    Mod Note

    This thread is for posting/discussing/analyzing FI CHARTS ONLY i.e. Charts in the unreliable time frame, generally long range +T120 onward for Autumn 2022.

    If your post does not specifically relate to a Fantasy Island chart (extended long range charts) then it doesn't belong here - Off topic posts will be moved or deleted.



    Summer 2022 is over and what a cracking summer it was weatherwise with plenty of warm or hot and very dry conditions for much of July and August. It appears we are kicking autumn off on a very unsettled and autumnal note with a very unsettled first week to September but what about the second week?

    We start off on 7th September with an area of low pressure that will be circulating around Ireland from September 1st, it may last a little bit beyond this point.

    In the very extended range the GFS 12z wants to bring back high pressure and settle things down once again after possibly a very wet period of weather.

    The GFS 12z keeps this high over us for about 5 to 6 days, it's not a warm ridge, just average temperatures with this one but if there is enough sunshine and cloud doesnt become a problem then it could feel fairly warm and very pleasant.

    We finish up with signs of this ridge breaking down with Atlantic fronts heading towards Ireland.

    Some weather at last would be nice.

    The pub run is more High dominated though with storms waiting out West. There will probably be some unsettled weather midweek next week and by then we should know a bit more.

    A repeat of October 2015 would be nice!

    Looking at GFS this morning some cool and stormy weather at times in the offing past next Wednesday. Let's see if this pattern holds on the following runs.

    This mornings GFS 00z would be fascinating if this was December or January. All those northerlies. However it is still only September but it does look like we are going into a fairly prolonged spell of cooler than average temperatures for the first time in over a year.

    Mid October has consistently looked Windy or Stormy on the past number of runs. We could have our first named storm in the next 7 days sometime along with the usual "that wasn't Orange level" remarks.

    Lurking this thread to get some early indication of potential weather for the bank holiday weekend, more particularly the Sunday which will see the first Dublin city marathon in 3 years post pandemic. Anybody with chart reading abilities willing to give an idea?

    Obviously it's too far out to tell with much certainty but be interested for 'pig iron' as my granny used to say.

    I suppose the days are dark and short and maybe it's not the worst time of the year to be raining. And it's not mid winter either when we'd want something a bit colder.
