Weather Folklore's

Post by windstorm on 2013-06-25, 7:24 am

Anyone that would like to put on here Weather Folklore's they have heard during the time they were growing up please post them here. I know many of them we have all hear from time to time. But some of you may have some that many of us have not heard. And what is your thinking of weather folklore's. ? Do you put any trust into these saying or do you think maybe Grandpa-pa, and Grandma ma may have over medicated them self when saying theses thing. Plus have you seen some of these come true year after year. Thanks...  I will get back on this as soon as i have time . Have a good day and God Bless.rfl

Clover contracts its leaves at the approach of a storm.  
If corn husks are thicker than usual, a cold winter lies ahead.  
If flowers keep open all night, the weather will be wet the next day.
Lightning in the south
Is a sure sign of drought.popcorn

Some of them make no sense whatsoever but there is a few that have some scientific backing

Along with that-lightning in the North-rain within 48hrs. This one is actually true more often than not, in my experience.

Seems like also when the wind is coming out of the North after a front passes by they don't do so good either. Least for me....

This, my friends is what you want to see, if you want cold winter weather. First one I've ever seen anywhere that was solid black. Found this one at work today in Morristown.

First one I've ever seen. How appropriate that he came to our office haha (I work for a pest control company for those that don't know) We may try to preserve him for prosterity sakes.

Yeah, I've heard different variations on that, off and on over the years. Most of the folklore I've heard is more for February thunder, in that the number of days you have thunder on in February equals the number of freezes you'll have in March. However, have also heard that the number of thunder's, not just the days it thunders in December equals the number of freezes in January. If that's the case, then Jan. would be brutal here, b/c I was counting lightning strikes this morning and quit around 25. It was really the most thunder and lightning we've had here in Morristown, in quite awhile. Sad that we could get more thunder in Dec. than we could in late summer and early Fall. wacko

this women does this every year. Never heard of her. Maybe some of you have. It kind of a folklore I guess. Just for the heck of it I cut one open. And inside was the shape of a spoon. I like reading difference way's people try and predict the weather. But some people take it to heart.  http://farmersalmanac.com/blog/2014/09/26/persimmon-lady-winter-2015/

Other folklore.  
   Expect rain when dogs eat grass, cats purr and wash, sheep turn into the wind, oxen sniff the air, and swine are restless.
   If the bull leads the cows to pasture, expect rain; if the cows precede the bull, the weather will be uncertain.
   When cats sneeze, it is a sign of rain.
   When cattle lie down in the pasture, it indicates early rain.
   Bats flying late in the evening indicates fair weather.
   If the groundhog sees its shadow on Candlemas Day (February 2), six more weeks of winter remain.
   When horses and cattle stretch out their necks and sniff the air, it will rain.
   If the mole digs its hole 2½ feet deep, expect severe weather; if two feet deep, not so severe; if one foot deep, a mild winter.
   When pigs gather leaves and straw in all, expect a cold winter.
   When rabbits are fat in October and November, expect a long, cold winter.
   If sheep ascend hills and scatter, expect clear weather.
   Wolves always howl more before a storm.
