I thought that I would just take a look back at the history of this pesky cold front that’s been quasi-stationary for much of the last five days over the northwest of Scotland and try and get into the mind and thinking of the Great Oz Chief forecaster as he analyses each six hour chart. I always thought continuity was key to this process, but obviously I was wrong. In the lastest T+24 forecast chart he seems to have lost the plot completely, as the slow moving cold front has now seemingly undergone rapid “occlusification” or whatever the meteorological term for it is – so much for the Bergen school.
