    ECM looks quite interesting at 144, could see HP trying to build back in for the south...

    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

    Looks a brief breakdown, then better ECM T144:

    I'm expecting this to be the story throughout July now, some call it the NW/SE split, but I'm just seeing settled periods interspersed with unsettled or thundery breakdowns, but I guess that's because I live in the south!

    Really uninspiring fayre on offer on tonight’s 12z runs....succession of low pressures rolling in off the Atlantic from Friday onwards, with only fleeting drier spells. Looks more like October than the height of summer!

    You know what they say summer time is May-June in far north, I can understand that looking at ECM! Really awful run for Scotland wet, and very cool.

    Think our definitions of high pressure must be different Zak! ?

    This isn’t good. At all. Low pressure starting to get pinned close to the UK with high pressure wedged to the NW and SE. We will end up with the washing machine treatment of lows trundling around for a while I feel.

    The weather charts obviously listen in on Boris update today... let’s ruin the UK economy from 4th July... so hope it’s wrong

    As I said before, there is so much scatter in some of the ensembles. I don't think there is any cause for concern just yet.

    I agree mike. The 240 chart is just crazy, and nothing like the ensembles at all.

    The issue is that there is no strong signal for any pattern, so we seem to be seeing a plethora of solutions going forward.

    I'm waiting for this much touted AAM to kick in.

    I haven’t seen many charts posted about the potentially thundery breakdown on Friday, an explosive ? end to our little hot spell so here is the Gfs 12z operational runs take on it!!!???️⛈️☀️

    Thank you for posting this, I have been wondering how explosive Friday will be around Yorkshire.

    So am I!  I can only post the CFS AAM plot, because none others are available to the general public.  Anyway, CFS actually looking very good bringing AAM to average within days and bullish thereafter:

    image.thumb.jpg.b5faf5985b18bcf2549fa7f000cd8f63.jpg

    But with the 12z suite tonight, don't believe anything beyond T96 at the moment, and there are differences at even T96.  Very volatile situation, I try to put the later stages of the individual runs through a filter of 'is this a likely evolution', and to be honest in most model runs it is 'no'!  But the weather still has to do something....we will see...

    I suppose the algorithms, when there are weak signals, will default to more of a zonal westerly pattern, which is of course very typical for our location.

    As I mentioned earlier, CFS has a known positive bias with AAM. Here’s the equivalent ECM forecast, which is completely different.

    That is like saying SE England never gets any decent snowfall in January or February. ?

    I do agree about the ECM run being awful though for up here.

    Very wet indeed!

    Tell you what though I am looking forward to Thursday! ??

    Bring on this brief blast of heat and risk of thunderstorms already! (Thursday/Friday IMBY) 

    That is what Summer is all about for me. 

    Have a good night everyone! ?

    Yes, I agree. Certainly GFS /ECM going for a trough dominated Atlantic to evolve next week, apart from the UKMO that pushes a Azores Ridge over Southern Britain  early next week.. Could be a N/S divide without full blown Atlantic . Who would you put your money/ hunch on  ? Maybe another twist in the morning /

    I've never bought this idea, the models just model the physics, not the defaults.  They don't know what that means locally.  It is just that uncertainty is large at the moment, FI is somewhere between T72 and T96 at the moment, so best to enjoy the rest of this week, everyone, before worrying about the one after!  Mea culpa, I know, but we are living in very odd times!

    But surely as of today 23 June, they should match, they don't

    image.thumb.jpg.6ce1f2d56aa86b4b5a2cfb91f987f321.jpg

    Is the ECM a prediction from the start of June by any chance?  In which case, I would argue it has been overtaken by events and proved wrong!!

    By the way, can you give me a link to the ECM AAM charts, please?

    It isn’t from the start of June - it’s a forecast from today. I’m not sure why they don’t match to be honest! Maybe someone with a better understanding could tell me why?

    I think the issue so far is that we've seen the AO and NAO drift more towards -ve as T-0 has approached. This has been happening for a few weeks and was expected given we are in a solar minimum summer. The charts showing a strong +NAO and associated strong Azores ridging are watered down nearer the time, with the Atlantic troughing getting closer to the UK than initially looked likely.

    On an aside, it stands us in good stead going into winter...

    So overall, the weekend looks pretty unsettled and increasingly windy. However we may get a respite at the start of the following week with some sort of ridge moving in from the south west (probably more a NW/SW split but still temperatures probably returning to the mid-twenties by Tuesday). However I suspect the form horse on the weather type will be something close to average in pretty much every way as we move into July.

    That’s interesting - I’ve read a fair bit of pessimism regarding winter with the failed eQBO and it going back westerly again.

    Well it obviously isn't reproducing your chart:

    image.thumb.jpg.9033c1ac7c7a5002e3cc7d1ec463531a.jpg

    The different runs diverge from ages ago!!  Probably from some runs weeks ago, I would suggest.
