Candlemas

Recommended Posts

Well, the old saying "if candlemas be clear and bright, winter will have another bite" certainly proved correct where I live ( north Staffordshire ) and most of the UK.  It would be interesting to know what areas provide counter-examples.

I always post a thread each year about Candlemas, to remind everyone that cold is more likely to entrench itself in the second half of the winter than the first.

Candlemas, 2nd February, if clouds and rain, winter is gone and will not come again.. probably works just as well too, as a dull, wet end January/ early February may tie with a progressive mild pattern (as in 2011 after the severe first half of winter). 

The clear and bright scenario certainly worked this year, for February and March!
