Red Sky at Night, Sailor’s Delight

Over the years, everyone from farmers to sailors have looked for ways to read the weather. While we can’t always guarantee they’ll work, here are some old adages we hope will keep you warm and dry.

Signs of good weather:

  • A red sky in the evening means the next day will be clear.
  • A rainbow in the morning usually indicates clear skies for the rest of the day.
  • Birds flying high in the sky means good weather will continue throughout the day.
  • Wind blowing from the west is a sign of mild weather to come.

Signs of bad weather:

  • A red sky in the morning is a sign of bad weather later that day.
  • A rainbow in the evening predicts rain the following day.
  • When the moon has a halo at night, it’s a sign of rain or snow.
  • Birds flying low in the sky is an indication of rain.
  • When spiders repair their webs and make them bigger, it can be a sign of bad weather to come.
  • Wind blowing from the east indicates harsh weather.
  • If pigs gather leaves and hay or flowers close their petals, a storm’s brewing.
