Cold & Snow Update - Not Mild After All?

We are now entering a significant and prolonged pattern change to even colder conditions, which will also be accompanied by frequent and widespread snow events across the country.

From the middle of next week cold air of an Arctic origin will begin to surge in across the whole of the country. This will also bring the risk of almost nationwide snow showers with this period.

As the cold Arctic air begins to plunge in across the country through the middle of next week, this will increasingly turn to to snow across many parts of the country from the NORTH to the SOUTH of the UK and Ireland (appropriate warnings will follow/be updated). Lying snow on the ground and some notable accumulations are likely to develop almost anywhere under these developing and optimum conditions for widespread snow throughout Wednesday to Friday, in particular, in some northern, western and central parts of the UK, where up to 10-20 cm of snow could be recorded at times. We must also consider additional snow that is likely to accumulate on top of these amounts, which is likely to lead some atrocious conditions within this period.

The cold and wintry theme will also remain as the more dominant feature over the next few weeks at the very least, and it will tighten its grip even more and gradually worsen throughout February as a strong blocking pattern develops, with winds veering in from a more northerly and easterly direction.

 

The final part of January and the February period as a whole is now shaping up to something that could be on a similar par to December 2010 at the very least. There is likely to be frequent and heavy bouts of snow across the whole country, severe blizzards, and major ice problems within this period. Lying and settling snow on the ground for some prolonged periods of time is likely to become an issue for many. It can also become rather difficult to break out of such a pattern once we are within it, and there are some strong indications that we could become locked into this for quite some time.

When many were questioning our forecast due to milder indications from elsewhere for the upcoming week - the following was posted on our Facebook page

Britain on red alert : Displaced Polar Vortex

http://www.express.co.uk/news/nature/554183/Britain-red-alert-displaced-Polar-vortex-unleash-weather-hell-next-week

A "quote" from our forecast within the Daily Express from the 10th October 2014 stated:

“FEBRUARY and into SPRING may also not escape an extension of these waves of cold and widespread snow at times. “However, there are some conflicting signals for December at present, which could introduce some milder and rather unsettled interludes of weather at times to begin with.”

A "quote" from our forecast within the Daily Express from the 12th November 2014 stated:

“JANUARY and into FEBRUARY are likely to offer some potentially severe cold spells of weather and significant snow for many parts of the country, and this is when winter will begin to take even more of a STRONGHOLD this year.”

A "quote" from our forecast within the Daily Mirror from the 13th December 2014 stated:

"The factors are there for an extremely cold spell to take hold in JANUARY, possibly into FEBRUARY. "The pattern is unfolding exactly as I would expect and it's not going to go away."

A "quote" from our forecast within the Daily Express from the 1st January 2015 stated:

He warned a major big freeze is on the way which when bedded in could stay put well into the beginning of this year (2015).

“We could also be looking at a very similar time-frame and scale of events this time around, in particular, as we progress throughout JANUARY and into FEBRUARY."

A "quote" from our forecast within the Irish Daily Mirror from the 4th January 2015 stated:

Forecaster with Exacta Weather James Madden said the prolonged bitter weather is likely to stretch into FEBRUARY. "This will be due to a sudden stratospheric warming event within this period and other intrinsic factors.

“[Things] such as the Troposphere [lowest portion of the Earth’s atmosphere] and ocean circulation patterns, which will split the Polar Vortex into what we think will become a favourable position for some prolonged periods of cold and heavy snow throughout a large part of the remaining winter period.

“There is likely to be some significant changes throughout the 'second half of JANUARY' to some prolonged cold spells and a number of widespread snow events across large parts of Ireland. It may even arrive a little earlier than mid-month.

He added: “FEBRUARY and into SPRING may also not escape the extension of these waves of cold and widespread snow at times.”

Cold Winter Vs Mild Winter

There is now a good chance that the mean Central England Temperature (CET) will come in below-average for January and well below-average for February - this would result in a much colder than average winter for 2014/15, despite earlier Met Office indications for a mild/warm winter

UPDATE ADDED: SUNDAY 25TH JANUARY 2015 - James Madden - Exacta Weather (13:12)



 

Cold & Snow Confirmed - But What About The Big Freeze & Snow For Everyone?

Widespread and heavy snow blanketed large parts of the UK this week causing travel disruption inc parts of the south (Dover, Essex and Kent) as outlined with pictures and in the provided media links below:

  
   


Abandoned cars on the M1 due to heavy snow + snow pictures for Essex, Devon, Oldham, Rochdale, Derry (Northern Ireland), Derbyshire and the Peak District.

Although some places never experienced snow, it is important to remember that this is the nature of the weather/nature/snow events (everywhere does not get it). This particular weather event was also forecast from over 75 days ahead of occurrence in our subscriber's reports - which states to allow for deviations in scale/timing. It is also important to remember that up until a few days ago, conventional meteorology refused our forecast as a rain ONLY event (which it was not), and relevant weather warnings were just issued some several hours beforehand.








To date, we have seen a number of developing cold periods and snow/widespread snow events throughout December and January, in particular in some northern and central parts of the country/Wales. However, we have only managed some minor/borderline major stratospheric warming events for within these periods. We have therefore, not experienced a sustained enough negative North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) to bring in some major blocking and dominant cold northerly/easterly winds as of yet. However, the Arctic Oscillation (AO) has been more negative, and at times its close relation (the NAO) has looked like following a similar trend. Even so, it hasn't really had the strength to hold a sustained negative pattern and induce a blocking pattern over the UK and Ireland.

There is a fine line between judging implications from 'minor' and 'major' stratospheric warming events and how they impact our weather events in terms of overall scale and severity. This has therefore allowed the milder conditions to return at times throughout this winter and somewhat watered down the potency of how widespread the wintry conditions have become, and in comparison to some other parts of the country to date, in particular, in some parts of Southern England.

However, the pattern that we are in now is quite different to the one that brought an end to the December cold spell during the first part of January, and we are unlikely to see a prolonged return to any milder weather conditions throughout the remainder of winter.

The cold and wintry theme will now remain as the more 'dominant feature' over the next several weeks at the very least, although some temporary less cold conditions can't be ruled out over certain days to begin with (not super mild as the TV forecasts will try to make out). However, any milder or 'less cold' conditions are likely to carry less potency than earlier this winter.

A blocking pattern then becomes highly favourable for recognition from others for more than at any point so far throughout this winter, and within the next 7-14 days due to the effects of stratospheric warming and their impact on particular oscillation patterns (third party weather models will take some time to adjust). In the meantime, we will still experience further shots of cold weather and additional snow events, so technically you could say that the big change had already begun in recent weeks. Nevertheless, something of an even more potent and rather severe nature still awaits us. Once we get to this stage, it is something that we are likely to become locked into for quite some time.

Our last update in reference to this on the 13th January also stated (see further down this page):

We have also seen a displacement of the polar vortex and some strong/ongoing stratospheric warming (for the period specified in our winter reports). These factors will begin to influence our weather patterns and put us in a more favourable position for some sustained and prolonged cold periods, with a number of further widespread snow events into the remainder of JANUARY/FEBRUARY and into SPRING. The Arctic Oscillation (AO) is also starting to consistently trend towards some highly negative values (due to low solar activity), and this will be reflected in some much colder than average surface conditions and blocking patterns for the UK/Ireland within THESE PERIODS as winds begin to veer in from an easterly/north-easterly direction.

A "quote" from our forecast within the Daily Express from the 10th October 2014 stated:

FEBRUARY and into SPRING may also not escape an extension of these waves of cold and widespread snow at times. “However, there are some conflicting signals for December at present, which could introduce some milder and rather unsettled interludes of weather at times to begin with.”

A "quote" from our forecast within the Daily Express from the 12th November 2014 stated:

Snow, Strong Winds & Storm Rachel Arrive On Cue + Worse To Come (see subscribers/February reports)

Maximum wind speeds from overnight on the 14th January and into Thursday 15th January have so far seen recorded gusts of 115MPH in several parts of Scotland, 102MPH in the Pennines, and 97MPH in parts of Wales from Storm Rachel - as indicated for this period in our report below (maximum winds speeds in Met Office warnings was for 80MPH)

http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/jan/14/snow-ice-uk-ireland-blizzards-storms-schools-roads-severe-weather

Snow up to 5ft deep in parts of Scotland left some drivers stranded overnight on the A9 route to the Highlands and forced the cancellation of trains

The Met Office reported winds of 101mph in Great Dunsell, Cumbria - the highest across the UK yesterday - while other exposed areas also recorded speeds well in excess of 70 mph

A gust of 115mph was recorded on Ben Nevis, while at Cairngorm mountain winds reached 105mph.

Snow & Major Storm To Arrive On Cue + What Next? (Significant Pattern Change)

The following forecast information was posted to subscribers in our national week ahead forecast during the early hours of Monday 12th January:

This week will bring a rather compelling period of weather across the British Isles. The early part of the week will bring the risk of wintry showers, hail, and snow, in particular, in some parts to the north and west throughout Tuesday and into Wednesday. Some of the snow will be significant with the potential for blizzards across higher ground, and there is also the risk for some of this to fall to lower levels at times, even in parts as far south as the Midlands and some southern areas by midweek.

This will then be followed by a potentially robust to very strong stormy period throughout the latter part of what is likely to be Wednesday and into Thursday. The worse-case scenario could bring wind speeds in excess of 50-80MPH quite widely across many parts of the country, and although it is difficult to pinpoint the exact intensity until nearer the time, wind speeds of up to 80-100MPH can also not be ruled out at this early stage of developments. There is certainly some potential for some extensive to extreme damage to buildings and structures within this period, and extra vigilance and attention to future weather warnings would be advisable for what is likely to be a widespread weather event.

There will also be a continued risk of some additional wintry weather in some parts to the north and west within this period, with the potential for some further blizzards in parts of the far north, whilst other parts will see some heavy rain.

Colder weather will then begin to re-establish itself, with the risk of further and potentially widespread wintry/snow showers developing across the country. This will then continue into the following week with the ever-increasing risk for a number of further widespread snow events within this period.

The following forecast information was also posted to subscribers in our national week ahead forecast during the early hours of Monday 5th January:

There is the potential for a significant snow event to develop throughout this weekend and into the early part of next week, in particular, in some parts to the north and west of the country. This will be due to a significant area of deep low pressure that will also produce some rather strong winds, and there will be the potential for some blizzard conditions to develop across higher ground in parts of the far north within this period.

This will herald a change to a much colder outlook with a number of additional widespread snow events throughout the second half of January and into February, even in parts to the south of the country.

The same update to subscribers from the 5th January also stated the following:

Please refer to the month ahead/seasonal forecasts for this period + watch changes in the TV forecasts over the coming days and into next week.
 
In addition to this our 150, 60 and 30 day ahead winter/snow/subscribers forecasts also stated that a notable date for a widespread snow event could be for 'in or around the 12th January' (+/- 1-2 days) and the Boxing Day snow event.

The impending snow events and upcoming storm were also forecast from ourselves within various media articles for public consumption in advance of suggestions from conventional meteorology during last week:




The Met Office have since issued severe weather warnings for snow, ice and strong winds across many parts of the country throughout this week (but only from 11:37am on Monday 12th January).



In addition to the snow/ice warnings from the Met Office during last weekend - our Facebook posting from the 10th January also stated the following:

Expect more of these 'current' severe weather warnings for snow/wind/ice to be issued throughout next for the UK & Ireland - but on a more prolific scale (and as indicated for this period in advance of mild projections from conventional meteorology).


So What Next - A Significant Pattern Change Or Not?

Throughout this winter to date we have seen an alternating pattern of stormy conditions (which have produced snow events in places), mild conditions, and colder conditions with further snow events for the dates specified in our subscribers reports (see below update and pictures).

We have also seen a displacement of the polar vortex and some strong/ongoing stratospheric warming (for the period specified in our winter reports). These factors will begin to influence our weather patterns and put us in a more favourable position for some sustained and prolonged cold periods, with a number of further widespread snow events into the remainder of January/February and into spring. The Arctic Oscillation is also starting to consistently trend towards some highly negative values (due to low solar activity), and this will be reflected in some much colder than average surface conditions and blocking patterns for the UK/Ireland within these periods - as winds begin to veer in from an easterly/north-easterly direction.



Our update from Saturday 3rd January (see below update) also stated the following in reference to third party weather models/other forecasters:

"Everything is essentially on track and the third party weather models will have no choice but to swiftly adjust to what we have forecast, it is just a little out of sync in terms of exact timing/arrival. However, our forecast has always stated that January would be the key player within all our forecast indications (added 3rd January)."

In addition to this, it is also important to remember that December temperatures only just come in above-average, and despite what the current Central England Temperature (CET) is showing for January at present, this figure is always over exaggerated in the first of the half of the month, especially when a number of days have become significantly milder (Met Office own words). There is still every chance that January could come in below-average despite the over exaggerated milder figures at present, and then it will be game on for February as to whether this winter will be officially recorded as a mild or cold one, it is still all to play for (December to February are the official months of the meteorological winter).

The following media article from the 10th October 2014 stated:

February and into spring may also not escape an extension of these waves of cold and widespread snow at times. “However, there are some conflicting signals for December at present, which could introduce some milder and rather unsettled interludes of weather at times to begin with.”


The following media article from the 12th November 2014 also stated:

January and into February are likely to offer some potentially severe cold spells of weather and significant snow for many parts of the country, and this is when winter will begin to take even more of a stronghold this year.”

Important Note On The Storms/Gulf Stream + Record Winds Batter Scotland

The stormy conditions and strong winds that we have been experiencing are a typical trait of a changing Gulf Stream, and this is something that we can expect throughout many of our winters in the coming years and decades as solar activity reduces further.

The following Exacta Weather report from 11 months earlier stated:

I could hedge a quite safe bet due to the scientific evidence that I have analysed repeatedly, that 70-80% of all winters in the coming decades will now see huge and frequent swirly low pressure systems and strong winds attacking our shores due to Gulf Stream changes.

In addition to the scientific evidence that I have analysed repeatedly, the following science documentary has also been brought to my attention. This documentary was initially aired on the 29th April 2007 and it is titled FUTURE FOCUS: The Gulf Stream and the Next Ice Age (from some 8 years earlier).


I have also managed to locate a recently uploaded version of the documentary on YouTube in the links below:



Now here is the important bit and for those who confute my scientific findings/analysis behind this theory (I now have some scientific support). If you forward the documentary to the 12 minute mark, there is an illustrated and concise description of the Gulf Stream in relation to the UK and Ireland.

It states the following about the Gulf Stream "without these beautiful mechanics the Inverewe Gardens in Scotland would be flattened by winds."

This documentary was aired some 7-8 years before the strong storms of recent winters + the recent record-breaking winds in Scotland of only last week - yet many others have no real concerns or very little understanding in regards to a changing Gulf Stream and the other profound long term implications it will have on our climate and weather patterns? However, this evidence clearly suggests otherwise...



Our member's only forum and access to our solar activity updates/forecasts are now available in the Exacta Weather Extra section:

Unless you subscribe to our forecasts you do not get the full and more accurate picture - it is also not fair on the people who have subscribed when all the forecast information is give away for free. We have taken on board the comments from current subscribers, and will delay any free/public domain information in future updates.

Spring 2014

Our original long range spring forecast for 2014 also suggested the first major warm spell of the year would occur from the middle part of May 2014.

The following front page of the Daily Mirror from 6th May 2014 also stated in addition to this:


Forecaster James Madden said: "It's going to get particularly warm from the middle of the month. Temperatures 'could' get up to 82F (28C) which will give later parts of May a Mediterranean feel. "Within the next 10 days we should begin to see lots of sunshine and pleasant weather that is set to continue until the start of June. "This is going to be the first big heatwave of the year. "It is going to better than anything we've experienced so far this year."

The Met Office then opposed the above statement and stated in a tweet on Twitter

"Ignore the front page of the Daily Mirror today... no heatwave on the way unfortunately, just a spell of dodgy reporting."


10 Days later (exact) and Britain experienced a period of high temperatures and glorious sunshine for several days across the country. Temperatures also reached 26.3F (79F) in parts of the south and despite some periods of unsettled weather thereafter, temperatures remained largely above average for the remainder of the month, with further periods of warm sunshine developing too.

SUMMER 2014

Our long range summer forecast to subscribers in January of last year also identified exactly when the warm to hot spells of weather would occur + in an article within the Daily Express from the 7th April.


James Madden said: “Some periods of warm and settled weather can be expected throughout this summer – in particular in the latter part of July and into the first half of August when many parts of the country could see temperatures ranging in the mid to high 20s 'AT TIMES'.

“Some warmer incursions of weather are also plausible from the mid-month points in both June and July, in particular, in the southern half of the country.

Conclusion

A generally settled theme and a prominent and widespread warm/hot spell with temperatures generally ranging in the mid to high 20s developed across large parts of the country throughout the latter part of July + it remained warm into the first part of August with temperatures reaching 25C in parts of the UK every day up to the 8th.

A warmer incursion of weather was also noted in mid-June when temperatures reached 26.8C in parts of the south on the 13th and 27C later in parts of both Scotland and Ireland on the 18th. A further incursion of warmer weather was also noted in mid-July when temperatures reached 32C in parts of the south on the 18th.

UPDATE ADDED: Tuesday 13th January 2014 (09:00am) - James Madden



 


USA Big Freeze/Polar Vortex Set To Arrive On Cue + Why Is This Good News For The UK & Ireland?

Our 120 day ahead USA Winter 2014/15 correctly stated the following about a mild December + what is about to happen now for the exact dates/locations (see forecast snippet picture below):



"A number of potentially cold and major snow events are likely to develop throughout this winter in relation to how solar activity and sudden stratospheric warming can alter overall weather patterns in the United States, in particular, within the January and early February period in the eastern half of the United States and Canada. The Polar Vortex is likely to collapse and become displaced and this is likely to push cold air much further south than usual within this period. However, December could prove to be a more near average month in many parts with the potential for some positive temperature anomalies in many places and a reduced number of major snow events."

"The worst case scenario could bring something on a similar par to the winter of January 1985 to parts of the eastern half of the United States within the above period of January to early February."


IMPORTANT NOTE - A United States big freeze is good news in terms of our forecasts for the UK & Ireland, and it does NOT mean that we will see the same implications unfolding as last year (wind and rain). Up until now we have restricted this information to subscribers only, without giving away our thought process/methodology on how cold conditions/Polar Vortex in the USA could put us in a favourable position for some prolonged periods of cold and a number of widespread snow events throughout a large part of the remaining winter period. Everything is essentially on track and the third party weather models will have no choice but to swiftly adjust to what we have forecast, it is just a little out of sync in terms of exact timing/arrival. However, our forecast has always stated that January would be the key player within all our forecast indications.

We are still only 1/3 of the way through winter and away from parts of southern England/Ireland, we have already experienced several widespread snow events for the exact dates we forecast from several weeks ahead - as outlined in the pictures/links below.

Our subscribers forecast for the UK & Ireland 2014/15 winter period from several months ahead also stated the following about 'milder' weather in December (our version and no one else's - see forecast snippet picture below):



"The 2014/15 winter period is likely to experience a below average winter overall in terms of temperature for the UK and Ireland later this year. Each month of the meteorological winter is therefore likely to result in below-average temperatures for this period (CET), in exception for some conflicting signals for 'DECEMBER', which may throw up some 'MILDER' and rather 'UNSETTLED' interludes of weather for this period."

The following media articles from October 2014 (3-4 months ahead) also stated the following in "quotation marks"

"However, there are some conflicting signals for DECEMBER at present, which could introduce some MILDER and rather UNSETTLED interludes of weather at times.”


“However, there are some conflicting signals for DECEMBER at present, which could introduce some MILDER and rather UNSETTLED interludes of weather at times to begin with.”
