A Weather Lore

Bright yellow sky at sunset presages wind, pale yellow, wet.

Flowers open with greater freedom in anticipation of fine weather.

Spiders remain quiet or spin with restricted effect, when it is likely to rain.

Birds fly low for rain.

Cocks crow, when rainy weather is likely to clear.

Animals shelter instead of spreading over their usual range, bad weather may be expected.

Dew & fod are indications of fine weather.
