People speak of the new moon lying on her back or being ill-made as a prognostic of wet weather.
Children misbehave more on a windy day.
If the Moon shows a silver shield,Don't be afraid to reap your field;But if she rises haloed round, Soon you'll walk on flooded ground.
Seaweed dry,sunny sky;Seaweed wet,rain you'll get. - New England proverb
The first and the last frosts are the worst.
When snow falls dry,It means to lie;But flakes light and softBring rain oft.
The fewer visible stars, the more moisture in the atmosphere.
