The south west wind brings the rain.
The eastern wind brings hard cold weather and very often frost.
The north wind brings the cold showers.
The west wind brings the fine weather.
When the wind blows down the chimney and the soot falls, it is a sign of rain.
When the wind raises the dust of the road it is also for rain.
When there is a ring around the moon it is for rain.
If there is blue smoke in the hills it is for fine weather.
