    Rick it was based on Jetstream which has now taken different path,so looked at 14th which should be more stable

    From a selfish point I'm glad it's postponed as our airfield is closed at the moment as a precaution to the bird flu outbreak (chicken farm on site) but airfield owner is keen to reopen the runways as soon as it's possible

    I know dave.... It's unpredictable, hence why meteorologists don't predict it that far.

    Personally, I hope it doesn't go ahead next weekend either, as I have an unavoidable commitment, but if the weather is right, it'll happen.

    The general consensus of the long range forecast for this weekend (Jan 14th and 15th)
    Is that the prevailing wind will gradually become northerly bringing an arctic chill to the UK.
