Looks like we could be in for a prolonged cold snap, so here is a thread to keep people up to date on the impact on racing.

The Met Office forecast for the 30 days up to December 21 warns "the cold or very cold conditions are likely to continue" and "temperatures are likely to continue to be below or well below average, with widespread overnight frost, locally severe."
