Meridionality/blocking around the NH is perhaps being amplified to a degree by re-curving typhoons.
Nice one Bruce. The first thing that has sprung to mind for me was whether early season Scandinavian blocking lowers the chance of later-season blocking when it has a decent chance of introducing properly cold air into the UK.Richard
Going to bring a couple of weeks of fairly dull, chilly,boring weather here in Essex I feel. Be great if it the scenario returns next February though :-)
I was expecting the same, Dave, but it has been very sunny here: I've already recorded 54% of a normal October! Is it because there's still plenty of oomph in the sun to clear any early low cloud? Or is the very dry ground playing a part?
Apologies for the typos throughout that waffling analysis. I am using a very small screen sized mobile with fat fingers. I had to turn off my Samsung Note 7 yesterday and today return it!
Here's the link. I didn't see pressure charts..yet.
