Model Output Discussion - heading into April


Recommended Posts

Models at least in the reliable on the same page, high pressure will be forced to move west in the days ahead as we a trough feature move down from the north, pulling in cold air and possible wintry showers by end of the weekend, with notable wind chill and cold uppers it will feel more akin to mid winter than late March.

Into next week differences being shown in the position of heights to our west, UKMO suggesting they won't advect far enough westwards and after an initial cold east/ne flow its back to something a bit more average with the cold flow cut off, however, ECM and GFS showing some marked trough development to our north again, and a plunge of bitter arctic air set to sweep south, with a deep trough feature to our east.

So shades of late March 2008 - early April 2008 in the models today when we had two late season winter spells, both with snow - not saying this is what will verify but interesting to note, and that came on the back of a predominantly mild snowless winter. Indeed winter has had a habit of showing its face late March - early April in a number of years following on from very mild preety snowless winters, 1975, 1989, 1990, 1998 and 2008 to name a few.

Hi Gang ,certainly some welcome rain for some this week ,cooler just to remind us that its only mid Spring ,but a signal for a warm up again later in the extended charts .Right gang i havent posted mu

As a brief update, this is still the case ?     The perspective of this apparent "pattern change" requires being seen as a snapshot in time on current NWP modelling - not a prediction for the who

Sorry for the slight off topic mods but if you don't mind... I am so so glad that you have found a companion mate after your loss and i wish you all the best for the future whether it be a new lo

There is certainly a pattern emerging in the models out to day ten looking at the mean 500mb height and 850 temp anomaly's from the gefs/eps with regarding a ridge into Greenland/NE Canada with trough into N Europe

GFS 18z seems to be moving slightly towards the UKMO evolution correct me if I'm wrong? The high looks closer to our West less window for Eastern areas to see some showers

It always happens, any cold gets delayed by a day or two then is pushed further and further east as we enter the reliable and ends up going down in the long list of close but no cigar events. It may adjust back west on tomorrows runs but I wouldn't bank on it.

Probably can on this occasion!

As soon as the UKMO starts to back away, expect the other models to follow.  Always happens!

True. Maddening, the models were in full agreement for a few days, GEM 1st, then the ECM and GFS, the GFS ens showing full support, then JMA......

Some people keep saying, just stick to UKMO to T120 if your hunting for cold in the UK, the rest is just hot air, I make them right.

Places from Dover to Brighten on the south coast may get some sort of snow streamer running along the channel. Ens for Dover there, can't even go for a drive down that way right now though with whats going on....?

Spring may be here at the moment Don, but come the weekend its gonna be a shock to the system.... Much colder air in place with an increasing risk of Wintry showers, and that could mean snow too. So make the most of the next couple of days if you like these warm conditions, you may need those ice scrapers come the weekend. It's a good ECM tonight and quite a cold mean... Not to concerned about the 18z,even though it does show some snow this weekend... The UKMO is a bit of a concern, but not overly so, and could quite easily back Westwards tomorrow.

Well, well, well. I haven't done these type of posts in a while. Here we go again! ?

A very fine and dry looking day tomorrow. Unbroken sunshine is likely for the majority of the British Isles.

Wednesday morning

On Wednesday morning, the majority of England and Wales will be treated to a fine, sunny morning. The only exception is the far north of England/Scotland/Northern Ireland, where instead, they could wake up to a cloudy and perhaps wet morning. 

Frost is possible in the south, were temperatures should be near freezing, and perhaps dipping below freezing in some areas.

Temperatures in the morning in the south should range from 0-7c, and in the north they should range from 3-9c.

Wednesday afternoon

On Wednesday afternoon, some of the rain and cloud over Ireland, Scotland and northern England will linger into the afternoon, becoming a wet afternoon in these areas.

Elsewhere, it will be sunny. Unbroken sunshine is likely, but high level whisps of cloud can't be ruled out. 

Due to the unbroken sunshine, the temperatures will rise very quickly where sunshine is forecast. It will be a very mild, perhaps warm, day tomorrow in the afternoon, with temperatures in the south ranging from 12-17c, and 7-13c in the north.

Wednesday evening

On Wednesday evening, it is the exact same picture as it is on Wednesday afternoon. Unbroken sunshine possible in some southern areas, with northern areas seeing cloud and rain into the evening and overnight. 

If you live in a place where sunshine is likely, then the sunlight being reflected off the high level cloud could lead to some pretty cool sunsets!

Temperatures in the south in the evening and overnight should range from 3-8c, and in the north, they should range from 3-7c.
