    Not even -7 850s are giving snow showers!!now i know the north sea is warmer than normal but that is truly shocking!!

    Don't forget every day the north sea gets slightly colder now, and that -7 might turn in -8 or -9 by the time we get to day 7.

    I’m still concentrating on trends with the NH profile after day 5 and all is still good. Even before the expected cold shot I was always convinced an SSW would occur despite some reservations from a n

    Only what’s modelled though. In reality, I’d expect decent convection out of that and a good chance of inland snow showers.

    I’m quite certain ECM easterly would be colder than it depicts. Warmer than it is now yeah right.

    The issue is here that the SSW may or may not propagate and if it does will it produce the goods because undoubtedly without a major split it will affect the Pacific pattern. You may end up wishing that a SSW never occurred in a month or so if the Pacific amplification occurs as a result of post SSW Tropical feedback. I don’t know how long the lower Atlantic trop disruption will continue for, but I have never been more wary of an SSW not being long term beneficial than this one.

    This is what I’m concerned about. We are seeing great synoptics without the interference from a SSW. It will be very disappointing if the SSW ‘ruins’ our chances 😂

    But whatever the SSW does, or doesn't do, Chio, I think we're in a pretty darn good, and well-primed, position right now... Best I've seen since 2013!:santa-emoji:

    After the epic failure of the SSW in 2019, you have to say we’d be unlucky if lightning struck twice!

    Sorry for being the grinch but just for the benefit of this who are scrolling the forum fior snow opportunities ... ECM looks great Synopticaly and has lots of potential day 10+ however it has little or no snow for most. So it’s not a ‘grab your shovel’ run. There is less snow on the ground by the end than there is now. Weds system misses the south, there is also hardly any showers coming south Thurs / Fri. It’s then dry for a few days then a bit of light rain coming in from the east before a colder dry finish. As we are approaching mid winter I’m personally just looking for snow now so I’m a little disappointed as it just has a bit of rain for most and the potential is after day 10

    Why are you assuming these precipitation charts are going to 100% verify?

    Gfs has plenty of snow showers piling in?

    Most times that we are praying for an SSW we don’t see 100hPa u winds heading towards record low levels. Especially with the disruption Atlantic based. Most of the time we are trying to knock the strat vortex off it’s perch. This is very different this time, so this is why I am a little bit sceptical of papers which have showed the SSW trop response when the strat PV is at a max

    12z FAX charts take tomorrows low pressure southwards into N France now. It's game over for southern England, expect the MO to cancel the warning in the morning.

    Onto the next one! Plenty to look forward to.

    Could it still skim the far reaches of the south coast?

    Didn’t someone in the early days of the strat thread do something on weather before and after a SSW. And worked out that there was almost as much chance of having cold weather in the lead up to the SSW as there is after? Or did I dream that?

    It just seems that at the moment, we’ve accepted our invite to the cold party. But we can’t seem to get an invite to the special VIP lounge where deep cold is located.

     

     

    Tell me about it 😅 Anyone willing to shell out for an invite? 🥂

    Could end up somewhere in between, which wouldn't be all bad. Guess we'll find out with a bit more certainty in the next few days 👍

    I’m not. I’m just pointing out the facts of what the particular run shows. This is a model output discussion forum so I was discussing the output. It may be a run that turns out to be incorrect , but I’m just replying to a post that referred to the 12z ECM as a ‘get your snow shovel out run’ when it doesn’t show much , if any snow for anyone , even in the north. If you disagree and want to show why you think this ECM run was a snowy ‘get your shovel out’ run then please elaborate ...

    Or it could lead to snowy background conditions. Why are you thinking of the worst from a balanced 50/50 chance?

    You can choose to stay poitive be happy and then be disappointed if it doesnt go your way

    Or

    Stay negative be miserable on the build up and when it doesnt go right.

    Its never a good thing to think like this in life its an unhappy existence!

    To be fair the models have back tracked some what and all the bullish it's going to get better and better has decreased some what. We haven't even had a frost just yet and there is a real possibility that we could after a relatively colder spell go back to business as usual. I do think once again we are looking for a favourable SSW to give most what they desire and currently that is looking 50/50

    Don't worry. Here in Norway we had -7.5 850s and it constantly rained with +2 degrees. Eastern winds over the Skaggerak sea and warm eastern Europe. There is no cold to our east so eastern winds are much warmer than normal even with -7 850s

    ECM ensemble mean T240, with the vortex pushed as far away from us as possible, I think:

    Good support for sliding the whole damn lot down, in terms of cold from the NNW.  Uncertainty east though, so there may be a fair few runs that don't build heights there, which would help.  

    Permutation number 2 on gfs is where this is leading too,we can dream.Insane uppers from an Arctic Northerly,polar lows would be forming all over the place,and none of this marginal wet slusly crud snow for some at the moment.

    Nearly minus 20hpa into Scotand heading South..

    Pretty epic reversal really, very interesting model watching - worst case this cold spell folds - we may have another round the corner. However, let’s hope they role into each other with a few months cold.
