    Glorious run from EC this evening...

    ☀️

    Not to be a party pooper but nowhere near enough confidence to make a call on next week from my perspective..

    Most certainly will change next run!!!but really good to look at for now!!!

    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

    Yes,in winter?

    seriously though,you are right?

     

    Aye but miles more chance of E'lys now than Dec to Feb!

    TBH easterlies in summer are very very rare too.

    Fantastic summer charts. Hopefully heat and storms

    But imagine if we had that pattern (if it comes off of course) in December/Jan or Feb...

    Seems to me a lot depends on how the low near Greenland interacts with the low over Iceland at 120 - 144 hours on the ECM

    Are they? I don't think they're that uncommon in June. After June they are definitely rarer but a lot of our true hot spells come from SE winds which are not too far off.

    Well, perhaps kevin if he is viewing might offer a better insight as he is the God of statistics but i'm not sure easterlies are that common pretty much all year round nowadays but happy to be wrong.

    EPS rolling out now appears more threatening with Icelandic low ridge also tucked further SW.

    Doesn't look any more threatening than the ECM op run did to be fair and look how that turned out.

    But I agree that if that low behaves differently then it will result in very different, cool and wet charts

    Evening all - had a few problems posting the charts last night so let's see if things are better as we see if the penguin suit will need an outing for Ascot:

    The T+240 charts for GFS OP, Control, GEM and ECM

    image.thumb.png.3d1c26c80f83c0c4dffcd0dc927602a0.pngimage.thumb.png.07386872824d14d6efb4eaf520a47719.pngimage.thumb.png.76c73061d2261082f22f8d4ef57498b2.pngimage.thumb.png.b428f8743669eeb1aa7ffedb7c12fe54.png

    Some similarities with pressure high to the north and north east but low to the south or south west so a north-south split but not the usual variety. The best of the weather for Scotland and northern Britain with the south closer to the European trough and more at risk from showers or storms. The east coast may suffer from haar but elsewhere pleasantly warm and indeed humid.

    GEM perhaps the best of the bunch but both GFS and ECM have some form of LP to the SW which may be good news further down the line for heat fans. The Atlantic is moribund.

    All fits well with the ECM ensembles this morning which, by D11, had some sort of Scandi heights on all clusters (100%), with three variations of a trough to the SW; trough over Biscay (41%), trough next to SW England (41%) and trough over the UK (18%).

    Even so, it just doesn't feel right to predict this type of pattern at D11 - I'd be more confident if things were zonal!

    I'll wait for it on Meteociel I think, if you aren't going to offer any interpretation!  It is hard enough teasing out the differences between different runs, without different graphics as well!

    ECM mean T120, T168, T240:

    image.thumb.jpg.d728a50b32d4150ba95c8ba685eae81e.jpgimage.thumb.jpg.873e6d4a02725ac1a8a6ab4e9929c3af.jpg

    image.thumb.jpg.17b3c68e0eea63635db3770e8ae455da.jpg

    So for this suite it seems it all depends on where that trough from Iceland goes, but other op runs don't have it at all, so whilst this is supportive of the positive signal for warmer weather, much is still to be resolved tonight.

    and ends as expected just like this mornings 00z with trough to the SW of the UK with a Scandinavian high building.

    But look at the difference from 2 days ago for the 10th June. Today’s chart is way less unsettled as the models start to get a handle on things. We’ve seen a marked change today too.
    We know you’d like it to go the unsettled route because that’s what you’ve been advocating for a few days and nobody likes to be incorrect....but surely you can see the correction here?

    There are a few days of nicer weather Monday-Thursday so that is similar to op but the Atlantic trough is not held back, the pressure patterns are quite different in Atlantic ridge more flat with EPS, whereas with op it is ridging more northeast linking with Scandinavian heights which helps keep trouble at bay, seems op went OTT with Scandi heights too.

    There’s no need for that I’m just reporting, why should I share? The EPS does agree with first half of next week being more settled and warmer, however longer term it is not so desirable.

    Spreads are useful while we wait for the clusters :

    EEM1-240.GIF

    Dark blues = less variation from the mean, greens = greater variation from the mean. 

    So it means : the mean chart for over Europe and South Scandi has decent agreement. However, the placement of the trough to our west is seriously up for grabs, anywhere from Wales back into the Mid-Atlantic

    We had a long period through April and May where reliability was good in the 7 day range. We’re now in something more like what you’d expect when severe cold in on the doorstep in winter, when 3-4 days is about as far as you’d reliably like to make an accurate prediction. That’s quite a big green blob of uncertainty.

    This spell in 2007 stands out to me as a notable easterly period in June. Easterlies are definitely more frequent in spring that at any other time but they do happen in June at times as well.

    The ECM ens are out and the op is a warm-er outlier towards the end and pressure drops a little and probably from the trough setting up shop to our S/SW

    still warm though as we would be on the right side of the trough pumping warm uppers from the SE but becoming more unsettled with perhaps showers/bands of rain and thunderstorms,i think it would be a perfect setup for most people,we have had a long warm dry spell,now i want to see some action?️:spiteful:

    It is interesting in passing to note that the models are actually consistently more accurate in winter in the NH:

    image.thumb.jpg.614f13d2ebd3326e6f3660ba484fffa7.jpg

    You can see it from the chart....it doesn't quite tie in with my experience of winter model watching, but maybe there is a difference between being more accurate for the more likely zonal scenarios, and less accurate for the less likely blocking ones that occur more rarely?  The ones we tend to look for?

    In summer, it is much less clear cut, I think.  And if you then factor the data issues at the moment, it is maybe no surprise all the models are struggling with a pattern change.

    That's my understanding - the polar vortex actually increases the reliability in winter. Summer lacks such clear drivers.

    That’s quite surprising on the pressure ensemble - I thought it’d be an outlier. It’s on the generous side, but not at the top or out of the bars. 00z will be fun tomorrow!
