to hang their hats on mid month onwards .........mid Atlantic trough extension from tpv  and downstream sceuro ridge is the broad pattern and within that, a scandi ridge could happily sit ....... but the polar profile would have to play ball to help amplification  ......

Another day and the first day of January and the New Year, with still nothing in the models suggesting any pattern that could bring a significant cold spell to the UK.  If close to solar minimum and with a neutral ENSO we cannot salvage something out of this winter in terms of a significant cold spell in the UK, then it is hard to believe we ever can again.  I know that in winters 2013-14 to 2016-17 background signals were less favourable for patterns to develop that can bring cold to the UK, but if low solar activity and neutral ENSO cannot deliver something then what can?

Mentioned this a number of times but the winters of 1911-14 were not brilliant and that was during a very deep solar minima. Next great winter was 1916-17 and that was very near solar maximum

So the first two weeks of january are according to the models another  writer-off for bitterly cold weather arriving.

Thats another winter gone then  with a chance of seeing bitterly cold weather arriving at the coldest time of the year then.

Still time for one decent cold outbreak,let’s hope for st least a sign even for a change in the outlook from Mid- Jan onwards.

Refuse to believe we can go 3 whole months with this pattern locked in,whatever the seasonal models are showing.

JET digging south a little, Scottish ski resorts should smile at this - should it happen

The 06z gfs has interest .....the runner is a bit too deep but I guess if it wasn’t then it would be further south and of no interest whatsoever !

Then some cold zonality followed by that big height rise to our ne ...... some continuity on this would be good !

ECM OP was a mild outlier for most of the latter stages of the run,done that a lot this winter,so perhaps gfs is onto something.

The GFS 06Z op reminds me of the southerly tracking low that brought a surprisingly widespread snowfall on 22 January 1988:

image.thumb.png.c99fa5d432bf81f44ef2a4bb6e88a843.png

But I agree with Nick F about the GFS cold bias at that time range, particularly with regards over-egging cold incursions from the north-western quarter of the compass.

GFS ends high pressure dominance and brings a pin ball low over the south of U.K. which if it ever came off

could bring that magical white stuff.Something to keep all cold fans interested .

Oh poo! Y'all're no doubt be surprised to learn that that channel-running LP has virtually no support at all from the GEFS (Londonshire) ensembles!:shok::oldgrin:

And neither (thanks TWS!) does the 'colder' outlook, in general...Och well, that's Happy Hour done with, for another day?:drunk:

Yeah, I was hoping for a bit of support but nothing!! The Op is more powerful than the ENS though, so could lead the change

GEFS operational 2 meter temp for London keeps around or below 5c for more than 7 days not bad let’s hope

its showing the right way more than the ensembles.

Yes a clear outlier, here are the ENS for London and Milan that demonstrate this.

The models have really struggled with the low pressure down towards southern Italy. GFS had the low over Northern Italy the other day but has now shifted it eastwards over Greece, ECM had the low even further east for a while closer to Turkey.

gfs-0-120.thumb.png.9da3e97cbea041cd063f93a82b84d49b.png

So both models were way out. I know that GFS usually gets knocked but in the end it was a blend of the two, and UKMO, that was close to the correct solution, although UKMO had been running with the ECM. Shame we don't have a model that takes input from the big three and does a mean, although I think someone said that the ICON sort of does this.
