I usually post this topic every year - as it is my favourite weather saying of the year.. Candelmas day is this Sunday 2nd February and the saying goes - If candelmas day be fair and bright Winter will take another bite If candelmas day be grey with rain Winter has gone and won't come again Whilst weather lore is weather lore and rarely holds truth. I do think this one is quite a good one. Roughly speaking 2 Feb is mid winter in the farming winter calendar. The saying goes that farmers usually have half there winter feed still in stock on 2 Feb. Last year from memory I think the 2nd was a dry one and yes we had a good 6 weeks of winter weather thereafter (2 months in fact). Mmm this year it looks a damp squib..
