Mid Latitude Trough

The attached screenshot shows a series of nighttime spots between the UK and Denmark. I often see similar runs but to different Scandinavian locations. They are always very specific paths. My theory is that they are the result of E layer propagation from the northern wall of the mid latitude trough. This dips south in slightly disturbed conditions. Is that a likely explanation?
