Olde Weather Lores

A blustering night is followed by a fair day.

A cold May and windy Makes a full barn and *findy (*solid)

A dry May and a dripping June bring all things into tune.

A fair day in winter is the mother of a storm.

A green (or mild) winter makes a full churchyard.

A large crop of hips and hawthorn berries in autumn heralds a harsh winter ahead.

A mackerel sky is never long dry.

Bees always return to their hives before a thunderstorm.

Cloudy mornings turn to clear evenings.

If candlemas day be fair and bright, winter will take another bite.

If candlemas day it be shower and rain, winter is gone and will not come again.

If January’s calendar be summery gay, t’will be wintry weather til end of May.

If Largo Law (Fife hill) wears a cowl, beware of winds and weather foul.

If on the eighth of June it rain, it foretells a wet harvest, gentlemen sain.

If rooks nest low in the trees, expect an unsettled and stormy spring.

If St Vitus day (15th June) be rainy weather, it will rain for 30 days together.

If skylarks descend rapidly, rain is imminent.

If the oak is out before the ash then you will get only a splash.
But if the ash precedes the oak then you may expect to get a soak.

If there be a rainbow in the eve, it will rain and then will leave.

Pale moon doth rain, red moon doth blow, white moon will never rain nor snow.

Rain before seven, fair before eleven.

Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight, red sky in the morning, shepherd’s take warning.

See in the sky a painter's brush, the wind will soon around you rush.

St Swithins day (15th July), if it doth rain, forty days it will remain.
St Swithins day if thou be fair, forty days twil rain no mair.

The full moon brings fair weather.

To a child, all weather is cold.

When around the moon there is a *brugh (*halo), the weather will be cold and rough.

When the mist come from the hill, then good weather it will spill.
If the mist come from the sea then cold weather it will be.

When the swallows fly high, next few days will be dry.

When the scarlet pimpernel's petals close, rain is on the way.

When the wind is in the east, ’tis neither good for man nor beast.
When the wind is in the west the weather is always at its best.
