Oak out before Ash

"If the oak is out before the ash we are in for a splash.
If the ash is out before the oak we are in for a soak."

This old piece of weather lore probably has more to do with ground water levels and the spring so far as although is has been a dry winter and spring we have certainly had a soak during the early part of May.
