Weather Folklore of the Day

When round the moon there is a brugh [halo], The weather will be cold and rough. - Scottish proverb

Last 7 Days

    Cows all lying down in a field indicate coming rain.

    If a black cloud eclipse the solar ray, And sudden night usurp the place of day. -Aratus [indicating rain]

    Children misbehave more on a windy day.

    Fogs in February mean frosts in May.

    When eager bites the thirsty flea, Clouds and rain you sure shall see.

    To talk of the weather, it's nothing but folly,For when it's rain on the hill, it may be sun in the valley. - Robert Chambers (1802-1871) Popular Rhymes of Scotland

    A sunshiny shower never lasts half an hour.
