  Collection of Weather Sayings SKY ã   Red sky at night, sailors delight. Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning.  SUN ã   Haloes around the sun or moon indicate a rain or snow real soon.   ã   A reddish sun has water in his eye; before long you won't be dry.   ã   When the sun sets bright and clear, an easterly wind you need not fear.   ã   Evening red and morning gray, a good sign for a fair day.   ã   If the sun in red should set, the next day surely will be wet; if the sun should set in gray, the next will be a fair day.  MOON ã   Pale moon rains, red moon blows; white moon neither rains nor blows. ã   The moon her face be red, of water she speaks. ã   When the moon raises red and appears large, with clouds, expect rain in twelve hours. ã   When the moon is darkest near the horizon, expect rain.   ã   Clear moon, frost soon.  CLOUDS ã   High clouds indicate fine weather will prevail; lower clouds mean rain. ã   When clouds look like rocks and towers, the Earth will be refreshed by showers.   ã   Clouds on the setting sun's brow indicate rain.   ã   If cumulus clouds are smaller at sunset than at noon, expect fair weather. ã   When cumulus clouds become heaped in leeward during a strong wind at sunset, thunder may be expected during the night.   ã   Cumulus clouds in a clear blue sky, it will likely rain.   ã   Mares' tails and mackerel scales make tall ships take in their sails.  PRECIPITATION ã   A sunny shower won't last an hour. WIND ã   A wind from the south has rain in its mouth. ã   If cirrus clouds form in weather with a falling barometer, it is almost sure to rain.  BIRDS ã   If the goose honks high, fair weather; if the goose honks low, foul weather.   ã   Birds flying low, expect rain and a blow. ã   If the lark flies high, expect fair weather. ã   If the rooster crows on going to bed, you may rise with a watery head. ã   If the raven crows, expect rain. ã   When geese cackle, it will rain.  ã   When ducks quack loudly, it's a sign of rain. ã   The hooting of the owl brings rain. ã   If the sparrow makes a lot of noise, rain will follow. ã   When parrots whistle, expect rain.  INSECTS ã   Crickets are accurate thermometers; they chirp faster when warm and slower when cold.   ã   Cockroaches are more active before a storm.   ã   Locusts sing when the air is hot and dry.   ã   Before a rain, ants are very busy, gnats bite, crickets are lively, spiders leave their nest; and flies gather in houses.   ã   When spider’s webs in air do fly, the spell will soon be very dry. ã   If garden spiders forsake their webs, it indicates rain. ã   If spiders are many and spinning their webs, the spell will soon be very dry. ã   Spiders enlarge and repair their webs before bad weather.  MAMMALS ã   When a cow endeavors to scratch his ear, it means a rain shower is very near. When he thumps his ribs with an angry tail, look out for thunder, lightning and hail. ã   If a dog pulls his feet up high while walking, a change in the weather is coming. ã   Cats scratch a post before wind; Wash their faces before a rain; and sit with backs to the fire before snow. ã   Cats with their tails up and hair apparently electrified indicate approaching wind. ã   Horses run fast before a violent storm or before windy conditions. ã   Pigs gather leaves and straw before a storm. ã   If the bull leads the cows to pasture, expect rain; if the cows precede the bull, the weather will be uncertain. REPTILES/AMPHIBIANS ã   The louder the frog, the more the rain. ã   If frogs make a noise during cold rain, warm dry weather will follow. PLANTS/TREES ã   Open crocus, warm weather. Closed crocus, cold weather. Tulips open their blossoms when the temperature rises; they close again when the temperature falls. ã   The daisy shuts its eye before rain. ã   If the marigold should open at six or seven in the morning and not close until four in the afternoon, we may reckon on settled weather. ã   Flowers smell best just before a rain. ã   Dandelion blossoms close before a rain. ã   When the milkweed closes its pod, expect rain. ã   The pitcher plant opens wider before a rain. ã   Chickweeds close their leaves before a rain.
