    Ah the folly of chasing GFS FI charts

    The 0Z run gave us something like Jan 1987

    The 6Z run gives us something like Jan 1989

    From winter cold affluence to winter cold effluence in 6 hours!

    Ah well, it's only November

    Thankfully most people on here know that looking for consistency at T+384 is a futile exercise 🙂

    Good evening! 😀 1st ever post! 1st of many I hope. Love this forum.   ECM: Tonight Matthew, I’m going to be... The GFS from yesterday!     A real tease, shame the OP only

    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.

    Most of the time, yes. But Nov/Dec 2010 was an exception. Models, inc GFS, picked that cold up from way out and I don't recall them ever wavering from what then transpired. So, rare of course, but unheard of? No

    I dont think ill ever understand the pointless excitement generated by a deep fi outlier chart... hey-ho

    The gfs 00z in fi suggests a cold easterly, the GFS 06z suggests a bartlett heatwave... 

    The NOAA 8-14 day mean suggests something in between - ish. High pressure to our East, a mean upper southwesterly courtesy of a mean upper trough in the mid Atlantic.

    To me that looks mild, somewhat unsettled,  NW/SE split , but not overly wet as we still have a positive pressure anomaly.  there could well be cold pooling to our East, and IF shortwave lows circulation on the southern flank of the mean trough, erode pressure over Iberia then Southern Europe , then the cold option is viable.

    Of course if they dont then its entirely feasible that the milder 06z gfs becomes close to reality.

    A quick question over those charts. Everytime I look at them those green contour lines seem, to me anyway, showing the exact same thing whether in summer or winter. Probably the mind playing tricks but what will it take for them to show a NE'ly

    What I don't understand about them is that they show a high anomaly which, in that chart you've posted, would suggest a Southerly or Se'ly rather than a SW'ly and that contradicts the green contour lines which are in a seemingly permanent SW'ly

    Honest question - I'm not trying to dismiss that model just trying to understand them more

    A  lack of continuity in the week 2 nwp in respect of the nuances

    Yes they are similar because our weather is basically westerly. So the green lines will be very similar as we usually have troughing in the mid north atlantic. It is very unusual in the northern hemisphere for the mean upper flow over the time period concerned to become easterly, so seeing an easterly or northeasterly on these charts are very rare. 

    The chart i posted does show a gentle southwesterly mean upper flow, and hight anomaly to our east. from that over the days covered there will be a southwesterly mean over that time. but within that time there could well be briefer surface winds from the south or southeast, but not sustained. 

    Im sure @johnholmes will be able to correct me or explain further.

    GFS goes from a cold outlier (00z) to a warm outlier (06z) looks like everything is still on the table for week 2...

    Bit occupied at the minute mushy but will take a look at the relevant posts when I can, probably during this evening

    cheers  John

    I still think there is enough scope over the next 10-14 days for a decent pressure rise to the ene which could bring a drop in temps over the UK. Nothing scientific just a hunch looking at the nhp. Looking at the background signals hasn't always delivered so maybe I could be correct 🤔🤔

    You may well be right, from experience if theres high pressure to our east as expected, then it may well migrate to a more northern latitude and bring about cold. The problem is that that GFS cold chart is outside the NOAA chart i use so if that cold chart, or any subsequent cold chart is to appear on the Anomaly charts it wont be for a few days yet.

    12 z looking chilly and heading towards a very cold end with Easterly looking likely on this run post day 10.  

    LP to west won’t allow it to develop

    Scandi High...lots of possibilities from there...the term ‘slider’ could be coming out the bag...

    Evening all. Been quite a while since I’ve wrote in here! Hope everyone is ok on what has been a challenging and exhausting year for all of us. 

    To start off with, I’m quite liking the continuous hinting of that massive ice slice to advect into Europe, potentially giving an early entry into the freezer! A long way off yet, but the trend is certainly there. 

    In the meantime, it’ll be nice to enjoy some nice, still, foggy and maybe frosty mornings, which will be quite a treat, given how wet and windy it has been. 

    Take care all. I’ll hopefully be posting more often on the run into winter proper.

    Impressive from the 12z GFS. Look at that blocking near Scandinavia..

    Nice to see such a cold pool develop so early in the season, compared to recent years. Let's hope this trend continues.

    Looks like eventually getting there, not likely to pan out like this but good to see sone serious cold developing to the east....with chilly enough air coming from the west.  Nice run to look at

    Slowly we are starting to get towards that pattern it’s around the 192 hour mark which is 9th November (to start looking for the pressure building across scandi) still a bit of wiggle room on the timing and still too far off to be looking for exact details but all very positive and if we can get a cold pool waiting in the wings 😈 ️ anim_fgm4.gif

    Models firming up that the 9th will be when the ridge begins to develop and pressure starts to increase across Scandi, something that’s also caught my eye is just how cold the air to the east is being shown on some of the runs between -16 and -20 hpa has been re appearing, for this stage in November that’s quite impressive and again akin to the Beast From The East 850s. Also just worth remembering for those that tend to get panicky with the less impressive looking runs is that we have seen it over the years the models often over do the strength of the low pressure to the west and underestimate the higher pressure / block.

    Years of watching will tell you gfs 9/10 over progressive with Atlantic .

    Its all there to see Yesterday 12v v todays 12z and todays 06z Atlantic getting pushed run by run.
