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.

    GFS 00Z at T+384... all starting to look very, very, very familiar?

    So familiar, in fact, I think I'll go back to bed!😴

    All in line with what the vast majority of nwp and Meto outlook has been suggesting.

    Well a number on here and the ec seasonals a couple of weeks back were pointing to an 'interesting' November with positive MSLP towards Greenland/Iceland...just a reminder 🙂

    Absolutely - a lot of people (myself included) favoured a cool or colder than normal November with a fair amount of northern blocking and cooler weather showing up in the output at the end of October. Just look at this ECM day 10 chart from the 12z on the 31st October. Loaded with cold potential, big -NAO pattern:

    Now look what is actually going to transpire:

    image.thumb.png.8ccb1fe88ee739d6d7618db895342e8f.png

    A lot of this is due to the MJO passage and tropical activity, and the models not sequencing the movement of the ridges/troughs accurately towards the end of the month. We've just ended up in a pattern that would have been beautiful in the middle of summer. but is very uneventful in early to mid November.

    And, even more is down to good old wishful thinking?😁

    I think most of those were suggesting later in November.

    Best get used to it. If the OFI is anything to go by, no cold scenario will actually materialize this winter. Strangely my nuts predicted a cold winter, but the OFI says no, do i trust my nuts or the OFI. By nuts I mean the hazelnut tree btw lol🙊

    As in... 'Nuts, whole hazelnuts; Cadbury's take 'em and they cover them in chocolate'? Maybe not!😄

    Yes exactly hazel nuts, I noticed that the later the hazel nuts are ready the colder the winter. Last few winters they are done by August, this year it was September, so maybe .........🌨️❄️☃️ But the October Fog Index was zero lol

    Well, I noticed oodles of berries, on a holly tree, yesterday... And we all know what that means, don't we... weeks and weeks of neverending mild mush?!😁

    You know the models are bad when there’s a page of posts about berries, nuts and various indexes rather than any models 🤣 I saw a flock of sea gulls the other day if that helps 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Nothing of remote interest from the models now. The weather consigned to the rubbish bin to at least the 16th. oh well. The wait continues...

    Yep..agreed Steve...

    The hopes of blocking establishing to our North has all but evaporated over the last 48 hours...

    Euro High and +NAO for the next few weeks looks favourite...

    No hyperbole here but I wonder if date records for warmth could go. Fog could be an issue I guess

    If anything, some of the model runs are having a go at reinforcing the southerly flow rather than breaking it down into anything. If cold is your thing, I’d come back in a fortnight.

    Frankly, I don’t mind waiting until winter, it’s still autumn for another 3.5 weeks and in any case..it saves on heating bills and helps the daffodils!!!!! 🌼..🧐.these charts from the Gfs 12z op..let’s just say, thank god it’s still only November and not eating into winter!😜

    doubt that warmth records? fog aye, but will likely stay below 10 degrees max, I'd have thought

    Impossible to say from that chart.  Depends how warm the airmass is under the region of high pressure.

    Yep, agreed

    All hypothetical at that range anyway. But the trend is clear. We're heading for a warm month (up to around the 15th at least) I'd suggest

     Christ, glad I decided to spend lockdown in Spain instead of returning to the UK, those charts from all models are horrendous! They literally couldn't be worse, at least here in Spain under the Azores ridge temperatures will remain above average with plenty of autumn sunshine.

    To think I considered coming back with promise of early snowfalls 😕 

    I will end on a positive note however, November 1978 had very similar synoptics with long fetch south westerlies right up to the 21st when a marked cold front introduced a cold northwesterly, the rest as they say is history. 😉
