These sort of comments are ridiculous if I may say so 10 days into meteorological summer, really!

The upcoming period has been well advertised, as a changeable flatter downstream spell of weather, and for the forthcoming period at least, the pattern stays amplified across the Pacific c/o low frequ

That is a somewhat parochial assessment if I may say so.    As posted recently, these numerical model products derive data from some of the algorithms used in what is called the Global Synoptic Dynami

    I think you are trying to have your unsettled cake and eat it in that post!

    A trough over the U.K. is always a threat, even in settled summers! But I get what he is saying.

    The mean, apart from it being a bit more unsettled this Weekend is pretty good for the bulk of the next 10 day's.. Decent warm conditions to the South, but nothing to write home about in the far North... Typical Summertime set up in all honesty. ?

    With reference to Damianslaw post above, I see nothing for Southerners to get to downhearted about.. If your much further North like his location and further North, its just average. ?

    Hopefully I will bring you an EC46 update later.. ?

    Definitely some warmth building there, GFS picked up on it too...

    I like that the D10 mean has that trough deepening off Newfoundland. Mean doesn’t really have a Greenland high at that range either, so let’s hope it’s sniffing something out.

    Who is winning in the battle of the means, ECM and parallel T168:

    No score draw there, T240:

    Parallel just edging it there, more positively tilted jet on the mean?

    There's clearly signs of possibly more settled weather developing as seen on the 8-10 day 500mb mean chart. Mainly more settled and warmer for the south though.

    Definitely doesn’t look nationwide away from far south or much impetus to really build in, quite poor and cool as a matter of fact for N UK. Similar to ECM 12z the trough on a NW>SE axis which ain’t good for us in NW Europe, the AO is going negative while this doesn’t mean we are destined to see bad weather, it makes life harder. I don’t think July will start badly for most of us, but the chance of heat seems very slim to me.

    Maybe. But things seem to be changing so quickly at the moment, and there doesn’t seem to be any really strong signals. I think there is as good a chance of hot weather as not.

    Even last week, there was a thread on here saying 30C was very unlikely this June, and it was broadly supported by modelling. I get the feeling that this summer will be very hard to pin down. Don’t think it will be a washout though.

    Out to week 3 with EC46 and there remains a fair bit of fine weather with ridges building in from the SW at times.. We tend to have lower heights around Iceland and pressure over Greenland tends to be steady, not really high or really low... 1010mb or so. Certainly at this stage am I not seeing a Zonal rut. So it perhaps seems to be carrying on where we left off... Some warm settled spells followed by rinse and repeat but nothing to suggest anything that would be really unsettled and long lasting. ?

    Well , The Navgem tonight wasn’t that great tonight to be honest but keeping up with recent tradition I’ll give This lovely chart.

    Any signs for the start of July? Need to wait a bit longer. ECM has two clusters tonight - Either hideous or heatwave!

    Friday's still looking good, for some thunderstorms, according to the GFS 00Z op. Though, rather worryingly IMO, there's nothing showing on either the NW or the BBC 14-day forecasts -- cooler everywhere, come Sunday::oldgood:

    So, plenty of potential interest if, like yours truly, warm and changeable weather is your thing!:oldgood:

    The GEFS ens look, to me, as if the suggest an alternating pattern (warm to dry to warm again...?) developing, but it's difficult to disentangle as the time-scales vary from ens run to ens run; the SLP ensemble shows this better:?:unsure2:

    Not much rain in there, though, it has to be said!

    NH profiles -- which, thankfully, show no indication of any northern blocking:?

    Hmmm ECM & GFS show a few showers and possibly TS, early Friday morning, Arpege not interested at all in any thundery  breakdown. Usually by now the models would be suggesting on some sort of convective out break through France, I’m not seeing anything like that unfortunately. Feels like the heat will go out with a whimper opposed to a bang....

    Much less promising output this morning, but to be expected. If we look at last nights 12z ecm day 10:

    Versus this morning:

    The key trough alignment out in the Atlantic has changed and is much closer to the UK, with less amplification. Wouldn’t be seeing any high pressure building off today’s chart put it that way.
    As @Man With Beard posted last night, the ensembles were split nearly 50/50 on these two outcomes occurring. Last night we got the good one, this morning the rubbish one.

    Let's see if the 12z runs go back to a more favourable outcome. I bet they do (with no scientific basis behind this theory!)

    Looks like the rest of GB to join the North West in the horrendous Summer weather.

    The CFS had been predicting a decent rise in AAM for sometime but continually backed off and now shows only a moderate rise to around neutral. Not sure why money is spent on this area when it's clearly rubbish at prediction.

    I never understand why people jump on one set of runs, and assume it's a done deal!

    Agree about the CFS though - it is pretty naff!

    CFS has a positive AAM bias. ECM ensembles weren’t ever showing such a rise, and look like being right again.

    Payback model output in full flow this morning, not only does it increasingly look likely we are going to be robbed of a decent thundery breakdown, GFS & GEM ensembles keep a big scatter once we head into July. ECM just stalls the upper trough over UK leaving the low nowhere to go so it just hangs around for days on end, probably not too bad in the inland parts of the south east however pretty naff further north and west you go!

    Thundery breakdown still there on ECM and GFS this morning for Friday?

    I wouldn't say robbed, because we all know that thundery breakdowns are very rare. I never expect them, no matter what the models are showing.

    The big scatter only highlights the uncertainty, so I still think all options are on the table. I certainly wouldn't bank on the 00z runs being correct.

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
