Drying out from Wed. 5th March

Postby Len Wood » 2014 Mar 01, 00:02

At last the models indicate high pressure establishing over the UK next week.
I have forgotten what a few dry days in a row are like.
It is a long time since the beginning of December.

Christmas has come and gone.
People have suffered from the storms.

Judging from the GFS chart for 15th March I don't think we need to
Beware the Ides of March .

A nice big fat anticyclone.

yes the charts are looking better for dryness at long last. I tend to use the 500mb anomaly charts, the 6-10 and 8-14 from NOAA along with the 6-10 from ECMWF-GFS. IF they are consistent with one another and over a minimum of 3 days then the upper air pattern is usually very similar to what they are indicating. Thus the general idea of weather type can be inferred from this, the degree of warmth/cold and how settled/unsettled but of course no detail.
sorry not used this before so I am unable to post the link or the chart

This is a useful link for Jetstream pattern:

Certainly looks like the jet will swing north towards Iceland this week, and high pressure will build from the south. Also looks like the Pacific jet will lose the big loop over Alaska - should bring some much-needed rain to California and some warming to eastern USA
