When the rainbow is in the east it is a sign of good weather. When it is in the west, it is a sign that the bad weather is on its way to us. When the rainbow is seen in the mornings it is a sign of bad weather and when it is seen at night, it is a sign of good weather. The rainbow on a Saturday is a sign of a good week to follow. The rainbow on a Sunday is a sign of a bad week to follow.

St. Ciaran's,
A rainbow in the morning is the shepherd's warning and a rainbow in the night is the shepherds delight.
Patrick Commins
