    The ECM day ten mean,...it doesn't drop the trough south enough.

    lets hope it improves in the morning.

    Despite the spread showing that there are runs further south, the fact remains that this is the mean and you’re right, it isn’t far enough south with the lowest heights although better it heads se than sw!

    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

    expect a decent size cluster to be further south .....

    So if the low was further south would it also bring colder air into the UK? Just trying to understand the meaning here

    At that point it would be bringing the beast. Something much more potent if we get there.

    Means are pointless when confusion reigns. You could half with +10 uppers and half with -10 uppers, guess what the mean is. Yes pointless

    Looks like we could potentially have the classic LP moving S (SW or SE) into cold air, a notoriously tough pattern for the models to predict, wouldn’t even worry about that at day 8 to be honest, not worth getting knickers in a twist every 6/12 hours over at this point.
     

    All this without potential stratospheric effects coming up at a perfect mid winter time, that’s the equivalent of a 10000 strong army riding in horseback when the enemy is already depleted and on the ropes.

    The further south the trough the colder the U.K. becomes

    to a degree,  yes but when the mean corrects further north with the upper trough, you aren’t getting to a better place whatever way you look at the data !

    are we starting to close that warm gap between Siberia and Europe?

    EPS clusters at day ten look OK to me but don't look at the ext'd,...oh go on then,the ext'd show a SW'ly come mid Jan in cluster 1 but i nae am worried about it that far out when we can't resolve d 6>

    As shown above, too many clusters to get worked up over ...... just need patience until the output settles down .....we have a broad evolution but the envelope way too wide 

    the extended period continues to show a relaxation of the cold but I’m way off being convinced that the onset of a reversal is a time for putting much analysis into output two weeks away .......

    Keeping my eye on a possible pulse of heights running from Azores to Iberia between D7 and D11. Could temporarily throw up a SWly depending on the interaction with what's happening further north.

    I'm trying to think of what dominant pattern could lead to SW'lys for an extended period of time with the strat reversed? The ensembles must be seeing something though as it's a consistent theme.

    Once the trend starts though on the extended ensembles, its very hard to reverse, history tells us that, Feb 2012 a classic example, and that was an SSW as well or 'near enough' SSW, we went from runs that were bringing nearly the -20c isotherm into Kent, to a battleground, then after the battleground, the Met Office switched their 30 dayer from bitterly cold month to blowtorch within 2 days worth of updates. it blew up in the space of a few days, if i had gone with my own instinct with reading GEFS suites rather than MO updates, i would have seen it coming quicker and save myself some devastating disappointment.

    The orignal image is a gif, it basically inverts the signal with prominent blocking across the northern regions with strong troughing south of us.

    Good news.

    Being really fussy, a little bit west based but can’t complain at that for the next month or so, looks like for once the vortex might be staying well away from that eastern Canada/ESB locale for mid winter

    Am I missing something here?  The SSW isn’t meant to occur for about 4/5 days, and it’s impact on the trop is still to be determined. So surely the output is due to change dramatically, and hopefully for the better, over the coming 10-14 days. It’s still very much a wait and see approach from my POV for the medium term outlook.

    What’s possible when there’s no vortex!  

    My last post of the year.  

    I would like to thank everyone who posts in here, and everyone who reads the stuff we write.  It has been a horrible year, and for me, this is one of the few hobbies that I have been able to carry on doing, so whilst we may not agree about every shortwave, I think we might agree about the long wave picture, which is that we need each other.   

    Best regards for a happier 2021!

    Mike

    Nice post. How about a SSW to celebrate, Mike?! Thanks to all posters, in fact, on whom so many of us rely.

    Doesn’t downwelling start a while before the actual SSW event? There’s a few very good long posts on some other threads about it.

    I think the point most are making is, ensemble suites are fickle at the best of times, let alone when we have such an unusual NH pattern and stratospheric warming occurring.

    Yes and no ..... there is only one model from top to bottom.  So it’s modelling the reversal and then goes on to model the remainder of the run.  That’s the no part. The yes part relates to the fact that models don’t deal with reversals too well as they don’t happen v often so as the run progresses, it’s likely to be even less reliable than usual. (Which isn’t great anyway)

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
