Monster Atlantic Low Connecting Greenland With Cuba Is Reshaping Europe’s Pattern

Our nice prolonged dry spell is drawing to a close as our beloved high continues to deflate. Fronts are creeping into Irish and UK airspace in weak form but this is laying the ground for more significant wind and rain producers starting tomorrow.

As the high deflates in the west, so the trough and cold is weakening in the east. Note highs and lows weren’t as cold over the eastern continent yesterday compared to the previous day.

Fronts are shedding off a powerful Atlantic depression positioned east of Labrador. It’s primary cold front is connecting Greenland with Cuba!

This mother low will slowly cross the Atlantic, shedding new lows from it which will sweep across the UK. The main low never crosses the UK according to the models.

This setup is forcing tremendous height falls throughout the North Atlantic and will shape the 5-10 day atmosphere throughout Western Europe but as we progress beyond day 7, major height rises build from N Pacific across Alaska while a Scandinavian high builds WNW and eventually connects up. Something worth watching.
