Weather Models Continue Colder Trend Long Range

We continue to see weather models trending colder over the last several days. Weather models have been led by the European weather model which has been the coldest of all the global weather models. Earlier today the European developed a strong ridge building over the Gulf of Alaska while ridging builds in the Western Atlantic along 55 West which essentially traps 2 separate polar vortexes in Canada. The lead one plunges southward into James Bay and intensifies which brings in the first shot of cold air late next week.

The new overnight GFS model is similar however there are some important differences. First off the trough in the east is stretched north south and would imply a cold front with a wave developing on it. It does have building ridges on both coasts like the European and the important factor going forward in terms of the long range will be with those ridges build across the top at the pole. If this happens it would effectively lock in the polar vortex in Canada which means a much less transient pattern. Indeed the new GFS model suggests that the ridges do indeed build across the pole and we suddenly have a very cold looking pattern going forward.

The dayside European built the ridge across the Arctic and it is pretty evident at the end of the forecast period.  The new GFS model then pulls part of the vortex out as a new vortex takes its place. Now let me a few things clear. All cold air masses are essentially transient. They all have to pull out to some degree. The question going forward will be whether there is enough blocking. Judging by what we have seen so far, it would seem that odds would favor cold air masses pulling out to some degree. Also we don’t know exactly how cold it will get. Those are short range forecast problems rather than long range. Also with regards to snow threats, I would say the same thing. The fact that the GFS model is not especially bullish on snow threats is to me a non factor. Consider how many snow threats the GFS model showed in the long range. I would say at least a dozen. Guess what? None came to be. The 5 nickle and dime snows we have seen including last Saturday’s 3 to 6 inch snowfall didn’t seriously materialize until we were well inside the 7 day time frame. Therefore I would suggest that we all keep open minds on how this all ultimately plays out. I certainly will be waiting to see what tonight’s European model shows before even to begin to come to any conclusions regarding all of this. This process has a long way to go.
