SOLSC Day 12
With the relatively warm and dry winter we have had here in south central PA and with the warm temperatures we are having this week I was wondering how it would affect our weather patterns for the rest of the year. So to that end I decided to check out some weather folklore (totally unscientific) to see what is in store for us. I did not check out the Farmer’s Almanac.
Here are some things I found at https://www.wlky.com/article/belskis-blog-weather-folklore-for-spring/26881996.
Thunder in spring,
Cold will bring.
If the spring is cold and wet, the fall will be hot and dry.
A rainy spring is followed by a quiet summer.
A windy spring is followed by a cool summer.
If the first thunder of the season is in the south, then it will be a wet season.
If the first thunder of the season is in the north, then it will be a dry season.
If there is spring in winter and winter in spring,
the year won’t be good for anything.
Whatever the wind and the weather on the equinoxes (first day of spring & fall),
so will be the weather for the next 3 months.
With the first day of spring in the not too distant future it will be interesting to take note of the wind and weather on that day to see what we can expect for the next three months. I wonder, since I go for a free Rita’s ice on the first day of spring does that mean that I will get a Rita’s ice every day for the net three months? That might be a bit much for me.
