There is a weather verse associated with Candlemas that goes:
If Candlemas day be fair and bright,Winter will have another fight.If Candlemas day brings cloud and rain,Winter won’t come again.
If Candlemas day be dry and fair,The half of winter’s to come and mair.If Candlemas day be wet and foul,The half o’ the winter’s gone at yule.
Well, Candlemas was certainly dry and fair here, so what came next (within a couple of days)?
Of course, snow.
