This thread is for posting / discussing /analyzing charts up to T120 ( in the more reliable time frame).
If your post does not specifically relate to the charts then it doesn't belong here off topic posts will be moved- please use the summer thread for general chat.
A couple of cool nights coming up. Weds night just a bit cool in Northern counties.
Warm front bringing rain to the West and North midlands Northern counties tomorrow, heavy in places. Much cooler further N under the rain cloud. Airmass bringing humid conditions up over the country on Tuesday. Humidex showing feeling warm and muggy Tues night into Weds morning for most.
Getting breezy tomorrow afternoon, windy on coasts. Marine warning in operation.
Status Yellow - Small Craft Warning
Southwest winds will increase to force 6 on Tuesday afternoon and evening on Irish Coasts from Carnsore Point to Valentia to Slyne Head.
Issued: Monday 18 June 2018 22:00
Big change in the airmass tomorrow as the wind swings around to the NW giving a fresher day and cooler temperatures. Lower humidty. Cool tomorrow night .
Lads we have an absolute cracker of a weekend on the way
Took the temperature chart from the GFS since the last run of the ECM only shows 2AM temperatures, GFS is a more accurate representation Looks like Saturday - Monday will be epic, with Sunday being the peak.
Another NW / N breeze tomorrow, freshest along the NW , N, NE and E coasts. Temperatures similar to today and mildest in the S. Low humidity and another cool night in store as cloud clears towards evening as Hp builds from the W.
Clear skies and calm conditions and a cool airmass giving very cold readings early in the morning.
After a relatively cool night temperatures rising early morning giving a fine day . A bit of cloud about but should have good levels of sunshine .
Cloud looks to be an issue this week with areas experiencing mist and drizzle and later rain by weds according to the ECM.
The ECM 12Z showing more rain then being forecast for Weds with the passage of an upper Low, small possibility of thunder also ( more so the S ). Tricky forecasting I would imagine this week with troughs and weak fronts and temperature there to kick off convection at times with enough diurnal heating perhaps.
Thurs looks generally cloudy / some thunder breaking out in the SW later in the afternoon perhaps.
Short range models for the rain potential until tomorrow evening:
Jealous of the rain that the north coast looks to be getting!
ECM 12Z and GFS 12Z showing Sunday before any real rain comes through the country. ECM showing not much making it over to the Eastern half on this run.
GFS showing a different story which would be welcome by many I'm sure. Couldn't tell you which way it will go.
Probably not this way, GFS always overestimates precip by a huge margin (to the dismay of those of us who are snow lovers, during winter )
