ECM indicating a return to some settled weather end of next week however a few showers & the flow becoming Northerly so the potential for some frost developing- Nice & seasonal.

Well the AO off the scale is an interesting sight !

A major change from ECMWF ahead of the winter.

Yeah - I did also say in another post that tropical activity is the big 'unknown' in all of this....and major hurricane Teddy is largely to blame for the plunge into very unsettled weather. The track up the Eastern seaboard in the next few days is going to buckle the jet stream quite significantly. Unfortunately we end up on the wrong side of this! Prepare for some win, rain and much colder weather!

I didn't think the a Hurricane can cause a buckle to the Jetstream (from papers I had read will try and find them again). Isn't it a case of the buckled Jetstream being the driver to the track of the Hurricane?

Either way, @mb018538, as you say, we're on the wrong side of the Jet next week and it's going to be a shock to the system, relative to what we've been experiencing..

A really horrific GFS after midweek- hope this is modified as we get closer to the time. Always amuses me how these storms plough across the Atlantic like there's no tomorrow and then instantly grind to a halt once they reach the UK- it's like someone is playing a big joke on us. 

The one saving grace is the fact that uncertainty is always high at this time of year in an active hurricane season.

Hopefully it will clear off more quickly than the GFS shows and I really think the GFS is a worst case scenario this morning for the depth of cold air that comes down. Would probably just mean a lot of unpleasant wind and cold rain at this time of year.

They can and definitely do effect the jetstream - this tweet from Mike Ventrice shows how a Typhoon in the Pacific a couple of weeks ago caused the heat in the western USA, the sudden drop of 37c to snow in a day in Colorado, and eventually the recent heatwave in Europe.

500 mb update

Friday 18th

Ec-gfs both show large -ve heights and a deep contour low in the uk area couple with gfs showing ridging/+ve heights Greenland area, much less so on ec,but both show lowish contour heights with a flow n of w into the uk

Noaa has also gone, last evening for a large jump towards this idea. Not sure about this but wait for a couple more outputs although the 8-14 shows similar.

Assuming all 3 models are in the right area then a cool/coldish unsettled spell for the next 2 weeks or so.

Morning all, most models now showing a rather cold and unsettled end of the month. This particular overview picture below indicates potential for some snow over the mountains of Northern Britain.

Pretty good agreement between the GFS and ECM for a significant change next week

What a contrast from today to this time next week if this GFS frame verifies:

And the ECM is in broad agreement:

Very autumnal. And, remarkably, maybe even a little bit wintry over the higher Scottish regions

Looking at the ECM 0z ensemble mean, it’s best to make the most of the current benign, pleasant anticyclonic conditions as it looks like we will shortly be plunged into the depths of autumn with a very unsettled and much cooler spell..but, by day 10 there are glimmers of hope as the unsettled conditions gradually relaxes its grip and the Azores ridge begins to nose NE towards the south.

This mornings ECM chart @240 caught my eye:

ECM1-240.thumb.gif.f6ecbb8a376a08c2c41b004866a4dc95.gif

Could we be looking at a potential Azores-Scandi linkup here?! 🧐

If not, it should bring some settled weather from that scenario at least with the Azores ridge.

Enjoying those ECM and GFS charts for mid-next week. A nice deep low right over the south for once, for my birthday on Weds (well, the day after, mostly). Possibly a named storm, too?

I reckon that Low in the Atlantic will roll over the High. Although it's hypothetical of course as, at 240, things probably won't look like that

A cool unsettled run from ECM

Does this chart indicate a wash-out in the SE on Wednesday, with a stalling cold front?

There’s something of a recovery towards the end of the ECM 12z operational as a ridge of high pressure from the west topples SE across the u k but it may only be temporary respite with another depression poised over Iceland but before that possibility, it becomes very unsettled and gradually much cooler for all, you could even call it cold, especially further north where it could become cold enough for snow on higher hills / mountains..for a time...a real shock to the system is on the way, the first major blast of autumn. 🍂

Looks like fine wether returns by day 10...

Could go one of two ways that - the High could build in or get pulled out into the North Atlantic in a repeat of what will happen Tuesday onwards this week. That low over Iceland looks primed to plunge SE

It doesn’t look like that to me Atlantic ridge sharpening back again and repeat.

Models continue to suggest a much cooler unsettled spell ahead just after the equinox. A cold trough digging in as heights build north into Greenland. After a week or so of late summer, from Tuesday onwards a week or so of very autumnal weather likely. Big contrasts with northern parts forecast to be decidedly chilly.

Yes, ECM mean clearly showing a particularly unsettled spell at T144:

T240 and there is little signal at all, so all bets off here:

It is about now that we look for one of those major changing seasons moments, in this case the last time we really feel the warmth of the sun before the descent into winter.  This weekend may be it, but I wouldn’t write off one more resurgence of warmth turn of the month....AAM forecasts suggest this is possible..

A step-change in the feel of things takes place through late September, as we descend into Autumn more fully and cross the natural seasonal divide. Through most of September there is a tug of war a pull and push between summer and autumn, by October, the release into autumn is finally kicked, any dry settled sunny weather even if temps get into the 20s has a definitively different feel about it. Indeed statistically we see the most marked temp differential between two adjacent months in September and October. The same step change takes place in late March. There are therefore two step changes in the autumn season, whereas the spring season feels has perhaps just the one in late March, followed thereafter by a propelled movement through the splendour of spring, rushing headfast into summer.

In overall feel the most major step-change of the year takes place when the clocks go back, far more marked a change than when the clocks go forward. Key factor loss of daylight.
