The British Meteorological Office has finally got itself sorted out. …
It must be the season. I think I am back in love with the Met Office again.
I wonder how long I have been missing out. The links on there surpass what the BBC R4 bulletin manages. (Still not in love with them!)
The thing is can I be bothered Weatherlawyering it? Hmmm. I'm curious to see how the pressure warnings pan out locally and along the North Pacific rim. (And I am glad I am not tied to the night or early morning schedule from the Beeb.)
But do I want to descend into hell again?
High Ireland 1042 slow moving with little change by 0600 tomorrow+
At 210000 UTC, low 53 north 48 west 985 expected 68 north 43 west 996 by 220000 UTC. New low expected 53 north 38 west 998 by same time. Low 71 north 04 west 991 expected 74 north 20 east 990 by that time.
210000 UTC, high 54 north 06 west 1041 expected 55 north 09 west 1043 by 220000 UTC. New high expected 73 north 19 west 1027 by same time
21 Jan 2011 07:00:46.3 27.1N 143.4E 10 mb=5.1 M*GSR BONIN ISLANDS REGION 0854

No recent Mag 6 or greater since the 18th. That 985 millibars looks interesting and it pulled out those Aleut quakes on Wodin's day:
19 Jan 2011 04:59:50.4 51.3N 178.2W 33 mb=5.1 M*GSR ANDREANOF ISLANDS, ALEUTIA 0705
19 Jan 2011 04:59:50.2 50.1N 176.9W 60 mb=5.2 M*ROM ANDREANOF ISLANDS, ALEUTIA 0550
or not, as the case is unlikely not to have been.
The above Met Office chart showed it just off the USA. It will wait for the High over Britain to clear, I imagine, before jumping the Ridge. In stable situations (+ve NAO) it will go to Iceland. Which means more high pressure for us.
Jan 19 21:21 is an awkward one but most of Greenland is Low sort of a betwixt and between one.
But this is all very positive stuff:
Jan 26 12:57 Wet (Low over the UK)
Feb 3 02:31 A 3 Lows around 990 mb build on the Mid Atlantic*
Ridge and head north-east in between two Highs (if one is over Greenland)
Feb 11 07:18 Very wet – if there is a low over Greenland. So pretty much an awkward run to guess.
More snow in a few days (spell ends 25th 26th Jan 2011) Archive weather charts can be found with this search:

But any work I post on this spell will be very much an hind-cast as I get tuned into what I am able to do. I wish I have a connection at home. But the cheapest ISPs all wnat me to sign up for a long contract and I am thinking of moving soon.
*That spell would be a perfect tornado forecast if the season was right. But they still occur in winter. So if you know anyone who livews in the USA or Canada you might want to warn them.
Winter tornadoes tend not to occur in the mid west in Winter as they require more time to build up to do that. I'll explain it in more detail some other time.
One nice thing to complement the MetO availability is that I can get onto the NEIC lists once more. (Whoever was stopping me doing that, congratulations. Pity I don't think there is a hell for I'd be happy to see you there along side me.)
