    So do i. But if it doesnt turn out as bad,it cheers me up no end.It also helps me prepare,otherwise i would just carry on thinking the mild weather will last all Winter.I still have suckler cows outside,and need to put sheep round feeders ready with hay,if we do get hit with a foot of snow,

    A pessimist is never disappointed.

    A pessimist, is just an experienced optimist.

    Are they a reliable bunch on the weather forum you refer to, do they usually come up with similar long range forecast, i.e a month in advance?

    Yup, walked over a lot of ploughed land today shooting and reckon it'd drill beautifully with a combi or a set of Spring Tines and then Vaddy

    As with all forums, there are posters who know their apples and those that dont, it takes time to learn who is good and who isnt so. But a few very clever people seem to suggest that cold is coming and if/when it comes it could stay around for quite some time.
    24th seems the date they were keen on re snow down this way.

    Its not quite that dry here but getting there.
    Nothing ever drilled here before mid march in the last 31yrs ive farmed it.
    Its just where we are Colder easterly wind off that north sea & just in a part of the country thats poss one of the colder places in the UK all year round.
    i drilled my last spring crop which was barley on may7th in 2018 & still managed to sow it into OSR on the 14th of Sept & its all there.
    Neither id normally do thru choice but what a varied year weather wise it turned out to be

    Perhaps best to leave drill in the shed till mid Feb/Early March.

    They are still talking snow on the forum, with it potentially getting very cold end Jan into Feb. Looks like plenty of chances for snow starting as early as next week.

    Depends where this next big high pressure is going to end up.High up to the North West of Britain will bring Easterlies and snow,but slightly closer to the West of us will bring North Westerlies which will be not quite as bad.
