Model output discussion - cold spell approaching?

    Evening all!

    Models currently have a lovely time trying to resolve an extremely amplified meridional pattern, with trough disruption causing chaos.

    Just look at how amplified the whole pattern is from North America across to Europe. 

    GFS OP @+72

    But then look how even more amplified some members like P16 are at the same time frame. The ridge into trough in the western Atlantic is distinctly more elongated.

    I've drawn arrows to indicate the potential trough disruption occurring, I think the one in the western Atlantic is most important here. On P16 the trough disrupts in the next 24 hours, cuts the low off from from it's fuel source of cold air, leaving it to weaken and meander around not doing too much in the Atlantic. This allows some retrogression of the the high to the east and the western high to build into each other in a favourable location, as seen in the below three time steps. 

    By T+120 we have a new shortwave to worry about to the north of the UK but at least we have built a favourable high!

    T+78

    Contrast this with the Op run and with no trough disruption in the Atlantic by T+84, keeping the low fairly strong and preventing any retrogression of the high over towards southern Greenland. Then by T+120 the low has moved towards our southwest, dragging in south westerlies!

    Other GEFS runs that have also have the trough disrupting in the western Atlantic are 7,9, 10 & 12 (probably some more too) and all lead to rather nice conditions for coldies following! 

    This is of course without thinking about the trough disruption happening over the UK on Saturday and the cold high that is being very reluctant to move in mainland Europe!

    Night peeps!

    Imagine throwing your toys out of the pram when you've got an EPS mean like this. Better than anything we've seen since 2018. Seriously, some of you need to temper your expectations. Not ev

    Hmmm. Where to start. 1. Modelled uppers are likely to drop nearer the time, but -8 is cold and for many not marginal. Rubbish? How many recent winters have you followed! 2. We are very defi

    Overall, I'd be happy with all these model runs, who really wants to see perfect charts beyond about day 6 or 7, those can only downgrade. Reasonable prospects for cold and some snow, with realistic p

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      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.
