Summary of internationally available experimental Forecasts for current month and next month for the UK and Eire
Updated -040620- Typically updated during Thursday/Friday). Major updates may be noted on Twitter @T2mike
Met Office regular update text for 30days
Interpreted from UKMO for UK area only.
UKMO 030620 - 8th June to 2nd July 2020 - Some rain or showers at times, more frequent in the north and less so in parts of the S and W. Trending to drier, more settled weather from late in June. Colder than average temperature to start the month warming towards normal in the south and later possibly warm in places in the south and near normal elsewher.
UKMO 270520 - 1st to 25th June 2020 - The dry weather looks set to end in places early in June with an increasing risk of rain or showers especally in the N and W as temperatures ease back to normal. The the south may remain warmer and drier and later in June return to settled warm weather.

Graphcs will appear below as available.
CFS2 E3 ensemble of 10 days of model runs. Updated - see date on graphic.
1. NORMAL=typically the model normal based on historic runs rather than the measured normal from observation - hence trends rather than numbers are a better guide.
2. CFS2 seasonal anomalies are with respect to the lead dependent model climatology from the hindcast period (1999-2010) without any adjustment - a very warm decade!.
3. UKMET The hindcast period used for model normal is 1996 to 2009. 42-member ensemble seasonal forecast (120KM res over land) combining and bias correcting all forecast members available prior to issue.
4. CFS2 Weekly forecast anomalies are with respect to 1999-2010 hindcast climatology which was a warm period (SST 1982-2010) also mostly a wet period for Uk
compared to longer period stats.
CFS2 Monthly and seasonal hind cast period 1982-2010
5. NMME data, please see the BAMS article (Kirtman et al. 2014
). The NMME project and data dissemination is supported by NOAA, NSF, NASA and DOE. with the
help of NCEP, IRI and NCAR personnel in creating, updating and maintaining the NMME archive.
