    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

    Even the worst summers for storms have some kind of decent plume at some point. July 15th - 31st being the most likely time for it.

    I Can't see the Azores high making it or a Spanish plume this summer. 

    I recalls that similar things were said last year.

    We are approaching a low point in the falling of AAM - which ties in with the more unsettled regime of June thus far. CFS shows a steady recovery now well into July, which would usually favour an improvement. One to watch.

    ECM completes a disappointing set. Warmer air never makes it, trough closer, and Atlantic starting to push through. More showers around too, especially further n and W.

    Although there will be lots of local variations for the next few days, as a broad brush statement the UK now looks set to miss out - just - on what could have been a very warm period, with low pressure to the SW just about close enough to keep things unsettled. It isn't a worst case scenario, except maybe in Cornwall & Devon, which would have been to have the trough sat on top of us for 6 days, leading to the summer nightmare of continual rain and a chill in the air. We're still far enough away from the centre of the low to allow at least a little warmer air from the south/east to get into our circulation. So I think there will be some good, warm weather around (low 20Cs I'd expect), but never too far from trouble. Perhaps a 6 out of 10 weekend, if we're scoring it! Some areas in Scotland may have a much better weekend than south of the border.

    Signs continue to look reasonable positive for finer weather between D7 and D14, especially further S and E - many ECM ensembles this morning have a fresh ridge of the Azores High towards the UK - but not conclusive enough at this point.

    Indeed. We had a terrible June, and then broke the all time temperature record in July.

    Unfortunately this morning the stars haven’t aligned....look at this water transport chart. Even on Tuesday the air is soaked with moisture, so it doesn’t look dry at all now. Most of Western and Central Europe actually looks quite wet in the foreseeable:92B8CFA2-77F5-422A-8AAC-F0D262C8E87C.thumb.jpeg.fe8d32e03ce5bcdf5b2e0f72bd41ef53.jpeg

    Surprised no comment on the gfs!!!actually take that back i am NOT surprised as its the worst model out of the top 3!!anyway just for the heck of commenting on gfs 06z its an absolute beauty at 144 hours with a strong high and heat across the uk!!although we know its probably wrong at just 48 hours out?

    Morning all

    Just caught up with the ECM:

    anim_swg0.gif
     

    anim_cmy6.gif

    I would say the outlook is...alright? I had very high hopes for up here a few days ago (blue sky galore and temperatures in the mid-twenties) but that has now been watered down to the high teens/low twenties for this weekend with the risk of thundery downpours. (I will bank that though!)

    Heatwave about to commence in many parts of Norway/Sweden/Finland for seven to ten days at least on current output - Oslo would be a good place to be! 

    So at the moment no flaming June or proper sustained heat for the UK and Ireland - decent short term outlook though for the majority with respectable temperatures and plenty of convective weather on offer. 

    Only ten days into Meteorological Summer...plenty of time for the good stuff to arrive! (Plumes, 30C + days, severe thunderstorms ect ect - if you are a fan of that type of weather of course!) 

    All the best to you all.

    Still nothing to nasty lurking in the extended ECM mean out to June 25th..pressure nudging 1020mb and the mean temperature around 8.5c. So it could be a lot worse.

    Met office warning for rain now out for the SW England and SW Wales....50-70mm possible in a few places in the next day.

    Dire forecast from today's GFS 06Z: single-figure temps and endless torrential rain...Oh, hang on, make that 25C with copious amounts of strong June sunshine...Easy mistake to make!:oldlaugh:

    It does look good. Hard to give it more credence than ECM/UKMO, but hopefully this will be one of those times the GFS has seen something the ECM/UKMO has not. To be fair, the UKMO didn't look too different to this GFS yesterday.

    Only last week, even in the past few days though when it was predicting poor weather it was to be ignored (even scraped was the call from some) as was only the 4th best model. So is GFS only the 4th best model at predicting bad weather? This is generalization, not a question solely directed at yourself. The output is undeniable, looks a million times better than some of the other output from this morning but there lies the problem I guess, it's not really the form pony.

    'Dance of the weekend lows' continues to be a forecasting headache for the weekend, I see. ECM might well have led the way on the true path where the older low lifts out northward and sets up a standoff between westerlies and easterlies for a few days - but it's not a done deal yet.

    For (an extreme) example, ICON has been steadfast on the western low never getting involved at all. It's so far from all the other models! Imagine if it had this nailed... that'd be kind of hilarious - and hugely embarrassing for the likes of ECM, UKMO and GFS ?.

    icon-0-66.png?10-06 icon-0-114.png?10-06

     

    It appears it would actually be a good outcome for those seeking the unusual 'thundery easterly' setup as opposed to something very 'meh' (not bad for most, just... completely unremarkable).

    As it is, I'm hesitant to expect anything in particular beyond Saturday - and even that day has much uncertainty on just how close-by the low is positioned and the strength of the circulation around it. Big implications for how much instability can be increased via surface heating.

    GFS D6 solution only backed by 20% of ECM ensembles 

    ec-ens_nat_z500scenarios_2020061000_144.

    No clusters after D9, which doesn't inspire confidence. Ridge still NE, trough still chipping away at the west - in the balance but quite possible that warm/dry weather may hang on.

    ec-ens_nat_z500scenarios_2020061000_228.

    Still an improving picture, by D12 heights are rising from the SW too.

    ec-ens_nat_z500scenarios_2020061000_300.

    I've checked the individual ensembles and probably 60% of runs look like this; other runs have more influence from the NW trough, and a few have a new Euro trough.
