Very dry outlook for November in the South. Mild as well.

wx summaries have the same theme as yesterday: an (apparent) paradox of mild weather for the W of Europe (but below norm) and cold in the E (but above norm). In week 2 not such deep cold to the NE but somewhat colder weather spreading SW-wards. Rain in the N Atlantic (catching N Scotland) and in the Med, mostly dry between.


Jet also similar to yesterday to start with, with a period of activity near to or across Scotland but different from Wed 17th with the N arm of the split jet shown yesterday suppressed and all the energy (and increasedly so) going into a S branch running SW of Ireland and down to Spain


GFS op - Zonal flow starting up from Friday, with LPs passing E-wards close to N Scotland (notably Sun 7th 990 mb Faeroes, repeat Sat 13th) and HP in S England and France. Then the LP which arises Tue 16th 965 mb Rockall develops a trough S-wards down the Irish Sea to Spain before re-grouping Sat 20th 975 Rockall again. Charts after Tue 16th quite different from yesterday's.


GEFS - temps back to norm Sat 7th then up and down with increasing uncertainty but suggestions of mild periods around Mon 8th and Fri 13th. Mostly dry to start with but more chance of rain after Mon 15th in S; rather wetter in Scotland continuously from Tue 9th. 


ECM also has the W-ly zonal pattern but keeps the track of the LPs further N, passing across Iceland after Sun 7th (last chart in this series is Sun 14th)

The Met 30 day outlook offers slight optimism but lost count how many times they have been wrong. Would not be surprised to see these change to more zonal theme in the next few days.

I don’t think true zonal is on the cards, at least not for the vast majority of England and Wales. You are right however about how poor Met office 30 dayers have been in recent months, all year in fact. It makes the contingency planners look even more ridiculous. A multi million pound lab funded by tax payers money, yet cannot even come close to its own deadlines.

WX summary show bulge of cold air moving E with 0C isotherm almost reaching Poland week 2 which should restore temps to normal over there. some cooling around UK tpp bit no more than seasonal. Rain around Baltic week 1 retreating to W fringes of continent and W Ned.


Jet unstable - week 1 w-ly streaks of varying strengths across/near N Scotland but flipping in week 2 into wild swings between N-ly and S-ly, and a strong flow too


GFS op to Sun 14th continuing W-ly pattern, LP near Scotland (esp Sun 7th) until Sun 14th when a cold LP moves S over UK (990mb England by Tue 16th) and on down to Spain. Then a brief pressure rise over the N before a reload on Sat/Sun 20/21st. The model is struggling with what happens when the zonal flow breaks down


GEFS temps generally above norm Sun 7th - Sat 13th (a cooler dip embedded in this spell in Scotland) after which an uncertain cooling, very variable in N; rain  less than y'day, dry to 16th (v dry in S) and a little rain thereafter.


ECM builds HP more strongly around Thu 11th and then the run finishes before Tue 16th but the LP as shown in GFSlooks as if it might be slower to develop

I’m assuming that’s Meteo Group.


Anyway - wrong thread for such musings. 


In the medium term looking generally mild, albeit with an increasing likelihood of frost and fog, especially towards the SE with high pressure nudging in.

For one thing a cold winter forecast generates a lot more public interest than a boring mild or wet one.

Personally a drier winter would be welcome. these past few years have just been a sludge fest, with a 20mm+ deluge once every few days.

Shorter term the signals in the charts seem to point towards a HP steered weather, with occasional LPs clipping the UK. Meaning drier, but cold nights where skies are clear and winds are slight.

Meaning the weather is about as usuable as it can be. Golf and running a plenty for me 😃

Actually the older I get the more I like the idea of a boring mild and dry winter. Xmas card snowscapes are nice to look at, but not much fun to travel around in. Let's be honest, this country grinds to a halt with half an inch of snow, unlike our Scandanavian neighbours who are properly prepared for it.
